Use SPG Points Now to Attend the US Open

The US Open tennis tournament in NYC each year is a widely popular event, and thankfully in each of the recent years Starwood Preferred Guest has provided opportunities for their members and cardholders to access not only tickets but some cool US Open experiences. These offerings are now up on the SPG Moments page, but be aware that these are generally very popular packages that sell out quickly. In other words, run, don’t walk if you want to have your pick…

Use SPG Points at the US Open or to Play Ball at Wrigley Field

The SPG Moments program is one of my favorite ways to use points if you aren’t going to use them directly for travel. They offer really amazing access to events via your SPG points, and it is often the type of access you couldn’t buy with cash even if you tried. Two of the SPG events that I have really enjoyed in the past include watching a Cub’s game from the luxury box at Wrigley Field and hanging out in the hospitality…

Get Last Minute Points Deals on Houston Super Bowl Hotels

As you may well know, the Super Bowl is just two days away here in Houston. We didn’t end up having to make any “tough” decisions about splurging on tickets or not since my husband’s team didn’t make it past the second round of the playoffs, but since I’m always fascinated by what miles and points can do when rates are really high I took a peek at hotel rooms in Houston for this upcoming weekend. Given that I’ve heard…

Trying to Come Up With The Super Compromise to The Super Bowl

I wrote a couple weeks ago about my internal debate on really splurging on a “once in a lifetime” experience when the price is higher than I wished. While in retrospect some experiences may indeed be priceless, the price tag they come with can be breathtaking…and not in a good way.   Along those lines, my husband’s lifelong favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, are having a really good year, and making it to the Super Bowl is not outside the realm…

When is a Priceless Experience Too Pricey?

One of the cornerstones of my being is that experiences are generally worth more than things. I not only say that, but I live it both through this running this blog, the trips we take, the presents I give family members, the time we dedicate to seeing family, and more. I mean, I don’t take it to an extreme and live out of a travel backpack with a baby strapped on bouncing from city to city for months or years…

SPG Moments Opportunities to Attend the 2016 World Series

I think most of the country (outside of perhaps Cleveland) is excited that the Chicago Cubs have made it to the World Series. I’m fairly certain that no one reading this blog was alive the last time the Cubs won the World Series as you would have to be a distinguished age of 108 to be able to claim that title. The Cubs and Wrigley Field are just pretty special, so I know who I will be rooting for starting tonight…sorry Indians.…
