From time to time I write about Starwood Preferred Guest “Moments” opportunities where you can use SPG points for some pretty cool experiences beyond just SPG hotel stays and partner airline transfers. These sort of things aren’t for everyone, but they are worth looking at from time to time because you never know what will pop up. I’ve seen red carpet events, prime sports event tickets, exclusive access to concerts, and much more. Some of the packages carry with them a hefty points price tag, but some have been only a couple thousand points. Heck, we’ve even spent points to participate in a few including luxury box seats at Wrigley Field and an awesome Vegas weekend where we were only a few spots away from winning 1,000,000 SPG points in a blackjack tournament.
The package that I want to mention today will not be one of the cheapest packages out there, but I personally think it is one of the coolest. Via a points auction that runs until June 26th, you can have chance to win an opportunity for your softball team of twelve people to play a game at Chicago’s Wrigley Field! You don’t just get to tour the stadium or walk on the field, you get to play a freaking game there – how cool is that?! Last year lots of Mommy Points readers were able to participate in the event, but it was also priced differently at a fixed number of points for two people to join the team.
Included with the package this year are customized MLB Cub jerseys, a behind-the-scenes tour of the ballpark, a catered BBQ lunch, and a chance to meet Cubs alumni. As if that isn’t enough (you had me at play ball at Wrigley Field), the team that wins the game also wins some SPG points! The roster for the game is capped at 12, but you can bring up to two additional people to watch and partake in the tour, food, etc. for 1,000 additional SPG points each. Participants must be 13 years old and up.
The event will take place on July 18th starting at noon and whoever wins will have my envy! The bidding is currently at 34,500 SPG points, which is a lot, but remember this event covers 12 people so that may help take the sting out a little.
Have a blast if you happen to be one of the lucky few who plays ball at Wrigley Field!
