I’ve used 8 figures of miles earned from credit cards to fly myself and my family around the world in first class cabins and stay in five star hotels that would have otherwise cost millions of dollars. There’s no better hobby in the world. In 2016 and 2017 alone I burned nearly 4 million miles. But just as memorable as a refreshing shower or a couples suite on a plane, are the sports experiences that I’ve redeemed miles for.

 

Because who would want to spend a month in a stuffy Manhattan hotel anyway 😉

SPG Moments allows you to use points for all kinds of neat experiences, and there are some awesome ones up for bid and instant redemption right now.

In 2013 I used 25K United miles for 4 box seats to an Indians game. With one little bonus: In middle of the game I got to run onto the field and steal 2nd base! People around the stadium were shocked to see someone walking around with 2nd base. I got the base signed by several players, including the winning pitcher that night, and it hangs in my office today. It still has the Jacobs Field dirt on it. Truly a thrilling experience for a die-hard Tribe fan.

That inspired a reader to give their kid an awesome Bar Mitzvah present for an LA sports fanatic, throwing at the first pitch at a Dodgers game:

 

In 2014 a DDF member won an SPG auction for the SPG Luxury Suite in Wrigley Field when the Cubs hosted the Yankees. He invited several members to a DO, so I flew to Chicago for the day on a 4.5K Avios award.

SPG even provided kosher food for us in their awesome suite!

 

In August a team of DDF members got together and bid to play in a softball tournament in Wrigley Field. We had an incredible time playing ball and once again SPG hooked our team up with kosher food.

In October 2016, SPG auctioned off the rights to throw out the first pitch before game 3 in Wrigley Field. I wrote about it then and asked SPG to auction it off again for a game that wasn’t being played on Shabbos.

SPG pulled through and I spent 1.06 million of my Starpoints for the experience of my lifetime. I still have to pinch myself to believe it.

I won’t rehash it again. You can read all about it here:

In NY so i can’t but why can’t you bid really high for the National Anthem auction and butcher your audition. 2 Free tickets sounds sweet :)…all SPG Points refunded

U never know if the other 2 groups who won have the same plan.
BTW how do u send in a tape? Do they still sell tape recorders?

Question

Will SPG Moments still exist after SPG combines with Marriott?
