Receive 100 Starpoints For Bidding On An SPG Moments Package

SPG Moments is Starwood’s experiences marketplace. As much as my preference is generally to redeem Starpoints for free flights and hotels, this can actually be a great use of points as well. I think it’s an especially brilliant offering since a lot of road warriors don’t actually want to spend any more time on the road, so SPG Moments gives them an opportunity to redeem points for loved ones without having to travel even more. I’m also happy to see that Marriott Rewards is adopting this concept.

I’ve attended several SPG Moments events, including:

SPG-Suite-US-Open - 11

SPG Moments come in two forms:

  • Fixed price packages, where you can redeem a certain number of points to instantly buy a package
  • Auctions, where you can bid on a package, and whoever bids the most at the deadline wins

Per the SPG Dashboard, you can earn 100 Starpoints if you redeem or bid on an SPG Moments event:

Enjoy access to the best culture, sports, culinary and music experiences in the world with SPG MomentsSM. Redeem or bid on an event and earn 100 bonus Starpoints®.

Don’t wait — this bonus won’t last long. Check the terms and conditions for timing.

Per the terms you don’t actually have to win an auction to be eligible for the bonus Starpoints, but rather just have to place a bid. For what it’s worth, I value Starpoints at 2.2 cents each, so to me 100 Starpoints are worth just $2.20. Also keep in mind that any account activity will reset your points expiration date.

Bonus points should post 2-4 weeks after your bid/purchase of a package, and the promotion runs through July 9, 2016.

Bottom line

I think it’s always worth taking a look at the incredible SPG Moments packages which are available. If you see one you like, buy it or bid on it. Otherwise, there are plenty of auctions available right now which only expire a couple of months from now, meaning the bidding is likely to get way higher. So maybe a bid isn’t a bad idea either, though remember that you could end up winning!

    “Earn 500 Starpoints® when you book your next stay through the SPG app.”

    Question
    If I book and then cancel do you think I get to keep the 500

  3. answered my own question from terms and conditions

    An eligible member can earn 500 Starpoints for completing a stay that was booked using the SPG app. The booking must be made by Jun-04-2016 and the qualifying stay must be completed by Jun-04-2016.
