Redeem Starpoints For The 2017 US Open

While in general my preference is to redeem airline miles for flights and hotel points for hotel stays, there are some exceptions. One of those is SPG Moments, which is Starwood’s experiences marketplace. SPG Moments allows you to redeem Starpoints for tickets to sold out events, including concerts, sporting events, cultural activities, etc.

This really isn’t a gimmick. SPG Moments not only represents a great value in many cases compared to what you’d pay for a similar experience in cash, but can also get you VIP access to otherwise sold out events. This is because SPG sponsors many events, and also has “suites” at many arenas/stadiums, which gives you almost unparalleled access to things. I’ve experienced a few SPG Moments, including the SPG Suite at the US Openthe SPG Suite at a One Direction concert, and the SPG Suite at an Adele concert.

If you’re a tennis fan, as of today SPG Moments has put up several great US Open packages. These will sell out quickly (and some have already sold out), so check out the SPG Moments sports page as soon as possible if you’re interested.

Some packages have fixed points prices, while others allow you to bid, so there are lots of options.

For example, you can redeem 35,000 Starpoints for two seats in the SPG Luxury Suite, which includes complimentary food and drinks. There are lots of options, so check them out before they sell out!

Anyone plan on redeeming Starpoints for the 2017 US Open?

  1. We went last year to the suite and it was great. Great food and tennis. Now that they have a roof, you are guaranteed to not be rained out.

    It was 50,000 points last year, looks like they dropped the price to 35,000.

  2. I will be there!! The SPG moments front page said the packages would be released today. However, I checked last night at about 11 pm EST and they were all available. 🙂

    My first SPG Moments experience. Looking forward to it.

    @ben Any advice/suggestions for maximizing the SPG suite experience?

  3. It’s still 50k for access to the official balcony seats outside the suite, 35k for seats they set up behind the glass inside the suite and some temporary chairs they might put on the balcony, it looks like.
