We used this same bonus last year not to book hotel rooms but to instead take advantage of the SPG Moments program that allows you to redeem loyalty points for experiences. We attended a Chicago Cubs game in a luxury suite at Wrigley Field FREE and went to see “School of Rock” on Broadway, purchasing 4 tickets for the price of 1! You know how much I love to travel and experience FREE and CHEAPLY, and SPG offers an amazing way to do so!

SPG Moments allows you to either purchase “moments” for a set points price or bid on them through an auction process. I prefer the “set price” options, so I know how much I have to spend and am certain I have purchased the experience!
