We points “junkies” are somewhat different compared to most people. When I say ORD you know I am talking about Chicago. We all have in our heads what a point is worth in Delta’s program or in say the AMEX Membership Rewards program. We all think about redeeming points for their best value in quantity of airline seats or quality of seats. If going for a hotel we want the biggest room for the least points. That’s value for our, ah hem, “hard earned” points!

 

Well here is a redemption I bet most of you have never ever seen or looked at. It is the SPG “Experiences” page. Most of us bloggers love the SPG personal and business card points due to the fact that if you send say 20,000 points to Delta you end up with 25,000. Redemption for rooms is very nice also. But points are for more than just cost savings. Most of us will never want to or have the income to spend say $10,000 for a 1st class Lufthansa ticket but will happily burn 135,000 points to do it. So my point is how many times, for any price, could you have the chance to play golf with say Lee Trevino, Gary Player, Bob Charles, Billy Casper? Or have a golf lesson from Mark McCumber and Andy North and then play the TPC Sawgrass? Look at this part of the SPG site for all the things you can spend your points on other than air and hotels.

 

Is the experience worth the points? That is up to you but I want you at least to think outside the box and know what you can do with SPG points that money can not always buy! – René
