Moments is an auction program where you can bid for a reward. Rewards include tickets to music concerts, sporting events and the arts.
There is an ongoing list of rewards that you can bid on.
In terms of music concerts, you can bid on premium concert tickets, members-only acoustic performances and even backstage tours to meet with your favourite artists.
For sporting events, you can bid on VIP tournament tickets, luxury suite access and even skills clinic with top pro players. Currently there are several offers related to the FIFA World Cup that can be exciting.
Lastly, you can bid on the arts (stage, theatre) for premier opening-night tickets, VIP hospitality suites providing food and beverages, as well as dressing room and stage tours.
You can also view the archive section to see what was previously offered.
What is great about this auction feature is that you can bid the maximum points that you are willing to dish out for a reward. If you win the bid, then you know you’re getting great value from it. But if you lose the bid, then it’s fine too, because then you know you won’t overpay for it.
Once I increase my SPG account, I definitely plan on looking into the Moments program in much more detail. In the meantime, you can jump-start your SPG account with the American Express Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card, which unfortunately dropped back to a 10,000 sign up bonus and $120 annual fee.
