One of my favorite deals on the SPG Moments website is the annual ticket drop of US Open tickets.
They are a mix of fixed price and auction style. For around 50,000 – 55,000 Starpoints on courtside seats or sky is the limit on the auction items, you can use your Starpoints for amazing seats or a spot in a suite. I did this myself two years ago and had an amazing time (the picture below is from my seats there that day).
Here’s what is available:
US Open Courtside Seats – SPG Moments
You are probably wondering what kind of value you are getting out of these points – and truth be told you won’t be killing it with these. The fixed price ones have gone up a lot in points cost since the early days of Moments – probably fair enough since they used to sell out in minutes because of the deal they were. My tickets were somewhere in the 40,000 range in 2014 and at $270 a ticket I maybe got 1.25 c in value from my Starpoints. This year fixed Arthur Ashe night games start at 50,000 points.
But this was one of those times where I said “I’m never going to PAY for these tickets, so let’s have a great night.” And I definitely did.
