Package Details

  • Two (2) tickets to the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, 17 February 2017
  • Two (2) tickets to NBA All-Star Practice on Saturday, 18 February 2017
  • Two (2) tickets to State Farm All-Star Saturday Night on Saturday, 18 February 2017
  • Two (2) tickets to the NBA D-League All-Star Game presented by Kumho Tire on Saturday, 18 February 2017
  • Two (2) tickets to the NBA All-Star Game 2017 on Sunday, 19 February 2017
  • Four-night (4-night) stay at The Saint, Autograph Collection, 16-20 February 2017
  • Two (2) round trip domestic air tickets to New Orleans International Airport

The lowest package available currently is at 120,000 Starpoints. At a 2 cent per point valuation, that would mean, right now, that it is valued at $2,400. I think that would be a great value of the points right now considering that 4 nights at The Saint (a Marriott property, by the way) would cost over $1,000 just by itself. Then, you can include 2 domestic tickets into it and that cost could widely vary but could be seen as a $600 value. Now, we are at $1,600 and that does not even include any of the tickets to the events!

Cost for Event Tickets

  • The Celebrity game tickets are currently selling for $240 each
  • All-Star practice tickets can be purchased for as low as $29 each
  • The All-Star Saturday night tickets are currently at $420 each
  • The actual NBA All-Star game tickets are selling for a minimum of $585 each.
  • Minimum Total Value – $1,853 for two people

When we add all of the minimum costs together, we are looking at a package value of around $3,400. That’s not too bad! If you are an NBA fan, this may be a package you want to bid on!
