Ending Soon! Use SPG Points for 2 Business Class Tickets on Inaugural Emirates Flight + 5 Nights in a Suite!

Written by Charlie

This SPG auction is ending very soon! Use your SPG points to book 2 business class tickets on an inaugural Emirates flight and the package also comes with 5 nights in a suite! Check it out as the bidding is still relatively low!

I first wrote about this last month and I said I wouldn’t be surprised if this package went for 300,000 SPG points. Well, right now, it is quite a bit below that! That doesn’t mean it won’t jump up in the final minutes (the auction gets extended 5 minutes when a bid is made within 5 minutes of the ending). But, if you wanted to maybe snag a nice deal on an inaugural route for Emirates – in business – with 5 nights in a suite at the other end, check it out!

This is not the first time you could redeem your Starpoints for a package that included an Emirates flight.

Here is what this Emirates business class package includes:

  • Two Emirates round-trip Business Class tickets on the inaugural flight from Dubai (UAE) to Santiago (Chile) (Departs July 5, 2018 – Returns July 11 , 2018 from and back to Dubai)
  • Emirates Business Class tickets include:
    • Chauffeur-drive service to and from the airport in Dubai; access to Business Class lounge at Dubai airport, priority check-in, boarding and baggage delivery
  • A 5-night stay in a one-bedroom Marvelous Suite for two at the W Santiago Hotel (Check-in July 5, 2018 – Check-out July 10, 2018 )
  • Complimentary daily buffet breakfast for two
  • Two complimentary drinks at Red2One rooftop bar
  • Complimentary dinner for two at KARAI by Mitsuharu
  • Airport transfer to and from W Santiago Hotel
  • Experience is for two people

What Is This Package Worth?

This is a huge package! Of course, we cannot put price tags on all the SPG packages but this one is much easier to do that with. While none of us would ever pay the prices below for this package, it is nice to see how much it is worth as a package:

  • Flights – $17,000
  • Suite – $2,775
  • Dinner – $200?
  • Airport transfer – $100?
  • Breakfast – included in the above rate
  • Total – $20,000

The Spectacular Suite at the W Santiago

Let’s assume a value of 4 cents per point (which is somewhat normal for SPG Moments packages) and we can see that it could cost as much as 500,000 Starpoints. At this point, it is much less than that!
