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!

- 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

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
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!
