Here are the details of this SPG auction:

  • Photo with Dwyane Wade
  • Two team jerseys autographed by Dwyane Wade on-site
  • Two basketballs to be autographed by Dwyane Wade on-site

  • $150 credit for lunch or dinner at Boulud Sud at the JW Marriott Marquis
  • Two-night stay at the JW Marriott Marquis with King bed and city view (Check-in September 14, 2018 – Check-out September 16, 2018)
  • Experience is for two people
  • In Miami, FL

Auction Details:

  • End Date:  13 Aug 2018 – 03:30 PM EDT

  • Starting Bid: 15,000 Starpoints

  • Bid Increment:500 Starpoints

  • Current High Bid: 177,501 Starpoints


This is really quite a package for a NBA fan! Not only do you get to shoot around and get some teaching from Dwayne Wade for an hour, but you will also get some personally autographed gear.

Next, we move into the rest of the package. The two nights at the JW Marriott are a nice touch and come with nice credits – $300 to the spa and salon and a $150 credit for lunch or dinner.

Altogether, this is a nice package that will likely go for quite a bit more than its current 177,000 Starpoints. If you need more Starpoints, you can always transfer Marriott points at 3:1 or move Chase Ultimate Reward points to Marriott and then SPG.
