New SPG Auction For Private Jet Flight, Launch of Brand New Suite, and More

Written by Charlie

A new, unique way to use your SPG points is here – fly on a private jet and attend a launch of a newly renovated suite. Plus, do it with a celebrity.

An interesting SPG Moments auction popped up today that has some interesting value in the experiences department. However, because Jamie Foxx is part of the experience, I would imagine there will be some that will pay a lot of Starpoints for this auction.

Here are the details about what is included with this SPG moments auction:

  • Access for two (2) to a brunch party with Jamie Foxx at the W New York – Times Square on Friday, 15 September 2017
  • Access for two (2) to a Jetlux private jet flight with Jamie Foxx from New York to Boston
  • Access for two (2) to the W Boston Extreme WOW Suite Launch
  • Access for two (2) to a Jetlux private jet flight from Boston to New York

SPG will be launching a renovated suite, the Extreme WOW suite, at the W Boston during this timeframe. I imagine, from the name of the suite and that they got a celebrity to be in attendance, that this is going to be quite the amazing suite – and probably with a price to match! It already looked pretty amazing before the renovation.

Here are the details for the auction itself:

  • End Date: 1 Sep 2017 – 11:00 AM EDT
  • Starting Bid: 1,000 Starpoints
  • Bid Increment: 500 Starpoints
  • Current High Bid:  31,000 Starpoints (at the time of this post)

I would definitely be interested in it if it didn’t include a celebrity. 🙂 The reason for that is that I think the inclusion of one will jack up the price over what the experience itself would go for, and I would highly value the hotel suite reveal and flights for themselves.

Do you plan on bidding?
