Are you holding on to a stock pile of points or miles and want to use them for unique experiences? Here is a list of various programs where you can bid or purchase experiences ranging from a concert to a sporting event to various tours. There may be some great redemptions to take advantage of here.
There are a variety of sport, culinary, and entertainment moments to either bid or purchase. I see some great ALCS & World Series tickets here! Remember Marriott points can be transferred to SPG at 3:1 so you can easily combine these points if you see an auction you want to bid on. On a side note, SPG points are valuable currency because they can be transferred to a variety of airlines as well.
There are different culinary, lifestyle, sport and entertainment packages to bid on and appear to be different than SPG moments. Again you can transfer SPG points to Marriott at a ratio of 1:3.
There seems to be very minimal options to bid on but you may find something that will interest you.
Hilton has a variety of music, sports, and cultural experiences to splurge on. If you are short on points, American Express Membership Rewards transfers to Hilton at a ration of 1:1.5 in increments of 1k.
You can bid on travel and sport experiences with your United miles. These are some great auctions for the avid sports fan and would make for some fun memories.
Since the holidays are coming up, these experiences could make great presents if you have some miles or points to burn. If there are any other points auctions I’ve missed, let me know in the comments.
