See NFL at Wembley by redeeming points with Marriott and SPG

Marriott Rewards and SPG are offering various packages for the upcoming NFL games at Wembley in October, both for auction and for immediate points purchase.

25,000 points gets you two premium tickets and an NFL gift – see here

Auction packages (some with no bids so far) get you two tickets and a chance to get onto the pitch before the game – see here

45,000 points gets you two VIP hospitality suite tickets – see here 

Auction packages (all with no bids as of last night) get you two VIP hospitality suite tickets and a chance to get onto the pitch before the game – see here   

There are similar packages on the SPG Moments site.  It isn’t clear if these use separate availability (in which case check both sites) or if they are effectively selling the same seats.

Based on Rob’s valuation of 0.5p per Marriott point, you are “paying” £225 for the hospitality package.  That is £112 per person for the ticket, gift and food and drink throughout the day, which sounds good to me.

  1. O/T. I upgraded from the Amex Gold Charge Card to Platinum in June this year. I had only held the Gold Card for approximately 6 months prior. At what stage do I pay the £450 yearly fee for the Amex Platinum?

    • I thought it was added to the first month’s bill, but that obviously hasn’t been case if you have not yet been charged. Maybe they took 20k points for you for the upgrade rather than £450. This would be a better deal for you anyway. Check your points statement.

      PS I have always found the Amex customer service staff excellent. All their contact numbers are listed under Contact Us on the website and are freephone numbers, too.

      • They don’t take 20K points…
        They used to give you 20K points if you spent a certain amount on the upgraded Plat card.

        However you could only upgrade to Plat Charge Card via this offer if you had a Gold Charge Card, not a Gold Credit Card.

        When upgrading via this offer, it seems some people get charged, others do not. if you don’t the first time round you would on your yearly anniversary.
