My Starpoints Redemption For The SPG Moment “2016 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix Qualifying Day With VIP Hospitality”

It is a known fact that Starpoints are very valuable and unique due to the wide range of possibilities with the rewards, One of the best uses of the SPG points is redeeming for SPG moments.

Early September,  while reviewing the SPG moments auctions list, I noticed that the highest bid for “2016 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix Qualifying Day With VIP Hospitality” is around 25K Starpoints and the similar events for other Grand Prix’s were sold for over 100k points in some instances. I was able to win the auction, even though there was some sudden competition during the last few minutes of closing.


Few days before the event, SPG representative contacted me to collect the details of the guests and the arrival information.  We were asked to collect the entry passes from the W Kuala Lumpur lobby on the day before the event.
