I was supposed to go to Las Vegas at the end of the month so I as I wrote about last week, I was looking into what events were available through SPG Moments since they often offer exclusive access to otherwise sold-out or hard-to-buy tickets as well as extra add-ons beyond the price of a ticket alone.

I was planning on attending the Shania concert in Vegas.
I was planning on attending the Shania concert in Vegas.

One of the experiences I was interested in was the Shania Twain concert at Caesar’s Palace – part of SPG’s new partnership with Caesar’s – and since I was going to be in Vegas, I decided to purchase it for 10,000 Starpoints. Now, normally I use my Starpoints for hotel redemptions and Cash & Points awards where I’m sure to get a decent value per point, but looking into the ticket prices on Ticketmaster, each seat would have cost $250, so getting $500 in value from 10,000 Starpoints was a decent deal in my book.

Now the bad news – it turns out I’m not going to Vegas! But that’s good news for all of you because I’ll be giving away my SPG Moments package for this week’s reader giveaway. The prize is a pair of tickets in premium seats at Shania Twain: Still the One at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace on Saturday, February 1 at 7:30pm.

To enter, leave a comment on this post by 5:00pm ET tomorrow, Wednesday, January 29, telling me your favorite Shania Twain song and why and Team TPG and I will pick a winner by the end of the day so you have time to make arrangements in Vegas.

This is probably a good prize for someone based in the area, but remember, now that Starwood has its partnership with Caesars, Hyatt has one with MGM Resorts, and you can earn/redeem Marriott points at the Cosmopolitan, there are more opportunities than ever to earn and burn points in Sin City – so you should have some good options whether you want to earn points on a stay or redeem them for award nights.

I can’t wait to see your entries – and good luck, y’all!
