For most people, the end of summer means back-to-school shopping and a final weekend at the beach, but those in the know suddenly become massive tennis fans. That’s because one of the top social sporting events of the year comes to New York’s Aurthur Ashe Stadium at the end of August: The US Open.

Tennis, anyone?
Tennis, anyone?

Everyone’s hustling for a seat at the best matches, but if you’re in the Starwood Preferred Guest program, SPG Moments has some fun in store for you. You can now redeem Starpoints for US Open experiences like SPG Luxury Suite access, courtside seats, a pro-tennis clinic and more. And in an interesting twist, there are also auctions for the big-ticket experiences.

You can bid on luxury suites and behind the scenes access through SPG Moments.

Starpoints are the most valuable loyalty currency out there (currently listed at 2.4 cents apiece in TPG’s latest valuations). While you can get great value out of these points with hotel stays and transfers to airline partners, SPG Moments offers some pretty unique and memorable ways to redeem.

If you’re saving your points for actual travel, then these US Open options might not be for you. However, if you’re a fan of the game and have points to spare, then this could be your chance to get out of the nosebleed seats and cheer on your favorites from courtside.

At the time of writing, the following SPG Moments (and more!) are still up for grabs. Good luck!
