Football fans know that we’ve reached that point in the season where it starts to become easier to determine which NFL teams still have a shot at reaching the ultimate game: The Super Bowl. And while the playoff teams are far from finalized and there’s still five weeks left in the regular season, one thing we do know is that Super Bowl LVI will take place Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022, in Los Angeles at SoFi stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
We also know that, as usual, Super Bowl tickets will be incredibly coveted and hard to find. It is perhaps the toughest ticket in sports … but it’s not impossible to get your hands on tickets to the big game. And if you’re a Marriott Bonvoy member with a lot of points stashed away, you’ve got a great chance to plan the ultimate sports bucket list trip.
The Marriott Bonvoy Moments program just kicked off a number of Super Bowl experiences for members, offering up unforgettable opportunities to not just enjoy the game, but to do so in style.

It’s important to note that Bonvoy Moments can be offered as packages or as auction items. With packages available for redemption, you can pay the assigned price in points; for experiences up for auction, you have to bid to win the package.
We counted six different types of Super Bowl LVI experiences being offered right now, all of them as auctions. Each package is up for auction until Dec. 10, and the bidding is already fierce.
Check out the bidding for a package that includes two tickets to enjoy the game in a stadium suite, hotel accommodations and a chance to attend the star-laden NFL Honors awards show during Super Bowl week. NFL Honors is like the Oscars of the NFL. The bidding is already up to 1.9 million points (which at .08 cents per point, according to TPG’s current valuation of Bonvoy points, equals $15,200).
There are other experiences that include tickets to the game, plus some other perks.
Another one that has sparked some strong bids is the package that includes getting to be on the field when they introduce the players from the teams facing off in the NFL’s championship game. The top bid at the moment has already cleared 1.6 million points (equivalent to $12,800 , according to TPG valuations).
Don’t be shocked to see these packages sell at a final cost well above those already-lofty numbers. The Super Bowl is a premium event where the majority of tickets go to the NFL’s promotional partners, which is why so few regular fans can get their hands on tickets.
It’s also worth keeping in mind that while it’s always good to try and get a solid return on your Bonvoy points, a Super Bowl experience is almost certainly not going to offer outsized value per point spent — at least not in a quantifiable way. It’s going to command a premium price because it’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime events that many sports fans — diehards and casual fans alike — dream of attending, whether their team makes it or not.
And given how hard it is to get your hands on tickets, if you’re lucky enough to have hoarded enough Bonvoy points to score one of these Moments, then value and good return on investment are likely worth throwing out the window.
Then it becomes, to quote Al Davis, the legendary former owner of the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, about one thing: “Just win, baby.”
