I have written plenty about SPG Moments, where you can redeem SPG points for special events such as Formula 1 races, MLB experience, luxury suite access to concerts. American Express is a little bit late to the party. But nonetheless, they are now officially in the game. Starting today and through September 28, you can redeem Membership Rewards points for special access to unforgettable and unique experiences, including sporting events, culinary tours, VIP concert tickets and more.
