Last season, a father together with his son visited all the NFL stadiums with veterans (read the article). They budgeted $25,000 for all expenses for them and the veterans.

You could do it for much cheaper using miles and points for the hotels and airfare. I know, most people will be happy to just go to one or two games. This post will focus on using Starwood points since its my favorite hotel brand and they have an awesome promotion right now (until 9/3/13). If you don’t have many Starwood Hotel points, I recently wrote about a promotion for the Starwood American Express to get 30k25k (as of 9/4/13) points (or 60k50k points if you sign up for the personal and business cards). Click HERE to read my recent post where all the details are explained.

Starwood is running an offer for 30k (update as of 9/4/13: now 25k) points if you sign up for their credit card. Read my post – where I explain how good this offer is and that it hasn’t been offered since last year (usually they give 10k to 25k points).

Now that you have a plan to get some miles, here is how you can use them. I’ve found some good Starwood hotels near each stadium and the prices you can expect. I’m using October 20th, 2013 (Sunday) plus or minus a week in my examples. These are the costs for 1 night stay. USUALLY THE CASH AND POINTS WILL BE THE BEST USE OF POINTS. I try to get 2.5 cents per point or more. Most of these areas will have several options of hotels, depending on your tastes and if you want to splurge. There are many airport hotel options which are often cheaper but I’ve excluded those. You can go to www.spg.com to search for yourself. Also, to many of you who have asked me where you can go with all these Starwood points, here are some good examples of how far your points will go.
