SPG’s “Hear The Music” promotion with Ticketmaster makes a return in 2014.
You can earn $50 Ticketmaster cash code for every two eligible nights booked using iPhone, iPad or Android apps and consumed between April 3 and May 31, 2014.
EDIT: Seems that this Ticketmaster Cash Code offer is only available for SPG accounts that are registered in the United States.
SPG also has new Moments with number of artist that you can bid/purchase using Starpoints around the world.
You can access SPG’s web page for this promotion that requires registration here.
This Ticketmaster Cash Code promo should be open for all. There is a separate sweepstakes for cash codes that is only open for SPG members in the 50 US States, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
SPG has teamed up with number of artists for Moments that you can bid/purchase using Starpoints here.
This has been popular promotion in previous years that you can combine with other overlapping SPG promos. I have not received any negative feedback that these Ticketmaster cash codes would have been difficult to use during the previous promotions.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
