My Thank You Point Balance just crossed 180,000 and they start to expire in March of 2009. That won’t be a problem, as I’ll remember to use 90K of them in the proper manner (Business Class ticket, fixed flight option) by then. But when I use them, then the corresponding ticket is only good for one year. I still have $2,200 of UA vouchers that start to expire in May of 2009. This is a position I never thought I’d be in. I have too many $$$$ in available airline tickets. And Katy is about to cross 90K on her Thank You Point Account.
Help. I need to move some of that inventory, and more importantly, do I switch out to other credit cards?
A guy could have worse problems couldn’t he?
So do I go to Starwood, the old standby for 1 point per $? $3,000 spend for one night’s hotel stay? Rack up American Airlines miles and get closer to lifetime Platinum? I can’t choose a Hilton Amex card as I have not found their redemption’s to be that good overseas. I’m going to apply for two Bank of America US Airways cards but don’t care about adding miles to that account. Chase Choice points is offering 30K per card for both Business and personal cards, but I’ve tapped Chase fairly hard the last couple months.
Enough for now. It’s time for bed.
