I know I know, there are many worse problems to have in life than too many points. But with the flood of devaluations that keep coming month after month from airlines and hotels alike this is becoming an issue for me. My Award Wallet not including my totals from Delta (we all know Delta blocks real time Delta tracking) I am still over 2 million points and that is after this week’s ¼ million point spend!
The next issue is it’s just about time for Lisa’s next round of cards and that will add to this total. Plus I have later this month 20K+ of mileage running that will add over 50k Skymiles on top of that. I already have my Grand Cayman trip this winter booked and paid for with Hawaiian points for my ride on Delta down to the island (no longer a redemption option btw) and I used another ¼ million Ultimate Rewards points to pay for the two weeks at the resort + diving included as well (Thank you so much Chase INK Plus and INK Bold and Sapphire Preferred cards)!
So you see my problem. Granted this is sorta a good problem to have but I just need more time. I really want to spend my AA/US AIR & UA points for Sweden trips but Delta points are so much better and, for me who knows the program, of much greater value with my Diamond status. I mean to tinker all I want and have stopovers along the way to make two vacations out of one makes Skymiles worth just so much more to me that the other airlines points!
I know, this is a ridiculous rant about a problem that is not really a problem at all but I would love to know if you too find the points coming in faster than you can reasonably spend them. Do you worry about your point “fortune” becoming “Enron stock” overnight (silly but you get my point).
Ah well, I guess I will get back to checking for some mileage runs for next year – René
PS – I have 10 AwardWallet Plus 6 month upgrade codes.
