    Hello All,

    I have various points and glad to own these, but probably should start spending it somehow… I’m not planning much personal travel in the near future (may consider vacation trip in Europe – I reside in Europe), probably cash/gift card is appreciated the most. Can you advise what would make the most sense? I have the following:
    Miles and more 100000
    Hyatt 6000
    Hilton 90000 – last activity March 2017, but points still shows (expires in 12 month?)
    Marriott 110000
    BA 150000
    Air France 140000

    Thanks for your help,

    Miles & More would be good for Lufthansa First. I;m not sure if you need to me an M&M elite member to access LH F space earlier than partners though.

    With Hyatt you could do a free night at a Category 1 hotel, or points and cash for Categories 1-3.

    You might be able to get 1 night at a top tier Hilton property, or spread out the points across a few nights at a lower tier property.

    I’d consider using AF points to fly business class to Asia and then using BA Avios to fly Cathay First out of HK, as flights out of HK cant have fuel surcharges.
