Best points usage for the holidays? Argentina, New Zealand, or…?
Hi all, so I’m late for redeeming points this year but I figured I’d ask anyway. I’m trying to plan my holidays out but I’m not sure which place would be easiest to redeem points this late in the year. I have about 95k AA points, and 110k Citi points. Where would it be easiest for me to go? Someplace warm ideally.
I was thinking either New Zealand or Argentina, both because I have friends I can visit/stay with. I’m open to other countries though if I think they’re interesting enough. If it’s too late to book for this year I might just sit on the points and book Spain for next summer. I could always pay cash to visit friends in Baja, but that’s fairly close to me and I can do that at any time.
I’d say trying to find space to New Zealand over the holidays (NZ summer), 3 months out would be very difficult. Not impossible, but hard to bank on.
