    Hi Ben,
    You’ve helped me w bookings in the past – 4 lie flat seats to Hawaii over spring break rocked. My points w cc’s = MR (Amex gold and plat), Chase and SPG. A smattering of points on airlines – no status and limited biz travel. Lots of internet shopping and perfect credit score. We fly out of Boston. [B]Where should I focus my accumulation?[/B]

    Are BA, Singapore and Virgin Atlantic the transfer partners with my 3 cards? Does that make them good bets? So many considerations which is why I come to you. 🙂 Shooting for 600k points for 4 premium seats. Here are top picks on bucket list:
    [INDENT]Iceland to France on the list (friends with US Ambassador and want to visit while he has the gig).
    Australia or New Zealand/Fiji
    Dubai/South Africa
    England/Spain
    Amsterdam/Germany
    Adriatic Sea/Slovenia
    Galapagos Islands and South American
    Bareboat Charter in BVI’s – would not spend points here[/INDENT]

    Can you advise where my focus shoud be? I’m all over the map with pockets of points. Anything I should be doing right now with respect to buying or transfering points? No travel date set so time to make a goal and focus there.
    Many thanks to all who weigh-in.
    Cheers,
    Kim
