As travel enthusiasts, we all collect miles and points for different reasons.  Some of us save up for luxury vacations, First Class travel, and 5-star hotels.  Other folks prefer stretching their points, favoring coach flights, budget accommodations, and the best deals.

Others rather travel off the beaten path, staying away from chain hotels and looking for new adventures.  And some people save their points to share their love of travel with family and friends.

There’s no right or wrong way to use your miles or points!  Whether you use them for international or domestic travel, or even redeem them for gift cards if you won’t be traveling, the important thing is to do what you like with them!
