Anyone here with previous experience / has considered using Points.Com to get ride of useless FlyingBlue miles and exchanging them for something better? Maybe AA miles or UA miles?
Have loads of FB miles that I would like to get ride off in a meaningful way.
Any advice, tip, trap to avoid? What's the spread/fee like for this service?
Is it OK with the T&C of FBlue?

Why don't you read up on the terms and conditions? :) Should answer all your questions.
Just out of curiosity, why do you find FB miles useless? They are, for example, very useful for business class trips between EU and US :)
"They are, for example, very useful for business class trips between EU and US"
Because I have no use for business class seats...
With AF, I always have to fork a boatload of $ to get an award. If I could just exchange them with AA, UA, AS or FL, I could basically fly for miles plus tax.
I understand some might be interested in FB miles. I am not. That's why I find the concept of a mile exchange platform great. I am just asking for some past experience because I am pretty sure I am not the only one having come to this conclusion.
And so far, I find the fees at point.com far too high. Just wondering if someone has found a clever way to use the system or a better exchange platform.
