How Are You Going to Use Your GS Miles?

Now that GS 11 has officially begun, what is your goal for using the miles that you earn?

Mine is to round out enough miles for a trip for 2 in C to PEK next June.


Love to hear what others have set as their goal.

A

I have ZERO miles with US. Nada. Zilch. I do intend to fly them a lot more when I move down South next year.

That being said the plan is to build up my US account so the wifey and I can take a nice trip to Europe in a couple of years. Probably Greece.

Why wait a couple of years? Becuse I am burning through 600,000 AA miles next year on a family trip to Thailand.

Make sure to open a US account for the wife.

Having enough miles for two tickets at HIGH award rates might come in very handy.

Dunno. Still haven't used last year's!

I really wish I had been employed during the whole trackitback et al 150% bonus promo. I'd have a lot more miles than I do now!

one thing-they say hits may be removed if you break contract conditions
but if youve already used the miles surely they cant do anything

Only 120K? I thought transitting through BKK, you'd have to pay 160K -- how did you do it??
