What to do with 14K miles.

I have 14,000 miles that expire soon. Realistically, I won't be flying before the miles expire. Therefore, I can't extend the validity of them. What can be done with the miles? Can I book s hotel with the miles? Can the miles be used for anything?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Depends where you are located , you can find awards tickets for less than 20k miles R/T . Maybe buy some extra miles and then book something

Booking hotel is not really worth the amount of miles and besides that it wont probably be enough

Otherwise you can give them to charity

Exchange for a Delta or WestJet flight, it shall cost from 8.5k to 12.5k points.

Or transfer them into Accor points, bad value though, will only become 3000 Accor points = 66 USD...

I think they meant the airline rather than just a ticket
