Got 29,449 point due to expire on 1st Feb.

Just going to shift 20,000 out to Avios.

Is there anything I can spend the remaining 9,449 miles on?

I assume you don't have any plans to stay at a Hilton property to hit 10K?

Do you have a HHonors CC, AMEX card that earns MR points or Citi ThankYou card?

For HHonors CC, you can try putting your spend on that card to earn enough points to hit 10K.

For AMEX, you can exchange 1K MR points for 1,500 HHonors points.

For Citi ThankYou, you can exchange 1K TY points for 500 HHonors points.

Don't have any of the products mentioned unfortunately.

Can I transfer under 10,000 points to another HH customer? Or can I buy a drink in a HH Hotel bar with them or something?

If they are going to expire because they are a year old, you can always buy poitns to restart the clock. Believe just $10 will do the trick. Then you'll keep them for another year.

How many Avios can you get for the 20k HH points?

You tactfully missed out on BA's 25% bonus on hotel point transfers - ended 13/Jan.

I'd just buy the minimum amount possible points to restart the clock.
