I had 130K until a week ago when I booked 3 nights for me and a friend at the Doubletree San Diego Downtown. We are going to be in town, visiting a friend and catching 3 out of 4 of the Phillies vs. Padres games.

Rebuilding as my company has an event in Austin in October that I'm hoping to cover with points.

I had over 600,000. I tend to earn and spend a decent amount of them throughout the year. I just booked a stay for around 240,000 so I'm below 400,000 right now.

A touch under 90,000 though I'm waiting for ~4,000 from last weekend to post. I'll be over 100,000 by the end of the month and probably around 150,000 by the end of the year.

My plan is to either use them for next year's Spring Break trip or keep them if I need to make an impromptu trip somewhere and hotels are very expensive in cash but can be had for a low points amount.

1,100,000 points - cant seem to use them as fast as i earn them. Probably should try harder before they are devalued even more!

I have just over 600,000 right now but I expect to be over 780,000 in a few months (since I have no immediate redemptions planned while I just applied for the 2nd [of 3 planned] Citi 60k HH Visa cards).

I have no particular plans to use them, except that I don't plan to use them on aspirational or luxury properties (unless I happen to end up going someplace where that's all there is). My last use was 2 nights at 20k each for an HGI in the Kansas City area. The HGI near Milwaukee (which is my next HHonors stay) had a great MVP rate, so I'm earning rather than burning there. And no place else on my upcoming Wisconsin vacation trip did using HH points make sense.

I'm keeping my balance high simply because I have no idea when I might need a bunch of HH points, and it's easier to earn them ahead of time (especially at this moment while the signup bonus is higher than normal).

Most of my points - those earned during work travel - go to my employers for future work travel. I've got about 2.5 million of my own. No time off to use them these days. Someday.

14,500 - I earn and burn at Category 1s and 2s on one-night stays, hence reaching Diamond within five months. My highest ever balance was 40,000 or so. I don't use credit cards.

I earn about 500k points per year, but I spend them as soon as I have enough for a vacation because I want to avoid taking a serious hit during the next devaluation round.

I'm at about 350K now, about to obtain Diamond.

I'm saving up for aspirational 10yr anniversary vacation next year. Site to be determined.


Looking for two weeks split over two top tier hotels.

Have 200k hyatt pts as well so will split between the two if needed.

I use mine when I can't get a decent discount rate (and usually I can).
