Best Non-Flight Use of TrueBlue Points?

For a long time, I was a Boston resident, and have built up a non-trivial but not massive number of points (~65,000). Since then, I've moved to the other coast, where JetBlue flights are few and far between, and where earning credit on Alaska or Delta are slightly higher priorities.

So I'm trying to empty out my points balance, but there seem to be very limited ways of transferring points *out* of TrueBlue. Anyone have suggestions?

Wait until you need a trip back east and use the points for that ticket. They don't expire so no need to empty the account prematurely.

65k isn't that much... I just burned 140k for 2 tickets in Mint RT.

But total frequencies on the west coast is decreasing.

It is ~$800+ in travel. It is plenty to be concerned about using.

I agree that it's a lot of $s in travel, the point I was trying to make is that it's not like you have 2 million miles and are looking for something other than flights to use them on.

Indeed...you dismissed someone's reasonable concerns as unimportant. That wasn't very good.
