Everything with one more so than others.

AA 92K
SPG 32K
VS 1.5K
NH/UA 0
MR < 1000

Used 180K NH miles to book F/C/Y tickets JFK-NRT in 2012 and 2013
Thinking of using miles + copay on AA miles.

I pretty much spend them as fast as I earn them, so very few.

Miles balance

Southwest: 43K
United: 12K
American: 3.5K
Delta: 0
USAIR: 0
Starwood: 14K

I am hoping for some bumps soon to earn some flight credits (and miles) on United -- but so far it looks like there are plenty of open seats on my upcoming flights.

SPG around 3,000,000 (lots of credit card use)
AA just under 1,000,000
DL fluctuates in six figures, and I HATE trying to use them on DL as DL always gouges so badly
The other 6-8 accounts have under 100,000

I find they are a lot easier to earn than to spend on routes and times that I am willing to fly. And I have to keep earning AA to earn my EXP, so flying with points on AA is a no no for me.

Oh, and half a million BA miles in a household account, so only me or spouse can use them and they never fly where I want to go. Ugly bitter story here.

DL: 680,000
US: 325,000
AA: 80,000
UA: 175,000
UR: 72,000
AMEX: 2,500

I won't bring myself to use DL miles outside of the low level, which is frustrating me, although I should be able to burn 80k on a Y/C Euro redemption for next week.

Hotels:
Hilton: 44,000
PC: 26,000
Hyatt: 56,000

I keep burning HH points for P+C, which is about the only good use of the program. PC points don't need to be stocked

Impressive haul on SPG.

AA award availability is so poor in past 1.5 years it is worse than when UA had StarNet blocking a few years ago. If not for CX J/F still easy to get, AA miles are worse than DL miles for where we want to go!

How you could not find usage for BA Avios? You dont need to fly BA at all. We are using their partners for shorthaul redemptions for any Intra-Continent flights - Intra-Asia use CX (not MH because MH charges much more YQ than CX), Intra-Europe use AB and NIKI, IB, and S7 inside Russia is great usage - LED-DME only 4500 Avios and $7.50 taxes. AY is good too but has to call to book in many cases. Intra-Australia you know that would be QF. Intra-Africa BA's sub ComAir saves you loads of money.

I think the best deal using Avios is intra-Japan. For example Japan Airlines between Tokyo and Osaka is only 4500 Avios, and $1.68 in taxes. ^
