You can burn your miles via Rocketmiles for hotel stays.

Not great redemption rates ($170 night for 22K miles was the one we most recently booked) but it's better than letting them expire.

Used Chase UR points before Skypass stopped being a transfer partner for J on the 747-8 on the upper deck.

Definitely worth it imho.

With yourself and thousands of your closest friends.

Best place we found to enjoy the Cherry Blossoms was from Craftale (2nd floor restaurant overlooking the Meguro creek/riverwalk).
