Which account to put 13K miles?

Seldom fly Skyteam and have some upcoming flights with a Skyteam airline as there is no One World service to the destinations I'll be visiting.

The Skyteam flights are booked in discounted Y. The total number of miles flown are just over 13,000 is there any partner airlines where I can redeem an award for 13,000 miles? Not necessarily a flight award, don't mind using them for a hotel or something useful. Realistically, it'll be eons before I fly Skyteam again.

Wondering which Skyteam airline is best for banking these miles.

Any advice will appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

What do you want to use these ff miles for?
FF miles are not equal to earn or burn. In discounted Y you may not get 1 ff mile per mile flown.
15,000 miles in 1 ffp may get you a longer award flight than 10,000 ff miles in another ffp. And them there is cash surcharges
Expiry can be different.
Airlines have alliance & non alliance partner's. A non alliance partner may be better
What airlines - route?

It depends greatly on the booking/fare class. Discounted economy generally does not earn 100% miles, thus you may only gain (just a guess) 25% or ~3K miles. Which could (barely) be enough for an upgrade to economy comfort on eg an intra-European KLM flight.
