    I just booked a room for my wife and my 25th anniversary (those of you who have met me know what a challenge this was for her) and my HHonors account is at a new low, 2391 points.

    Have you ever drained yours lower than that?

    Hope you have a wonderful anniversary!! :)
    I cannot get either my HH or AE balances less that around 750K ... just too much accumulation :)

    Actually, yes, I have drained lower than that.

    In fact, I just checked my balance now, having redeemed recently and just read your post.

    HHonors Gold
    2,286 TOTAL POINTS

    It's odd. With savings, money and bank accounts I am superconservative and keep healthy dollar balances. With travel points, however, it's totally different -- I redeem often and basically say take the travel when you can. My AA balance is significantly larger than this, but even there I redeem often compared to some of you on here.

    Happy Anniversary.

    To Hilton's credit, when I told the woman why we were going, she immediately upgraded us to a suite. I have not told my wife yet. (Waldorf Astoria, Key West)

    I had about about 10,000 BMI miles that I used part for a 1 way Award + Cash in Business and another one way economy award plus cash and ended up with 311 points at the end, I didn't bother converting the balance to British Airways Executive Club.
