    after being burned by devaluations of some sort by every mileage or points program I have ever joined :eek:

    spend / use your points or miles ASAP, no excuses

    I'm rarely in favor of buying points unless there's an immediate defined need. That being said, if you're earning points through smart spend and saving up for a trip in the future, I'm not the type to think you should burn up a big balance just because a devaluation is/may be coming. There will be a "next" devaluation. That's a pretty good reason not to speculate by purchasing points.

    After 40 years plus, I find many points are given away, one way or another,

    I do not not mind giving them to friends,

    Most of them are pretty easy to gain, I could not always say this,

    The game of gaining miles is a habit, sharing them us kind of fun..

    I am happy to buy points to meet an immediate transaction for a flight upgrade or reward stay

    however I will definitely will not "sit on" a big pile of points or miles though :eek: will upgrade or book a stay for a loved one, if I do have a personal use
