Posting for a friend:

I have 1,000,000 SPG points and am looking for the best way to make use of them.  Any ideas?
Buy 25 toasters and sell them on eBay for $15 each.

That's a slow & torturous way to go through it.

Can we either delete this thread or move into JS? Preferably the former.  ::) :P

Who is willing to plan an awesome trip out for him, save him tens/hundreds of thousands of points for a percentage?  Or perhaps for all the points that you save him?

I have struggled with the same question, on a much smaller scale. For people that don't/can't travel often (stuck at home with X # of kids) I don't see any practical use for the points other than selling them to a broker.

It's still a lucrative hobby, but you don't get nearly the value that you could if you were using them to fly last minute business class seats.

Why does having a number of kids mean you need to be stuck at home 365 days a year?
