What would you do with 1,000,000 Marriott Points?

    Donate them to military families on leave with their soldiers, sailors or airmen and women.

    I have almost 4,000,000 currently (I've used about a million over the years), and I plan to use them for travel when I retire.  However, a case can be made that the longer you hold them, the less they are worth.  I have several MVCI timeshares and my plan is to use my points to get me there when my income wouldn't support that.

    I agree--the continued value of these points is in their use:  the corporation could decide they are a liability and discontinue the program (especially if another lodging chain made the first move). The fine print says they need to give 6 months notice before elimination of the program.  I too have used nearly a million of my points and enjoyed the time spent not spending money as I did.

    The thing is, as a saver, it's hard to use 'em all up. I like the idea of using 150,000 or so each year to take a trip that may not have been so easy without the benefit of the points. Giving some away ...always nice.

    I use them up as fast as I can!

     

    I think we will have a "Tax" issue with all of the new government needs!

     

    The airlines will be the first to drop FF programs.  I now Budget dropped theirs, and I no longer rent their cars.

    First I would be SO happy!    Save, share and take my mom a wonderful vacation.

    We lost my dad to a brain tumor, glioblastoma and it would be a fantastic gift to give.
