I have 6,672 points that are going to expire soon - any idea what I can spend them on?

Apparently a one way trip on AA in the USA ia 7,500 points but I'm not planning on going to the US any time soon.

Awardwallet may earn you 5 AAdvantage miles very quickly giving you a further 18 months ...

eRewards is good for helping keep the balance alive too, just need to do a few surveys now and again to build up enough points to redeem for 500 miles.

I've left things to last minute again. Both my wifes and my miles are expiring in a few days. Not a lot of miles but don't want to lose them.

If I share 1,000 miles with my wife does that keep both accounts active for 18 months?

Thanks. USD30 to transfer. At least now I have another 18 months.

P.S. I'm sure I had some Agoda miles that should have posted but followed up late and they say the window to claim has expired. It was only 90 days or so. Most times they tell you to wait that long.

There is a link by @grussellt upthread in post #36.

You join Award wallet (free for basic), link your AA number and post a (relevant) comment to one of the blog threads

As mentioned it is Agoda PointsMax. You need to switch PointsMax on in your profile otherwise the airlines don't appear. Many cheap bookings come with 50-60 free AAdvantage miles. And you can then pay a higher room rate to earn more AAdvantage miles.

Anyone had any issues having comments posted on AwardWallet? I've done a few now and they don't seem to be getting published.

Never a problem ... last time in May.

I do have a grandfathered paid membership - have been with them for years.
