i don't get to take frequent long vacations (generally one max per year if that), so i stockpile and splurge on J or F tickets when planning those trips. devaluations are rarely without warning. UA gave people three months to book tickets before the last devaluation took effect. UR is harder because there's so many places they can go.What's everyone's philosophy on earn/burn vs. stockpiling? I know it's risky business for straight airline miles cards given the frequent devaluations or outright elimination of charts (looking at you, Delta), but for things like UR that seem to carry a steadier value I tend to hang on to them longer before putting them to use. I'm gonna take stock of my points balances come Jan 1 and figure out how much I'm actually picking up quarterly, but I've yet to drop any significant chunk of points on anything big (just a short notice domestic flight here or there).
