I would just keep them since they don’t expire anymore... much better value redeeming flights

Sounds like a good excuse to plan a big personal trip... like international first class.

Right, but as mentioned no personal trips upcoming. Just came back from a miles trip to hawaii and europe.

To be clear, I know keeping them is the best option but I’d rather use at the moment to buy a few big ticket items

If you have a upgrade certificate, I can buy it from you.

I have 500+ plus points...

Jesus. Where are your clients/you?

What type of consulting projects? I’d love to start doing international travel

Save it dude. I get the big token but makes no sense to trade for something that is lower in $/mile value. You are doing what you would tell your clients not to do if they had the same question! You are a mgt consultant!

Thanks guys. As mentioned above I’m aware that keeping is the best value but that wasn’t the question. I’m trying to get some cash together so the question is about potential ways to cash out

Sell them to someone would be the best bet. Looks like they have an option to buy giftcards. https://www.united.com/ual/en/us/fly/mileageplus/awards.html

You can try selling them to a mileage broker. It’s not exactly within your terms of service, but it will get you the most cash.

How do you cope with being laid off? I’ve changed jobs many times, even moved to the other side of the world without job and work visa (it all worked out fine) and after I left my previous job I took 6 months off to travel before I started this job at a network agency I loved. I always had confidence. This is the first time I feel so heartbroken and almost grieving about it, and even the quality of work sucked (but the network and people are good). How do I get over this? I want myself back!

Has anyone experienced USCIS just approving EAD and not I-485 (GC) though you are current in final action with your priority date.

If so, how long did it take for you to get your GC? This is the notorious Texas Service Center, by the way.
