Similar to A3 here with different programs. When I need a personal flight or hotel, I use points whenever I can. But I just don't blow points on high tier hotels or taking extra trips just bc I have them. I look for value or when I have a reason (e.g. Romantic weekend or Nice hotel for mom/dad).

Not really P1, it's an easy transfer to SPG which are pretty valuable. IMO it's best to earn with SPG and redeem with Marriott.
