For SPG 🐟s, how many points do you usually keep in your account? Trying to see if I'm saving mine too agressively or not enough...

No point in saving if they can devalue at any point. They're not going to increase the value ever. You're holding onto a depreciating asset.

Currently have ~120k, sounds like I need to consider spending some

60k but spending a lot soon

50k. I don't save them, I spend when I have occasion to.

I'll only spend them when I'm getting at least 2.5 cents of value per point. Currently have 680k

I spend points any time I need a personal room. But just bc I have a boatload of points doesn't mean I blow 80k per night when a perfectly suitable hotel is available for 15k
