Because of our cancelled trip, which was booked in part with points that had been banked forward from 2018, I have 98 points that are going to expire and be lost as of 11/30.
I am trying to think of what to do with them:
- Rent them privately
- Rent them through a brokerage
- Book a room for the trip that is for my DD 16th birthday trip scheduled for October that is more than likely NOT going to happen (which would ultimately mean the points are lost when we don’t travel)
- Just let them go.
I think renting is not a big deal at this point. If for some reason my renter backed out, I would lose nothing because if I don’t rent them I would just lose the points anyway. Does that make sense? I would hold the funds until they checked in just in case, so that I would have the funds on hand to make whatever refund was agreed upon. I could make a little cash by renting them if all went well.
