Yossi Goldstein asks via DDFB what he should do with his accumulated points if he wants to close his Business Platinum Card. If you have short-term travel plans that’s an easy question. Just figure out which airline will charge the fewest miles for your trip. But without travel plans, I hate preemptively transferring bank points into airline miles or hotel points.

Hundreds of frequent flyer enthusiasts from forums like Flyertalk and Milepoint get together and fly around the world together and meet with various airline and hotel executives. Star of course refers to Star Alliance. A DO (pronounced like the word do or due) is simply a get-together while a MegaDo is a really big get together.
