Does anyone know the record for the highest amount of points accumulated in one frequent flyer account? Just out of curiosity. Both my QF and VA accounts ticked over the six figure mark a week or so ago, so I'll have to burn a few points soon.

ff points are not an investment and will only go down in value with time. Hence I use mine as soon as possible / practicable rather than saving. I have rarely found availabilityof 4 seats in J and never in F, hence why save them up for a trip I will never be able to use ( I use my FF points for leisure travel with the family, work travel I pay for)

Absolutely. Points are not money. You could wake up one day to learn VA or QF have altered redemption rates or introduced some other diabolical plan to milk FFs a bit more. We use our points when the balance is high enough to cover the next domestic trip in J.

Totally agree – with 6 digit number I would be really itchy to burn them ASAP – try to do family upgrade for example. Personally I burn them as soon as they available – as been said they will not appreciate in value, but changing T&C may render you can do one economy flight instead of 4 business. It is not true that classic awards do not exists – they do, but difficult to get – you have to be flexible and persistent. Another option is anyseat award, but rates there rather diabolical.
Thanks for the response! Although, that's more an answer to the question, 'What quantity fo points should I accumulate before feeling the need to start burning some?'
Although, that is probably a better question.
