I used my last 60,000 (AN) Ansett points for a J return on SQ (ADL - SIN) in the weeks before they went kaput.
They were amassed from credit card and flights.
Still feel a bit bad that maybe I helped AN go dry financially.
Flew to Singapore end of Sep 2001, and back early Oct that same year, few weeks before AN mark 1 went belly up.
These days, once I hit 5,000 Qpoints or enough VFF for a P+P and have a flight plan in mind, I use the points for each program ASAP.
My brother lost at least 150,000 AN points as he didn't get the chance to utilise them.

I use the as soon as I have enough to get flights, earlier in 2017 I went business class from Gold Coast to Sydney to Bangkok to Dubai to Barcelona and back the same way. Had to book them as multi-city itinerary but when the stopover is less than 24 hours it doesn't increase the miles you need. Cost about 280,000 points as I did stop In Bangkok for 5 days. Got all the inclusions, chauffer and the Dubai overnight stay at the Le Meridien Hotel. Have a similar trip in business class for next May into Paris and out if Amsterdam. Fairly easy to get flights on Emirates operated flights but virtually impossible to get on Qantas planes.
