For the past 5 years I have been a proud owner and a frequent user of a Northwest Airlines VISA card. I've been dutifully using the card to earn miles and after living in Minnesota and Seattle--both NWA hubs--I've earned a goodly number of miles, roughly 77,000.
So now that I have all these miles, what should I do with them? I'm trying to think of places that I could visit. I don't really want to use this (these) free ticket on something mundane, or something that would under normal circumstances be a small fee. So flying to Boston, or even Seattle seems pointless.
Assuming (unrealistically) that getting time off for travel wasn't a concern where should I go? Why should I go there? Would you want to come along? What would I do?
It costs 25,000 miles to travel in the lower 49 (not Hawaii)
35,000 to Hawaii
50,000 to Southern South America
50,000 to Europe
60,000 to Asia
