However, some people may value SPG points higher than AAdvantage miles. If you have a great idea about how to use your miles and get a better value than redeem for hotel stays, right now maybe the best time for you to convert your points. But we would highly suggest you to take a deep calculation about how many miles you need as American Airlines are requiring more miles for several routes now.
