How to redeem points which are about to expire?

I have some Emirates points (not a lot, only 1500) which will be expire in a few days.

I know that we can use points to upgrade our flight, book hotel, buy stuff from Emirate online store, etc. But none of these work in my case as the points are small and I have no flight or hotel booking in near future.

Also I can’t transform them to a friend as the points less than 2000 are non-transferable.

What do you suggest? Can I transfer it to my Qantas frequent fly program?

For such a small number of points it’s probably not worth trying to save them, just let them go.


You can’t transfer from Emirates to Qantas.
