Default Jack vs. jack stand locations

I have seen a lot of threads address the jack point locations, but haven't seen any discuss where to put jackstands. I realize the PT has four jack locations on the car but my question pertains to placement of jackstands. If you jack at the jack point you cannot place a stand in the same spot. Should you jack slightly away from the suggested location and add jackstand to exact loaction or vise versa.

I jack away from the point and place the stands at the jack point. Have done it that way with all 3 PT's.
