United Airlines MileagePlus Hotel Points To Miles Conversion Bonus Extra

Note that United Airlines will give 100% bonus for transfers from Club Carlson and undefined amount from Choice Privileges.

Eligible Conversion Partners:

Marriott Rewards

It doesn’t make any sense to convert Marriott Rewards points to airline miles without going to travel package route that can get you a 7 day reward at a hotel + 120,000 airline miles for 270,000 Marriott Rewards points. I recently wrote about Travel Packages here.

If you redeem a Travel Package at the 120,000 MileagePlus level, the Rewards Plus partnership will bump it up by 10% and then you will get the maximum 25,000 bonus miles under this offer for a total of 157,000 MileagePlus miles.

You can access Marriott’s hotel points to airline miles conversion page here and Travel Packages one here.

Hilton HHonors

The conversion rate of Hilton HHonors to United Airlines MileagePlus miles is 10:1. Doesn’t make any sense. You can access Hilton’s page for points to miles conversions here.

Wyndham Rewards

Wyndham Rewards devalued the points to miles conversion by 100% last year. You can now convert 5 points for an airline miles. You can access Wyndham Rewards web page for points to miles conversions here.

Choice Privileges

You can redeem 5,000 Choice Privileges points for 1,000 airline miles.You can access Choice’s web page for these conversions here.

Hyatt Gold Passport

You can convert Hyatt Gold Passport points to airline miles at the 2.5:1 ratio. Conversions of 50,000 points to miles receive 5,000 bonus miles. You can access Hyatt’s web page for conversions here.

Club Carlson

100,000 Club Carlson points converts to 10,000 airline miles that is extremely poor value.

IHG Rewards Club

You can redeem 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points to 2,000 United MileagePlus miles. You can access IHG’s web page for conversions here.

Shangri-la Golden Circle

You can convert Golden Circle points at 1:1 ratio starting at 2,500 minimum points. You can access Golden Circle’s page for conversions here.

SPG

Converting from SPG makes absolutely no sense at all because you would need 2 Starpoints per 1 United mile. You can convert your SPG Starpoints to Marriott Rewards points at 1:3 ratio. 90,000 Starpoints would yield 270,000 Marriott Rewards points that is enough for 152,000 United Airlines miles + one week at category 1 – 5 Marriott properties.

Conclusion

Considering how devalued most of these hotel points to airline miles conversion have become and the UA’s award chart changes, the best value is to use hotel points to actual hotel stays.

I am, however, big fan of using Marriott Rewards points for Travel Packages. Redeeming a 270,000 Marriott Rewards points travel package, would get you one week at Cat 1-5 hotels and 157,000 United miles. I will probably redeem another Travel Package during this promotion yet again.
