From now until November 30, you can get a 25% bonus when you transfer hotel points into United MileagePlus.

United lets you transfer from these mileage programs:

  • Starwood Preferred Guest (2 points = 1 mile)
  • Hilton HHonors (10 points = 1 mile)
  • IHG Club (5 points = 1 mile)
  • Club Carlson: (10 points = 1 mile)
  • Hyatt Gold Passport (2.5 points = 1 mile; extra 5,000 mile bonus when you convert 50,000 points)
  • Choice Privileges: (5 points = 1 mile)
  • Wyndham Rewards: (5 points = 1 mile)

But the most lucrative option is to transfer from Marriott Rewards, and since Starwood points now convert into Marriott points at a 3x rate, you can get up to 1.7 United miles for each Starwood point if you convert to Marriott, then take advantage of the most lucrative transfer options to United MileagePlus.

Air + Hotel packages that give you 7 free nights at a Category 1 – 5 Marriott hotel will get you the most United miles from your Marriott points, and you don’t have to use the free nights at the same time as your flight.

There’s a cap of 20,000 bonus award miles, so you can get the max bonus on up to 80,000 miles earned.
