United is offering a 25% bonus on transfers of hotel and car rental points into MileagePlus miles. The offer is valid for up to 20,000 bonus miles on transfers made through November 30, 2013.
United’s hotel and car transfer partners are here.
This bonus helps the anemic transfer rates for Starpoints to United miles (40,000 Starpoints normally yield 25,000 miles but would get you 31,250 under this offer), and Marriott transfer rates have improved slightly with the new United-Marriott tie up announced in July.
Nonetheless, this offer doesn’t really tempt me. At 100% bonus I’d even be moving over my Hyatt points which I much value and possibly Starpoints as well (since it would make Starwood transfers to United as generous as to American and US Airways). But 25% won’t move the needle for me. Will you jump on it?
