United Airlines is offering a 25% bonus when you transfer your hotel points to United MileagePlus miles. The offer is limited to 20,000 bonus award miles and it ends November 30, 2016.
Here’s what you need to do to get the bonus
- Register for promo here
- Convert hotel points into MileagePlus miles by November 30, 2016
- Earn 25% bonus miles on all points-to-miles transfers, up to 20,000 bonus award miles
This is not really a great offer, unless you’re really in need of United miles. But, as frequentmiler points out in his post, there’s a good opportunity here if you were planning to take advantage of the Marriott’s Flight and Hotel Packages after the SPG merger.
I talked about that option here and now you can get an extra 20K United miles, the maximum bonus allowed under this promo.
The highlighted option here requires 270K Marriott points for 7 Night + 132K United Miles. That would trigger the 20K bonus, so you would get a total of 152K miles. You would need 90K SPG Starpoints for this, which is a lot, but you get tons of value out of them, especially if you’re in a United hub.
