20% Bonus MileagePlus Miles When You Convert Hotel Points

onvert those unused frequent guest loyalty program points of lodging companies into MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program miles towards award travel on United Airlines — and receive a bonus of 20 percent on all conversions worth 5,000 MileagePlus miles or more with a maximum limit of 25,000 bonus MileagePlus miles.

Simply register for this promotion and then convert your points by Sunday, November 30, 2014 from any combination of the following eight frequent guest loyalty program partners of United Airlines:

  • Hilton HHonors
  • Hyatt Gold Passport
  • Club Carlson
  • Marriott Rewards
  • Wyndham Rewards
  • InterContinental Hotels Group Rewards Club
  • Choice Privileges
  • Golden Circle


If you have what are known as “orphan” points in your accounts of any of the frequent guest loyalty program partners listed above and also plan to fly as a passenger on United Airlines — or a partner airline which is a member of Star Alliance — in the future, this could be a potentially good way to use those points.

This offer ends on Friday, December 5, 2014. Bonus MileagePlus miles will be credited into your MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program account on or before January 31, 2015.

Other terms and conditions apply.

    I plan to transfer some ultimate points to united 1:1 ratio. However now with this promotion how about if I transfer those ultimate points to Hyatt and then transfer to United getting a better ratio? Will that work?

    @Caveman. Oh no.. you don’t want to do that.
    Conversion rate for Hyatt to United is 5 to 2. So 50000 Hyatt GP points for 20000 United miles.. so even with 20% bump it’s bad deal. You’ll want to go straight from Chase UR to United at 1 to 1 basis.
