Personally, the only hotel programs that give you a decent value when transferring is Starwood Preferred Guest. For every 20,000 SPG points you can get 37,500 US Airways points – which is pretty awesome! This is also a great promotion is you have lose points laying around in random hotel programs that you have nothing to do with.

  • Valid between March 11-March 31, 2012
  • Bonus miles will post 6-8 weeks
  • The last date that activity from a qualify partner can be received by US Airways for bonus miles consideration is April 10, 2012
  • Only one hotel transfer is eligible for the promotion (although this part is slightly hazy per the T&C – in a week or two we’ll have a better idea what this means)
Thanks Lucky for sharing this promo!

    This seems good offer o consolidate points into miles. I was wondering if there is any way to convert Ultimate Rewards into dividend miles? Would love to hear about some creative way to get maximum value from ultimate rewards.

    @Vinay – Doesn’t seem like there’s a great path from UR to US DM. The Priority Club and Marriott ratios are down right pathetic. Best you can do is Hyatt and even that is a 2.5:1.5 ratio.

  • dealswelike said,

    @Vinay – I agree with infamousdx. You will lose some value, but you can transfer your Chase UR points to Hyatt and then from Hyatt to US Airways. With Amex MR as well, you can transfer to SPG (while taking advantage of the special 2:1 promotion) and then transfer from SPG to US Airways. Will put together a post for tomorrow con the best options for this,

  • Btime333 said,

    Shouldn’t the SPG bonus amount to 37,500 miles on transferring 20,000? 20,000 + 5,000 = 25,000 deposited miles x 1.5 = 37,500. Am I missing something?

  • dealswelike said,

    @Btime333 – Thanks for pointing out that miss on my part! Post has been updated.

  • Ric Garrido said,

    Why do you think SPG is the only decent transfer partner?

    Club Carlson, Wyndham and Marriott have better transfer rates when compared to the base rate points are earned in each hotel loyalty program.

  • Dutchguypdx said,

    Great deal ,I was 4000 SPG short to transfer 40.000 to get 75.000 miles. So I bought 4000 SPG for $140 , and received 75000 miles in my Usairways account .

    @Dutchguypdx – does this mean you have already received your bonus 25K from US Air. I’ve done the same as you but so far only have the 50K from SPG in my account!
