How Do You Convert Miles & Points From Other Programs to United Airlines Miles?

Million Mile Secrets reader Teri commented:

We want to visit Italy and France in September 2017 for our 30th anniversary.  And because we’ve already saved some United Airlines miles, we plan to fly with United Airlines or a Star Alliance partner.

But we’ve also earned miles & points with our Chase Sapphire Preferred and Capital One Venture cards.

So, how do we combine the miles & points from these different programs in order to book our award tickets with United Airlines miles?  And are there any other cards you’d recommend we get?

When you have an American Express Delta card you can book Delta flights with miles WITHOUT having to search for award tickets by using Pay With Miles.  It’s simple!

I’ll help you decide which method makes more sense for the kind of travel you’d like to do.

Because this is a great time to think about Delta miles seeing as the sign-up bonuses on the American Express Gold Delta SkyMiles personal and small business cards, and American Express Platinum personal and small business cards are increased until July 6, 2016.
