With the new way to transfer points between Starwood and Marriott accounts, folks can get a better ratio converting Starwood points to United Airlines miles by first transferring to Marriott points.
For example, if you transfer 10,000 Starwood points directly to United Airlines, you’ll only get 5,000 United Airlines miles because there’s a 2:1 ratio.
Instead, you could convert 10,000 Starwood points to 30,000 Marriott points (1:3 ratio). Then, transfer the Marriott points to United Airlines and you’ll get a much better deal for your points.
Now You Can Get a Better Ratio Converting Starwood Points to United Airlines Miles!
I’ll explain the math behind the points conversion and why United Airlines miles are great for Big Travel!

Via View From the Wing, there are several non-stop, round-trip Business Class award seats on United Airlines flights between San Francisco to Auckland in July and August 2017.
These seats are usually difficult to find. So this is great news if you’ve been wanting to explore the Southern Hemisphere or Pacific Islands!
In many cases, there are 4 or more award seats available on the same flight. This means you can bring family or friends along for a trip to New Zealand!
