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!
