New (Better!) Way to Use Starwood Points to Fly United Airlines

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.

Starwood Adds Avianca as a New Airline Transfer Partner

Via Doctor of Credit, you can now transfer your Starwood points to Avianca miles at a 1:1 ratio.  This is great news for folks who book award flights on Star Alliance partner airlines, like Lufthansa or United Airlines!

And when you transfer Starwood points to Avianca, you’ll receive 5,000 bonus miles for every 20,000 points you transfer!

This is also terrific news because it shows the Starwood loyalty program is still operating independently following the closing of the merger with Marriott.

Considering the best-ever offer on the Barclaycard Arrival Plus card?  Don’t forget, you can usually only get 1 or 2 Barclaycards per year, so it’s worth comparing a few different Barclaycard cards, to make sure you’re getting the cards that make most sense for you.

For example, if you’re looking for flexibility, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus card is likely your best option.  But if JetBlue flies from your home airport, you might consider 1 of the Barclaycard JetBlue cards.  Or if you want to earn hotel points, you could apply for the Barclaycard Wyndham Rewards card.
