Via Frequent Miler, you can earn a 25% bonus when you transfer hotel points to United Airlines through November 30, 2016.
In most cases, this is not a great deal because of the unfavorable transfer ratios. But it’s a terrific deal if you book a Marriott Hotel + Air package, especially if you first transfer Starwood points to Marriott.
This promotion can also be a way to convert excess hotel points that you wouldn’t otherwise use.
For a Limited Time, Earn Up to 20,000 Bonus United Airlines Miles When You Convert Hotel Points
I’ll explain more about this deal!

That’s right! If you want to redeem Chase points to book travel through Chase, your points are worth different rates depending on which card they’re tied to.
So if you have more than one Chase Ultimate Rewards card, you’ll get the best deal by moving your points to the right card.

The Chase Ink Plus and The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN are 2 small business credit cards that earn flexible points. Transferable points are my favorite because you’ll have many options for Big Travel With Small Money.
And both small business cards offer a sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements. Plus, you can accumulate bonus points in certain spending categories. You’ll also get certain purchase protections while traveling and shopping when you pay with either card.
Earning Transferable Points on Small Business Cards Like the Chase Ink Plus or AMEX Business Gold Can Help You Get Big Travel! Like Flying Business Class to or From Tahiti!
I’ll compare the perks of both cards. And explain which card might work best for your small business!
