United has brought back their bonus for converting hotel points to MileagePlus miles. The bonus once again is 30% and you are allowed to earn a maximum of 25,000 bonus miles across all your transfers.
In most cases the only transfer makes sense is converting Marriott Bonvoy points since they transfer at a 3 to 1 ratio. You’ll also want to transfer 60,000 point batches to ensure you get the 10,000 bonus miles from Marriott. For example, if you do transfer 60,000 Bonvoy Points to MileagePlus Miles you would end up with 30,000 miles (20,000 miles from the 3:1 ratio plus the 10,000 bonus miles) and then with this promotion you’ll receive an additional 9,000 miles for a total of 39,000 MileagePlus Miles.
All other hotel programs have pretty terrible conversion ratios however if you have orphaned points in those programs that you know you’ll never use, by all means convert them over so you can get some sort of value from them. In fact there is a 100% bonus when converting Choice Privileges points to United until Oct 15 which appears to be from Choice so those transfers may count towards this bonus as well.
