    I received a promo from Hilton Rewards that offers 1250 points for taking a survey. You listed a number of options to maintain points, but a survey was not on the list. Before I send info, is it legit?

    It looks like the calculation is off for United Miles. Shouldn’t 60,000 Marriott points give 27,500 United miles? The calculator is showing 27,000 miles (at least in my web browser).

    • Hi Will,

      You will receive 27,500 United miles. It displays as 22,000 miles initially. However, you’ll receive a 15,000 Marriott point bonus transferred to United at the 3:1.1 ratio, which means you’ll receive 5,500 miles on top of your 22,000 miles for a total of 27,500 United miles. Thanks for reading.

    What are my transfer options for 200,000 Avios

    • Hey Doug,

      Thanks for reading. This tool is designed for transfers from flexible rewards points to airline miles, not the other way around.

      Generally, these transfers can only be in one direction, so you’re mostly out of luck if you want something else from your Avios. You can redeem Avios for some fabulous airplane tickets though, even in business and first class! Find out more by reading this guide:

  4. Hi, what’s the best way to maximize my points transfer from Marriott Bonvoy and Ultimate Rewards to redeem for Cathay Pacific flights? It’s 3:1 ratio from Marriott Bonvoy to Cathay and there’s not a direct transfer option from Ultimate Rewards to Cathay. What would you recommend? Thank you!

  5. Hi,

    I’m planning to book business class flight lax to cdg using miles. I have 135K miles. I need 2 tickets so what is the most cost-effective approach?
    1) booking an upgradable economy ticket and then upgrading using miles?
    2) booking one business class and purchasing one business class ticket?

  6. Love the calculator. Thanks so much!

    FYI, the Citi transfer value to JetBlue needs to be updated. It is currently:
    Citi Chairman®, Prestige®, PremierSM Cardmembers

    1,000Points =1,000 TrueBlue points

    Citi ThankYou® Preferred, Citi Rewards+SM Cardmembers

    1,000Points = 800 TrueBlue points

    Thanks!
