    Received an email offering 20% bonus on hotel miles transfer up to 25,000 bonus miles. Was planning on doing UR>Hyatt>UA. Anyone see an issue here? There is a minimum 5k points transfer.

    Only issue is that it is still a pretty terrible value.

    Especially since UR go to UA 1:1 while Hyatt->UA is 1:2.5. So 50,000 UR would become 50,000 UA if going direct or, at best, 30k if you go via Hyatt.

    I had not looked at the hotel transfer rate just assuming it was 1:1. Thanks.

    The transfer is in the wrong direction for me. I would consider transferring miles to hotel points with a 20% bonus, and not the other way around...
