    Ok I feel like I've inundated you everyone here do one last breakdown and request for assistance.

    What I have:

    Marriott: 50,000

    UR: 52,000 50k coming so 102,000 total

    United: 40k now 100k coming in few days and 50k more in a month so total about 200k

    SPG: 75000

    Amex gold: 75k

    And for those who haven't seen, I'm trying to fly from Chicago to Rome/Venice preferably in business class in mid October.

    Thank you once again.

    100K UA miles is all you need for a round-trip Business award to Europe. I would leave the UR points as is and use the SPG points for C+P awards.

    The SPG doesn't have an option of C+P and I only have enough spg for 3 nights...I need at least another 3-4 with other points.

    Then you can use the UR points to transfer to Hyatt and redeem

    I don't believe there are any Hyatts in Rome or Venice.
