    United Redemption Discount!
    Now, through June 6, 2011, you can redeem 2,500 Choice Privileges points for 1,000 United Mileage Plus miles. That's a discount of 50% from the standard 5,000 Choice Privileges points.​

    For those who bought these in the Discover America promos, that would bring the cost down to about 1cpm.

    Hmmm....

    I haven't been informed by Choice about this very idea. :(

    I've already booked some upcoming stays (after my Breakers stay :cool: in June :eek:) with the points purchased from Discover America, but I can change that.

    Hmmm...

    I still think that I have greater value in using my CP points for hotels. My main exception would be if I were determined to use them for award flights in Business or First.

    UA does have one-way award tickets, which is a decent reason for keeping some miles in the program. I just made a redemption for a modest number of points acquired through DiscoverAmerica to be sent to UA - will be earning more CP points this week anyway.

    Thanks, this gives me something to do with the points I've been getting from TopGuest
