    The purchase and barter of miles and/or points is forbidden by most programs.

    Unless you can legitimately earn points quickly from paid stays that you need to make prior to your trip, I highly recommend not trying to earn points for the trip and just paying for it.

    What if someone wanted to hypothetically transfer 40,000 United miles to someone in exchange for 40,000 American miles? There are no possibilities?

    You can transfer, but UA let's you receive only up to 15K miles a year total from all transfers.. I forgot the cap on AA.

    Hmm. So that person would just be stuck with 40,000 United miles they can't use? The transfer ratios of points.com are just absurd so let's assume that option is out in our case study.

    Regardless, it remains common knowledge that points are regularly bartered and traded daily.

    1 - You need to learn to use a spell checker, it's difficult to read what you're really saying.
    2- Why not use the 40K UA miles for a ticket to the destination you have in mind, and pay for the Hilton rooms?

    You can do this through Points.com, but it will cost you an arm & a leg! :D

    Exactly, and that's precisely why someone shouldn't want to use Points.com. Is there really no other workaround?
