    Hi there,
    I just hit 100$ on my erewards. I want to redeem it and i have these options.
    4000 Priority Club
    7000 Hilton HHonors
    2000 Southwest
    500 Hertz Points

    If I had the option of United or US Airways I would do that in a heartbeat. However these are not options in this particular account.

    Which of these redemptions has higher theoretical value?
    Appreciate the help.

    Thanks.

    From my review of the program, it seems that Hertz is by far the best possible partner, almost allowing you to realize a value equal to the nominal value of the eRewards (vs. Southwest for example where you can buy 2,000 points for $50, half the nominal value of the eRewards).

    Interesting it wont allow USair, I have 4 eRewards accounts with different email addresses:eek: . They all show USair most of the time. I just burned some that were due to expire on USair but saving the rest for the next (hopefully) GrandSlam.

    According to the rewards section on my erewards account you are limited to:

    While you are not supposed to have more than 1 active account you are able to change the account name at will. Have fun with that.

    My only reasonable options are Delta SkyPesos and Priority Club. I have a ton of hard to use Delta miles, and Priority Club has been extremely valuable to me for otherwise expensive hotel stays in Europe, particularly since the credit card signup gives me platinum status for very nice upgrades.

    If you have SW points already or are trying to save those I think the SW points are good. Beyond that my next choice would be the Priority Club points. They are worth more than the Hilton Points (imho). The Hertz points aren't worth much to me but if you need them they would be OK. It's really what your goals are.
