Between now and October 10, 2016 you can transfer your IHG Rewards Club points to United MileagePlus miles. For each 10,000 points you transfer you get a 50% bonus. The kicker is that 10,000 IHG points usually becomes 2,000 airline miles. With this special you’ll end up with 3,000 UA miles. So it’s not a great ratio, obviously.
The process is quite simple. First go to the United site and register for the promotion.
Next, contact the IHG Customer Care Center to initiate the transfer.
Is this something you want to do? As usual, it depends on your personal situation. If you are IHG points-rich and just need a few miles to top off a UA award then, perhaps. Otherwise I’d give this one a pass.
