Maybe it's just me, who has no experience with hotel points.
1) Your list starting:
-You will get 132K miles if you choose to transfer the miles to United.
And following
Which points are you transferring? SPG or Marriot?
2) you then refer to the 7 night certificate, which was not mentioned previously in this post.
Clarified.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

yes.
But after "The best value is the largest mileage option, though there are smaller mileage options as well." write:
"When you transfer {how many} {what type} miles:"
and then the rest will be crystal clear.

Nice fix.
And strongly recommending first reading the other posts on the merger was just what uninformed readers (like myself) needed.

Not necessarily.

They charge a pretty hefty resort fee ($50+/night IIRC) and when you book with cash most packages throw in some sort of resort credit which the points option does not.

It was a pretty poor value using points when I was looking.

Appreciate the help getting that post polished up a bit :)

Is there a typo in the last paragraph in this post? (Nothing instead of noting?)

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

It's slightly confusing but it makes sense once you read the whole thing. It might make more sense to set it up like this: mention the nights+flights options which gives you a 7 night cert and a certain number of airline miles (detailed after the chart). Then have the chart detailing how many spg or Marriott points are needed, then list how many miles you'll get at each airline.

How do you get both 132 united plus 7 nights with the same transfer? Still unclear to me...
