When do you want to go?

If you want to open some new cards, open a Sapphire and Ink bold. Transfer to United.

If you transfer to him, he can transfer to your frequent flyer account.

Trouble is, SPG don't transfer to United as UR points do.

Sell the points, and contact a travel agent to buy a ticket.

you can prob get 1.65 cents per point if you shop around meaning $1650 for 100,000 points or $825 for 50,000
