Unless you have an old Continental card that gives 5% off (as I do) then Starwood will be your best bet.

Does CO have a mileage partnership with any other airline? If so, should I have them channel the points into one of them or keep it at CO?

The only Skyteam partner that I would consider to credit to is Alitalia, but I think Continental's long-term future is safer than theirs...
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.

I just created the CO frequent flyer account. I have 0 points in it. Is there any way to move the 20,000 miles I put in KLM over to CO? How about the Cathay Pacific miles?
