points comparison
« on: December 12, 2012, 11:44:48 AM »
I booked a family member tickets using 200,000 united points of mine. They want to pay me back by selling points that they have.

they have:
85,000 ink blue
93,000 amex gold
114,000 *wood

which points would be of the same value to my 200,000?
should they transfer these points to airlines first to get more value?

200K UA = ~$3400.00

Figure out how you want to do it:

UR = ~1.8-1.9
MR = ~1.6
*W = 2.0-2.2

You see that little squiggly line before the $3400.00?

they will be selling the points - would they still get that high for *wood?
also are the ink points same as sapphire? they transfer to airline?

and would it make sense to put lets say *wood first to an airline and then sell that ex. united - - or is the ratio on all these 1:1?

It means around. Meaning around 1.7.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

Yes.
Yes.
Definitely does not make sense for UA as ratio is 2:1.

Yes. Yes.
No. Starwood to united is a bad ratio (don't know it offhand). And generally points that are not in any airline are worth more than if put in an airline already.

ETA: beat me by 16 seconds  :P
