wasn't thinking. Meant to say $3000. The guy on the mainsite gives 1.6 for large accts somewhere on the forums people discussed getting more.
Anyway my point still holds, since you also have to count at least $120 fees.
The only scenario I see this making sense is if DL runs a transfer promo that's better tjan their 1.1 CPM seasona mile price

Because UR points are a relatively new currency, especially in their current quantity.
Why do always seem to take such a combative tone?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Where do you see a combative tone in my question? I was just asking why, and if anyone can please create one because I plan using them for my upcoming. So can you please?

Because UA is basically the only reasonable (non-YQ) option.

Delta. Nyc-tlv is probably never open, but ATL-TLV might very well be. Afaik u have to search delta.dumb. (For the low level availability). Star has us from phl co 2 flights from EWR AC from toronto

I guess thats the most likely of all, but it really doesn't make sense to transfer the points until you have a reservation on hold. Why limit your options?

Yes, you're right. I'm just trying to figure out which co-brand airline CC I should apply for in order to accumulate the needed points, and then transfer all my URe into that FF program. But anyway, thanks for your help!

I'm not really packed with MRs, I only have about 30k. My real strength is with URs... Can I transfer MRs directly to United?
