Let me explain it clearly:

The value of UR is the ability to add an AU and send the points to his FF# of choice. You can only do this once per account (you might be able to do 2 if you have separate logins for personal and business UR) once you do this the only way to unload UR is by sending UR to UR and that goes for a cheaper rate.

Brokers do not like large accounts for option A as they have to find someone who needs all of the account in one transfer so they pay less for that

Does it make sense to transfer UR to my own airline account for example to UA and sell the UA miles instead?
