Hard question to answer because it really depends on where you want to go and what the award availability looks like. I'm not sure if this is true, but I think at least anecdotally from people I know, United and Hyatt are probably the most transferred to partners and I would say most people who travel shouldn't have a problem using those miles/points.

I'm referring specifically to value $ wise.
Not necc looking to sell them but the value is indicative of the potential of the points. Since I have no specific plans to go anywhere I'm more intereseted in the highest value amongst the various airline programs

In my experience, if looking to sell those 2 partners (United and Hyatt) will most likely bring the most value. Perhaps Singapore airlines too. Maybe Virgin Atlantic. But the best way to sell Chae UR is in that form - as UR prior to transfer.
