Star Alliance award question

Star Alliance award question

  1. Anonymous

    For Star Alliance rewards, I understand that you cannot combine miles from different programs for a single award, but can you add miles accumulated in Ultimate Rewards (from a chase credit card) to a single program (like United) and combine the Ultimate Rewards with the miles in that program, and then use the combined miles on for award travel on any of the Star Alliance partners?

    SteveM – You’ll transfer the URs directly to your United MileagePlus account, so all the miles will be in that currency. Then you can use those UA miles on any Star Alliance carrier. Does that make sense?

    Hi SteveM — Yep, that’s exactly how it should work!
