IMO crediting your miles to UA makes no sense unless you´re able to make 1K status (which would earn you 6 GPUs - probably the most valuable UA status perk). The only exception to this would be if you fly to destinations in Central America not served by AC and you´re actually flying UA somewhat regularly. In that case even having mid-tier status probably is more useful than AC status.

I´m not aware of any meaningful benefits offered by TK that you wouldn´t get a *G member anyway.

If we were talking about an extra 100k miles, there are many good options incl. UA 1K, AA EXP or even LH SEN, but 50k miles doesn´t get you much.

Personally I would credit them to AC/AE and earn the additional upgrade credits as well as the 25k bonus miles when crossing 150k miles.
