Converting UA and NW miles to AA

Hey, All.

Sorry to post a basic question, but hadn't seen this topic in a long time and don't know what has changed. We have expiring UA and NW miles, and basically only fly AA (until JetBlue goes to Japan? ). What are the current best ways to convert? (Thru Starwood/Hilton/etc.)

Thanks in advance.

PS When are people in the Chat room? I miss the old gang and can't find ya!

Hilton is out for UA miles.
NW miles don't expire. (My wife's account is still active without any activity in the last five years.)

UA is offering a promotion for 1000 bonus miles if you get an online statement. There is also a Chris Everet 500 miles promotion that is still going on. They may help you to refresh that account.

Thanks, Dude! - Good idea. I think I've got 150K sleeping with UA, so would hate to waste 'em! (Getting them at a good ratio to AA where I can use them would be even better, but...)
