Arrow Get 1,000 UA miles per 3,500 (??) Choice Priv. points!

On May 18, the Choice Privileges promised that members could redeem 3500 Choice points (instead of the normal 5K) for 1000 United Mileage Plus Miles between May 19, 2010 and June 30, 2010. When I tried to transfer on May 20, the price shown was 4K, so I phoned Choice. Fast service: This was corrected to 3500 on May 21 !
So those of us who have a Choice Visa or have stayed at Choice since January 1/ 2008 can buy 32K Choice from Discover America for $120 & convert 31,500 thereof into 9K UA!

In case others misunderstand this as I did at first (when posted in the UA MP forum), this is not UA MP Visa Choice Points but rather Choice Privileges as in Quaility Inn, Comfort Inn, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, EconoLodge ...

We should be safe from that misunderstanding here, given that this is the Choice Privleges forum!

I just did, but it still does not correct the title in the list of threads.

Yes, I do want to. Scroll to bottom of that page.

Thanks!

So anyone can qualify for this once they post a stay to their account. If buying miles from Discover America, the final cost is 1.313 cpm. (Not including the cost of a stay.)
