Yes. Mine. Incurs a transfer fee though

Convert or transfer?

@bcg2: convert!

No. Airline mileage accounts are a terminal destination for points. Very different than hotel and especially credit card points which are a much more flexible currency.

@BCG3, that's not technically correct. You can convert to some programs. I know Marriott for sure, but the Marriott conversion is not favorable. For example, 1 United mile (worth 1.5 cents) converts to 1 Marriott point (worth 0.9 cents) last I checked.

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement.

Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
