Consolidate your United and Continental miles.

Good news. Even though the united and continental merger happened well over a year ago, they hadn't provided the ability to combine miles from the two different programs,untill now.

Take the following steps to log in and get to the transfer miles page -

Go to this page (or united), and enter your united Mileage number and password, as well as your Continental Mileage number and PIN(note that you need your pin and not the password).

Once you log in,you will see both your united miles as well as the continental miles on one page. I transfered over 100 miles from continental to united just to see if it works fine, and also for it to count as a transaction, so that this could reduce my inactivity period at continental.

This is really useful for me because i had about 20k miles on both, and now by combining these , i am eligible for a round trip ticket starting at 25k miles, and am already at 15k for the second one.
