Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) points are one of the more valuable hotel points currencies out there. In addition to being probably THE cheapest for low-level award stays (as low as 2000 points / night!), they also allow you to transfer points to many airlines. The transfer is 1:1, but if you transfer in groups of 20,000 SPG points, you get an additional 20% bonus, so 20,000 SPG points turns into 25,000 airline miles.

Right now through August 7th, American Airlines is offering an ADDITIONAL 20% bonus, where 20,000 SPG points will turn into 30,000 American Airlines miles.
