Chase Transfer Partners

Chase Ultimate Rewards points are transferable to many airline and hotel partners. Below you’ll find a complete list of Chase transfer partners as well as suggestions for best uses.

Tips

Don’t transfer yet: Don’t transfer points until high value awards are available and you are ready to book them. Transfers are one-way only. Chase Ultimate Rewards points are valuable for their flexibility. Once you transfer, you are locked into a single program that may or may not have awards available.

Move points to a household member or business partner: You can freely move your points from one Chase account to another as long as the other account is owned by a household member or a business co-owner.

Always have at least 1 transferable account: Chase Ultimate Rewards cards with no annual fee (such as Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, and Ink Cash) do not directly allow point transfers to partners.  However, if you or a household member or business co-owner have at least one card that permits transfers, then you’re good to go.  For example, points acquired through the Chase Freedom card can be moved to a Chase Sapphire Preferred account and then transferred to airline or hotel partners.

Cards that allow point transfers include: Chase Sapphire Reserve, Sapphire Preferred, and Ink Business Preferred.

Don’t forget about the pay with points option: The Chase Sapphire Reserve card lets you pay with points for many types of travel.  When you do so, you’ll get 1.5 cents per point value from your points.  With other premium Chase cards (Sapphire Preferred, Ink Business Preferred), you’ll get 1.25 cents per point value.  If you or a household member has the Sapphire Reserve card, then it makes sense to move points to that card first before paying with points for travel.

In some cases it is possible to transfer to an airline or hotel program in order to then transfer from that program to another program. I’ll leave it to the reader to decide whether or not it is a good idea to transfer in these ways (hint: these transfers usually represent poor value, but there are exceptions).

Do cash plus points redemptions with Hyatt also get the hidden bonus of no resort fees?

Nick Reyes

No, they don’t. You will get charged a resort fee on cash & points. Also, Globalists get free parking — but only on award nights (not cash & points).

I’m not familiar with transferring UR points to other programs, but I’ve read before that having certain Chase credit cards are required either to transfer to specific partners or to transfer them at higher rates. Is it possible to include that information so that I can better familiarize myself with the requirements? Thanks.

Joe, he DID give you that information in the article.

Hi Greg:

Thank you for all excellent information you have researched for years.
Please help me to use British Airline’s Avios miles to fly with other airline provided that they are partners.

Thank you.

Please add the thumbs up graphic to the ideal transfer partners on this and the MR page such as you did on the SPG page.

Wow, thank you for the continual well-organized and thorough information. I don’t know how you do it! I retired end of 2016, and my 2017 goal has been to learn about rewards points. You have been instrumental in helping me.

having an ink card and the reserve card, UR points for each are shown. Since the reserve has a travel redemption of 1.5 cents vs 1.25 on points earned with ink, are you sure they will let you combine points and use them through the reserve card?….common sense would say no.

Nick Reyes

Yes, they absolutely do. In fact, in my case, my wife has the Sapphire Reserve and I have the Sapphire Preferred and Ink Plus. I’ve moved points from my Ink Plus / Sapphire Reserve to her account (Chase allows you to transfer with one person within your household) and then used them for 1.5 cents each. They definitely allow you to combine points back and forth between your cards.

This is one of the reasons why the CSR may be worth keeping beyond year 1 — if you use points at 1.5c often, it’s great to combo the CSR with an Ink Cash (or Plus if you still have it) or Freedom or Freedom Unlimited.

For Southwest, is paying with Chase points even an option? I didn’t think you could book Southwest through the Chase travel portal.

Nick Reyes

Yes, you just have to call and make the redemption over the phone with Chase.
