Point Transfers: Chase Ultimate Rewards

I've written about how Chase Ultimate Rewards are one of my favorite point currencies.  If you are new to UR points, read these posts on how to earn them via the Chase Sapphire Preferred card and how to combine points between cardholders.

Once you have accumulated a stash of points, you're going to want to redeem them.  That is the point of this whole game/hobby anyway.  Here's a quick overview of how to redeem/transfer points to one of the UR travel partners:

  1. Login to your Chase Ultimate Rewards Account
  2. Mouse over the "Point Transfer" menu on the top navigation bar
  3. Select the travel partner (in this case I've selected United) you want to transfer points to
  4. Select the number of points/miles you'd like to transfer (in 1,000 point/mile increments)
  5. Enter your United MileagePlus number twice
  6. Enter your First and Last Name
  7. Click "Continue" and then confirm the transfer
I've found that most transfer points (I've used United and Hyatt most often) transfer immediately so Ultimate Rewards points are awesome if you find availability and want to book something while it's still available.

Select the point transfer partner

Enter the transfer amount and your personal information
