Chase Ultimate Rewards points are a go-to choice for many miles and points fans. In large part, this is because they have a ton of different uses and can be transferred to valuable airline and hotel programs including United MileagePlus, Southwest Rapid Rewards and World of Hyatt.
Chase Ultimate Rewards Points can be transferred to many airline and hotel partners, including Southwest Airlines
In this article, I’ll show you how to transfer points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to any of its transfer partners. We’ll also give you a look at the most valuable partners and answer some of the most commonly asked questions about transferring Chase points.
Let’s dive in!
How to Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points To Airline and Hotel Partners
First thing’s first: let’s learn how to transfer points.
To transfer your Ultimate Rewards points to airline or hotel partners, you must have a Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, Chase Sapphire Reserve or the Ink Business Preferred Card.
The Chase Freedom, Chase Freedom Unlimited, Chase Ink Business Cash Card and Chase Ink Business Unlimited Card each earn Ultimate Rewards points, but do not let you transfer to airline partners.
However, you can transfer Ultimate Rewards points from a card that doesn’t have an annual fee to one that does. More on that in a bit!
Additionally, you can only transfer points to your own loyalty program accounts or the account of one person in your household. Some have reported being able to transfer points to another person’s account, but this often leads to account shutdowns by Chase. We do not recommend that you do this.
Now, let’s talk about the transfer process.
Start by navigating to the Chase website and logging into your Chase account.
Scroll to the bottom of your dashboard and click the blue Chase Ultimate Rewards button. This button will display the number of points in your account. You’ll be taken to your Ultimate Rewards account page.
Now, look towards the top of the screen and click the Transfer to Travel Partners button or select this option from the dropdown menu in the top left hand corner of the page. You’ll be redirected to a page that lists all of Chase’s transfer partners.
Next, click on the Transfer Points button to the right of the partner you want to use to start the process. For this example, we’ll transfer points to United MileagePlus.
