Update:  The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point offer is no longer available, but check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

One of the more popular ways to use Chase Ultimate Rewards points is transferring them to United Airlines.  Folks like United Airlines because they usually have lots of award seats available, and you can use miles to travel on lots of partner airlines.

Now that the Chase Ink Plus sign-up bonus has increased to 70,000 points for a limited time after you spend $5,000 in the 1st 3 months, you might wonder how much travel you could get by transferring those points to United Airlines.

Note: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point bonus offer ends on October 19, 2014.

The increased sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus business card is now available to everyone online!  You’ll get 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in the 1st 3 months.

Folks are excited about what they can get with all those points!  When used for merchandise, gift cards, or cash back, 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points is worth $700 (1 cent per point).  If redeemed for travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal, they’re worth $875 (1.25 cents per point).

But in my experience, the best way to get the most out of Chase Ultimate Rewards points is to transfer them to airline, hotel, and rail partners.  You can get thousands of dollars worth of travel by transferring them to partners like Hyatt, United Airlines, or Southwest!

A common opinion held by many miles-and-points enthusiasts is that Delta’s frequent flyer miles (often jokingly referred to as SkyPesos) can be hard to use.

Folks complain about a lack of available low-level award seats, a website that doesn’t always give accurate information, and very high pricing on some routes, especially international award tickets.
