Will I Lose My Points If I Close 1 of My 2 Chase Ultimate Rewards Earning Cards?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Lau, commented:

Hiya!  If I want to close my Chase Sapphire Preferred and keep my Chase Freedom card, do I lose the Chase Ultimate Rewards points I earned with my Chase Sapphire Preferred account?

Thanks for the question, Lau!

As long as you keep at least 1 Chase Ultimate Rewards points earning card open, you won’t lose your Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you cancel a card.  Just transfer all your points to the account you plan to keep before you cancel. 

But your points may not be worth as much to you!
