You Can Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Korean Air Again

I wrote last month that Chase Ultimate Rewards point transfers to Korean Air would return some time in January 2015.

Chase has now confirmed that you’ll be able to transfer points to Korean Air again, starting January 25, 2015.

That’s great news for folks who book award tickets on Korean Air, or like using their miles for travel on partner airlines like Delta.

Should You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points to New Partner Virgin Atlantic?

Via View From the Wing, you can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to Virgin Atlantic.

Last year, Citi introduced points transfer to some airlines, including Singapore Airlines and Flying Blue (Air France / KLM).  It’s always good to have more airline partner choices!

That said, I’m not terribly excited by this news.  Virgin Atlantic is already a Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner.  And they add big fuel surcharges to their award tickets!

Should You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points To New Partner Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic Is the Newest Citi ThankYou Transfer Partner

But folks who collect Citi ThankYou points might find this useful, especially if they use Virgin Atlantic miles to book award tickets on airlines that don’t add fuel surcharges, like Hawaiian Airlines.

A Better 50,000 Point Offer for the AMEX Business Gold Rewards Card!

Update:  Doctor of Credit reports that some folks are able to get a 75,000 point offer with a higher minimum spending requirement.  I wasn’t able to see the offer, but others have had better luck!

The Military Frequent Flyer reports there’s a better offer available for the American Express Business Gold Rewards card.  You’ll get 50,000 American Express Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in new purchases in the 1st 3 months.

That’s enough for 2 domestic round-trip coach class tickets!

My previous link for this card had a sign-up bonus of 25,000 points with the same minimum spending requirement, so this is double the usual offer.

But I’ll always tell you about better deals even when they don’t earn us a commission!
