My favorite use of Chase Ultimate Rewards points is transferring them to airline and hotel partners for Big Travel with Small Money.
But sometimes you’re better off using points to book airfare through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal.
Right now, there are great sign-up bonuses on the Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Cash cards. And you can use Chase Ultimate Rewards points earned with these cards to book discounted travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal.
