What Are Your Favorite Ways to Use Miles and Points?

As travel enthusiasts, we all collect miles and points for different reasons.  Some of us save up for luxury vacations, First Class travel, and 5-star hotels.  Other folks prefer stretching their points, favoring coach flights, budget accommodations, and the best deals.

Others rather travel off the beaten path, staying away from chain hotels and looking for new adventures.  And some people save their points to share their love of travel with family and friends.

There’s no right or wrong way to use your miles or points!  Whether you use them for international or domestic travel, or even redeem them for gift cards if you won’t be traveling, the important thing is to do what you like with them!

Million Mile Secrets reader Sergei commented:

I have a lot of Chase Ultimate Rewards points on my Chase Sapphire Preferred card. I am wondering if those points will get a 10% bonus at the end of the year if I transfer them to my Chase Freedom card.

I know they should get a 7% year-end bonus because they were earned on the Chase Sapphire Preferred, but will those Chase Ultimate Rewards points also get 10% year end bonus from the Chase Freedom card as “transfer” points?
