Keep Points Flexibility After Downgrading This Chase Travel Card

Million Mile Secrets reader, Harold, commented:

If I downgrade my Chase Sapphire Preferred to the Chase Freedom Unlimited, can I still transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points from the Freedom Unlimited to the Chase Sapphire Reserve?

Absolutely!

On its own, the points you earn from the Freedom Unlimited can only be redeemed for 1 cent each toward travel or for cash back.

But when you pair it with another eligible Chase Ultimate Rewards card like the Sapphire Reserve, you’ll have the flexibility to combine points and transfer them to terrific airline and hotel partners.

With a downgrade, you’ll also avoid duplicate benefits and save on annual fees.  That’s why after getting the Sapphire Reserve, I downgraded the Sapphire Preferred to the no annual fee Freedom Unlimited.

Does the Chase Freedom Earn Cash Back or Points?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Gina, commented:

Is the Chase Freedom a cash back card or a points card?

With the Chase Freedom and Chase Freedom Unlimited cards, you earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points, which can later be redeemed for cash back, gift cards, or travel.

On their own, the points you earn from the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited can only be redeemed for 1 cent each for cash back or towards travel.

But your points are worth much more and give you flexibility when you also have certain Chase Ultimate Rewards cards, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve.

You Actually Can Book Many Disney World Resorts With Points

Ken and his wife Emily write about using points and miles (and saving money) on Disney trips at Mousehacking.com.  So I’ve asked them to share their tips on booking Walt Disney World hotels with Chase Ultimate Rewards points!

Ken and Emily:   If you’re a Disney fan, you know their amazing parks and experiences keep travelers coming back!  Many folks who visit Walt Disney World don’t consider using miles and points to offset the hotel cost of their trip, because most Disney resorts don’t belong to a loyalty program.

More seasoned travelers know they can book the on-site Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin using Starwood points.   But did you know you can book other Disney resorts with flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards?
