Million Mile Secrets reader, Soosie, commented:
Can you please tell me if it is possible to transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points directly (not to airline/hotel program) from spouse to spouse? Thanks!
Great question, Soosie!
It is possible to directly transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to your spouse. This is great news for folks who want to combine points to book award travel.
But Chase has different rules for transfers depending if you have a personal or small business card.

Million Mile Secrets reader, Prabha, sent an question via email:
With the Chase Freedom Unlimited card, when can I transfer the sign-up bonus of 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to airline partners like United Airlines instead of redeeming for $150 cash back?
Great question, Prabha!
Earning transferable points like Chase Ultimate Rewards points is the trick to travel flexibility! And often times, you can get more value for your points by transferring to airline and hotel partners instead of redeeming for cash back.
But to transfer Chase points to travel partners from no annual fee cards like the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited, you’ll need to have another eligible Chase card, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred.
Otherwise, the points you earn with the Freedom Unlimited can only be redeemed for 1 cent each for cash back or towards travel.
The Sign-Up Bonus With the Freedom Unlimited Can Be Worth More When You Have a 2nd Chase Ultimate Rewards Card! For Example, You Can Get a Free Night at the Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara Hotel, Which Can Cost $200+!
I’ll explain when Chase Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred to airline and hotels partners for Big Travel!

If you’ve been considering the Chase Fairmont card, you have very little time left to apply.
Via Reddit, the Chase Fairmont is being discontinued. They’re officially NO longer accepting applications for the card, and the last known application link was taken down this afternoon. But Frequent Miler reports there’s still a working link!
I doubt the link will last long. So you’ll have to move fast if you’re interested!
This card is NOT affected by the Chase “5/24 rule”, so even folks who have applied for more than 5 cards from any bank (excluding certain business cards) in the past 24 months can be approved.
