One of my favorite uses for Chase Ultimate Rewards points is transferring them to Hyatt. Because some of my favorite hotel stays have been with Hyatt, like the Hyatt Regency Maui!
You can get Big Travel by transferring the 80,000 point sign-up bonus from the Chase Ink Preferred card to Hyatt. Because you’ll have more than enough Hyatt points for 3 free nights at Category 6 Hyatt hotels, which cost 25,000 Hyatt points per night. That can save you thousands of dollars!
You can choose from some of the most luxurious hotels in the world to enjoy an anniversary, honeymoon, or special celebration!

I love transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to travel partners, like Flying Blue, Hyatt, and United Airlines. Because you’ll often get the most value for your points. But there are times when using the Chase portal is a better deal when you want a specific flight or hotel because your travel dates aren’t as flexible.
With the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you’ll get a 50% bonus, or 1.5 cents per point, when you redeem points for travel through the Chase portal. For example, this makes 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points worth $750 in travel instead of the $500 you’d get for redeeming points for cash back.
The best part is you can transfer points to your Sapphire Reserve card from other Chase Ultimate Rewards points cards like the Chase Freedom or Chase Ink Cash. This means your existing points will increase in value!
