Via FrequentMiler, you can fly from US cities like Atlanta, Houston, Detroit, Denver, and more, to European cities including London, Paris, and Madrid, in Business Class from ~$1,795!

I found a Business Class flight from Phoenix to Barcelona leaving May 17, 2017, and returning May 24, 2017, for ~$1,819.  And a Business Class ticket departing from New York (JFK) on August 24, 2017, and returning from London on August 31, 2017, for ~$1,887.  

This is an amazing deal, because Business Class tickets between the US and Europe can easily cost $4,000+.

How to Get the Most Value for Your Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Booking Southwest Flights

Million Mile Secrets reader, A.J., commented:

In many cases, I’ve found better value by transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest for award flights, rather than using points from my Chase Sapphire Reserve to book through the Chase travel portal.

Can you explain when it’s a better deal to use Chase Ultimate Rewards points for Southwest flights through the travel portal?

Fantastic question!

The value of your points for a Southwest award flight varies depending on your travel dates and destination.

It’s possible to sometimes get more value for your points by transferring them directly to Southwest.  But some folks prefer to use points from the Chase Sapphire Reserve to book through the Chase travel portal.

Because you earn points like a regular paid flight, get credit toward A-List status and the Companion Pass, and don’t have to pay any taxes or fees out of pocket.

I’ll show you how using Chase Ultimate Rewards points for Southwest flights can get you different values depending how you book.
