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.
