Fly Virgin Atlantic to UK, Stay at Hilton With Ink Plus 70,000 Point Bonus

Update:  The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point offer is no longer available, but check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

I’ve written about Virgin Atlantic’s frequent flyer program and how it’s often not the best deal because of the high fuel surcharges they add to most award tickets.

Virgin Atlantic is a Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partner and you can use their miles on Virgin Atlantic flights, as well as flights on partner airlines like Hawaiian Airlines, Delta, and Virgin America.  You can also transfer points to Hilton hotels at a 2:3 ratio.

See America by Amtrak With 70,000 Point Ink Plus

Update:  The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point offer is no longer available, but check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

Most miles-and-points enthusiasts focus on flights and hotels, so the Amtrak Guest Rewards program doesn’t get much attention as a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards.

But if you don’t mind traveling at a more easy-going pace, or want to see the country from your own private bedroom, you might want to consider using points to travel on Amtrak.  Because you can get valuable train tickets for relatively few points!

By transferring the increased 70,000 point sign-up bonus from the Chase Ink Plus to Amtrak, you can get lots of (interesting!) Big Travel with Small Money!

Note: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point bonus offer ends on October 19, 2014.

What Are Your Favorite Ways to Use Miles and Points?

Disclosure:  We get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do.  American Express is a Million Mile Secrets advertising partner.  Here’s our Advertiser Disclosure.

As travel enthusiasts, we all collect miles and points for different reasons.  Some of us save up for luxury vacations, First Class travel, and 5-star hotels.  Other folks prefer stretching their points, favoring coach flights, budget accommodations, and the best deals.

Others rather travel off the beaten path, staying away from chain hotels and looking for new adventures.  And some people save their points to share their love of travel with family and friends.

There’s no right or wrong way to use your miles or points!  Whether you use them for international or domestic travel, or even redeem them for gift cards if you won’t be traveling, the important thing is to do what you like with them!
