My favorite use of Chase Ultimate Rewards points is transferring them to airline and hotel partners for Big Travel with Small Money.
But sometimes you’re better off using points to book airfare through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal.
Right now, there are great sign-up bonuses on the Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Cash cards. And you can use Chase Ultimate Rewards points earned with these cards to book discounted travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal.
Save Money (and Points!) When You Use Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Book Airfare and More Through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal
Let’s see when it’s a better deal to use points to pay for airfare instead of transferring them to airlines!
You can get ~5% back (or more) for online shopping when you use the points you’ve earned towards flights on American Airlines.
The trick is to combine the best benefits of 2 Citi cards that currently have interesting sign-up bonuses.
If You Have the Citi Prestige and Citi AT&T Access More Cards, You Could Get ~5% Back for Online Purchases When You Redeem Points for American Airlines and US Airways Flights
I’ll explain how to stack discounts for online shopping. But if that seems like too much work, I’ll show you an easier way!
Did you know that you could get a lot of money from the airlines if you’ve experienced a delay, cancellation, or overbooking in the past 3 years?
Most folks don’t pursue this, either because they don’t know what they’re entitled to, or are turned off by the inconvenience of filing a claim.
Now there’s a service that will do the work for you! AirHelp will file claims on your behalf, follow up with the airline, and take the airline to court if required. Even if you traveled on an award ticket!
AirHelp Could Get You Compensation for Delayed or Canceled Flights and More
And the best part is, if you aren’t compensated, you do NOT have to pay AirHelp. If the airline pays, AirHelp will take 25% of the proceeds. That’s still much better than getting nothing!
Let’s see how AirHelp works and if it’s worth submitting a claim!

If you’re looking to travel in style to Europe this summer, you should check out the latest batch of Flying Blue Promo Awards!
With this month’s Flying Blue Promo Awards, you can save 25% to 50% off the regular number of points required for Premium Economy and Business Class award seats between Europe and certain North American cities.
If you don’t have Flying Blue miles, you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards, Starwood, or Citi ThankYou points.
This month, Atlanta, Edmonton, Miami, Minneapolis, and New York are included.
And if you don’t live in 1 of these cities, there are ways to get there cheaply. I’ll explain!
