Million Mile Secrets reader, Prabha, sent an question via email:
With the Chase Freedom Unlimited card, when can I transfer the sign-up bonus of 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to airline partners like United Airlines instead of redeeming for $150 cash back?
Great question, Prabha!
Earning transferable points like Chase Ultimate Rewards points is the trick to travel flexibility! And often times, you can get more value for your points by transferring to airline and hotel partners instead of redeeming for cash back.
Otherwise, the points you earn with the Freedom Unlimited can only be redeemed for 1 cent each for cash back or towards travel.
I’ll explain when Chase Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred to airline and hotels partners for Big Travel!
