Chase Ultimate Rewards points are EXTREMELY valuable if you’re looking to get Big Travel with Small Money!

These are my favorite flexible points because they’re relatively easy to earn and transfer directly to 13 airline and hotel partners, including Hyatt (no blackout dates) and United Airlines (access to StarAlliance partner award flights)!

Earn Chase Ultimate Rewards Points With These Cards!

You can earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points to transfer directly to airline and hotel partners with these 3 excellent card offers.

Card Sign-Up Bonus & Minimum Spending RequirementsOur Review
Ink Business Preferred Credit Card
80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of opening your accountRead why this is the top card pick for small business owners
Chase Sapphire Preferred Card

60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of opening your accountThis is the #1 card for beginners
Chase Sapphire Reserve
50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of opening your account
Lots of folks love this premium credit card because of the ongoing perks!

Just keep in mind these cards are impacted by Chase’s stricter application rules.  So if you’ve opened 5+ cards from any bank (except these business cards) in the past 24 months, it’s unlikely you’ll be approved.

You can also transfer points directly to travel partners if you have cards that are no longer available to new applicants like the Chase Ink Plus or Ink Bold.

But if you have any of these no annual fee cards, you’ll have to combine points to one of the above cards before you can transfer them.

Bottom Line

It’s very easy to transfer valuable Chase Ultimate Rewards points directly to airline and hotel partners.

This is a fantastic way to use points because you can book award travel with partners like Hyatt who has no blackout dates.  Or United Airlines, which is part of the StarAlliance.  So you can use United Airlines miles to book award flights on partner airlines, like Lufthansa or LOT Polish Airlines!

Is the Travel Partners program still active? I just checked in with CUR via my Freedom Card, and Travel Partners were nowhere to be seen. The telephone CSR assured me that transferring points to airline partners was never offered, and she knew, what with her years of experience. What’s going on? Did my 262k UR points just drop 80% in value?

How can I earn earn rewards with the chase liquid visa

Hi Witr!

The Chase Liquid Visa is a reloadable prepaid card, and it does not earn any miles or points rewards. If you’re just starting out and looking to earn more miles and points, this may be a good place to start 🙂

Do you have to own a business to apply for the Chase Inc card? My husband works out of our home but travels internationally quite often. I noticed on the application, they ask for a tax ID #

Hi Janet, if you don’t have a separate number for the business, you can apply using your SSN! And although some people have a separate business number and file the paperwork with their county/state to have it formally recognized as a business, it’s not necessarily a requirement to qualify for a business card. I qualified for my Chase Ink Business Preferred card as a sole proprietor using only my SSN.

This article talks more about how you can qualify for a business card:

It’s interesting that within the last couple weeks, I have noticed that the CUR portal has been revamped and the points redemptions are slightly higher than before. This coincides with more than normal travel blog posts here and elsewhere promoting CUR.

Thanks for sharing the data point! I’ve noticed the prices are typically similar to other online travel agencies. I’m curious if you’ve seen higher prices for flights or hotels?
