One of the best perks of the Chase Ultimate Rewards credit cards with no annual fee is the ability to pool your points. This makes the points you earn with Chase credit cards like the Ink Business Cash Credit CardChase Freedom® or Chase Freedom Unlimited® more valuable because you can transfer them to travel partners through an annual-fee Chase Ultimate Rewards card like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card.

This can be especially lucrative if you combine your points onto your Chase Sapphire Reserve® account because they will be worth more when you redeem them through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal (1.5 cents per point) compared to the other Ultimate Rewards credit cards.

How to increase the value of your Chase Ultimate Rewards points

If you redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards points for travel through the Chase portal, be sure to move points to the right card. That’s because each Chase Ultimate Rewards card has a set rate of how much your Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth when booking through the Chase site:

Chase Ultimate Rewards CardHow Much Are Points Worth Toward Travel? Do Points Transfer to Travel Partners?
Chase Freedom1 centNo
Chase Freedom Unlimited1 centNo
Chase Sapphire (no longer available)1 centNo
Chase Sapphire Preferred Card1.25 centsYes
Chase Sapphire Reserve1.5 centsYes
Chase Ink Business Cash Credit Card1 centNo
Ink Business Unlimited Credit Card1 centNo
Chase Ink Bold (no longer available)1.25 centsYes
Chase Ink Plus (no longer available to new applicants)1.25 centsYes
Ink Business Preferred Credit Card1.25 centsYes

So Sapphire Reserve cardholders get the best deal because you’ll get a 50% bonus (1.5 cents per point) when you redeem points for travel through the Chase portal. If you don’t have the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, but someone in your household does, it’s possible to transfer your points to their account. For personal rewards credit cards that earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points, Chase says:

You can move your points, but only to another Chase card with Ultimate Rewards belonging to you, or one member of your household.

For business credit cards the rules are similar, except you can also share points with a business co-owner.

The above rules apply when you are sharing Chase points between accounts, but the guidelines are slightly different if you want to transfer points directly into someone else’s airline or hotel loyalty account. In this situation, you can only transfer points directly into the loyalty account of a spouse/partner who is living at the same address and is an authorized user on your Chase travel credit card. Or if it’s a business card, you can make Chase points transfers directly into the airline or hotel account of a co-owner who is also an authorized user on the same business card.

How to pool your points

Sign into your Ultimate Rewards account 

First, login to your Chase Ultimate Rewards account. You can do this by signing into your account from the Chase homepage and then clicking on the “Ultimate Rewards” banner.

Can You Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Between Family Members Accounts

Click on “Combine Points”

Once you’re into the Chase Ultimate Rewards page, go to the banner at the top of the screen and click on “Combine Points.” You may have to click on the “See More” ellipsis to get the option to combine points to appear.

Add a household member

This will take you to the next screen, giving you the option of adding a household member so that you can transfer points to them.

Can You Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Between Family Members Accounts

Enter the other cardmember’s information

The last step is to enter the account number and last name, and then click “Continue.” Remember, they must be a household member if you want to transfer points to them. If it is a business card, they do not need to be a household member as long as they are a co-owner of the company.

Can You Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Between Family Members Accounts

Once you’ve transferred the points to the other person’s account, they’ll also be able to move the points among their own cards. So for instance, if you transferred the points to their Chase Freedom card, they could then combine the points with their Chase Sapphire Preferred card or any other Chase card that also earns Ultimate Rewards points.

When you transfer points to the other person, you can still freely move points back and forth. So if the other person decides they no longer need the points, they can login to their Chase Ultimate Rewards account and simply transfer the points back to you.

Bottom line

For personal accounts, Chase allows you to transfer points to one other person as long as they also live in the same household. If you would like to transfer points from a business credit card to someone, they can be either a household member or a co-owner of that company.

Transferring the points and having them in a single account can make it much easier to book a flight for multiple people. This also comes in handy if a member of your household needs a few extra miles to book an award flight. Chase scrutinizes these types of points transfers and can close out your accounts if you violate the terms, so just make sure you are following these rules.

Chase must want to down size

Wow. That would be a fantastic move on their part, if their goal is to get people to cancel their cards. At the very least, I’d stop using the Freedom Unlimited in favor of a 2% cash back card from not-Chase. I might well decide to cancel my Reserve, too, if they made it no longer buff the power of the Freedom and Freedom Unlimited cards – that’s one of the biggest reasons I think the card is so good.

Yeah, I can’t imagine a single Chase customer being happy if this happens.
