We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

Expedia Is Now Powering the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal

Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full advertising policy: How we make money.

Update: One or more card offers in this post are no longer available. Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers.

According to CNBC, as of yesterday, August 12, 2018, Expedia has starting taking over operation of the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal.

Chase describes it as a move to “provide credit-card users more flight and hotel options.”  But we’ll have to wait and see what this really means over the next couple of weeks and months.

If you want to learn more about using the Chase Travel Portal to book free flights, hotels, rental cars, and more, check out our step-by-step guide to using the Chase Travel Portal.

You Can Redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards Points for Travel Almost Anywhere in the World.  Here’s Hoping This New Partnership Brings Even More Booking Options!

At this point, both the Chase Ultimate Rewards website and app have been revamped for Chase Freedom cardholders (Chase Freedom® & Chase Freedom Unlimited®).  Supposedly making it easier to find and book flights and hotels, and making it easier to see a more detailed breakdown of fees.

Other cards, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or Chase Sapphire Reserve, will be phased in over the next few months.

When you book travel through Chase’s travel portal you get a value of 1 to 1.5 cents per point, depending on what kind of Chase card you have.  We’ll have to wait and see, but this partnership should mean having more flexibility to use your hard-earned Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  Because you should have more airline and hotel options.

And you can book airlines on Expedia you previously couldn’t book online through the Chase Travel Portal, like Norwegian, Allegiant, and WOW Air.  But you’ll still need to call to book Southwest flights through the Chase Travel Portal.
