Chase Points Transfer Calculator

Ultimate Rewards Transfer Partners

Ultimate Rewards Points Transfer Partner Calculator for calculating the conversion of Chase Points to airline miles and hotel points. Compare transfer partners side by side AMEX, Citi, Marriott, and more.


Ultimate Rewards Points is one of the four major bank programs that allow you to transfer points to other loyalty programs. Chase features a little over 10 transfer partners which consists of hotel loyalty and frequent flyer programs. Transferring your Ultimate Rewards Points allows you to earn airline miles (not so much hotel points) at a faster rate than you would with most co-branded airline credit cards. This also gives you a chance at earning a higher return than the 3.25% to 4.5% you can easily receive booking travel through Chase's portal. Read on to get the details on Chase's transfer partners and see how they compare to other major programs.

Skyteam Alliance

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points transfers to one Skyteam partner which is Air France-KLM. Since Air France-KLM is also a transfer partner of all the major transferable point programs, there's nothing special here. Those who prefer additional options under the Skyteam umbrella or those who are looking to earn Delta Skymiles will want to consider the AMEX Membership Rewards program.

It's worth noting that Ultimate Rewards Points also transfer to Virgin Atlantic which is not a Skyteam partner, but they are closely partnered with Delta. Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles can be used to book award travel on Delta metal. This can usually save you points on international travel (especially between the U.S. and Europe).

Oneworld Alliance

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points transfers to two Oneworld Alliance partners which are British Airways and Iberia. Avios is the rewards currency of both British Airways and Ibera along with several other programs such as Aer Club, Vueling, and Air Italy. Booking through these Oneworld partners will allow you to book award travel to fly on other Oneworld airlines as well as codeshare partners. This includes airlines such as:

  • American Airlines
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Japan Airlines
  • LATAM
  • Qantas
  • Qatar Airways
  • Vueling

Those looking for ways to earn America Airlines AAdvantage Miles will want to take a look at the Marriott Bonvoy program. Chase, AMEX, Citi, and Capital One does not transfer to American Airlines.

Star Alliance

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points transfers directly to two Star Alliance airlines which are United Airlines and Singapore Airlines. The Singapore KrisFlyer program is a transfer partner of all the major programs, but United is not. Hotel programs aside, Chase is the only major transferable point program that transfers to United. This makes Ultimate Rewards Points the best program for those looking to earn United Miles. This allows you book award travel on airlines such as:

  • Air Canada
  • Air New Zealand
  • All Nippon Airways
  • Avianca Airlines
  • Lufthansa
  • South Africa Airways
  • Swiss International Air Lines
  • Turkish Airlines

Other Airlines

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points transfers to JetBlue Airways at a 1:1 ratio. Both Citi and AMEX transfers to JetBlue TrueBlue, but at a 5:4 ratio. Capital One transfers at an even worse ratio of 2:1. While Chase is the only 1:1 partner, Citi and AMEX both offers cards that can generally earn a higher amount of points per $1 spent than Chase. This means that Chase will not necessarily be the better option. So if you're looking to earn JetBlue TrueBlue Points, you will want to run the calculations across all three programs.

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points transfers to Southwest Airlines at a 1:1 ratio. This makes Chase the best option for earning Southwest Rapid Rewards Points.

World of Hyatt

Hyatt Points has an average value of around 1.8 cents each when redeemed for free nights. That means transferring Ultimate Rewards Points to Hyatt will usually give you great value. Chase is the only major program that transfer to Hyatt. If you're looking to maximize your points on Hyatt spend, you will still want to consider picking up the Chase Hyatt Card due to the free night and 4 Hyatt Points per $1 it earns at Hyatt Properties.

IHG Rewards Club

Ultimate Rewards Points is the only major program that transfers to IHG Rewards Club. Ultimate Rewards transfer to IHG at an even 1:1 ratio. This makes Chase the best program for earning IHG Points on non-IHG Property purchases. The IHG Premier Card earns 10 IHG Points per $1 spent at IHG Properties making it still a card worth considering if your loyalty is with IHG or you want an annual free night.

Marriott Bonvoy

Ultimate Rewards Points transfer to Marriott Bonvoy at a 1:1 ratio. This is the same ratio that Membership Rewards has as well. Transferring points to Marriott can be useful for those looking to book award nights. Do note that while Marriott Bonvoy Points has an average value of around 0.7 cents each, there are great redemptions that can get you a significantly higher value without too much additional research.

Another perk of being a 1:1 transfer partner, is that you can transfer points to airline programs that Marriott is a direct partner of that Chase is not. While this would be giving you a not so favorable ratio of 3 Ultimate Rewards Point for 1 airline mile in most programs, it is at least another option.

Summary

Transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards Points is a great way to top off your favorite airline and hotel loyalty accounts. It also provides a way for you to get more than 1.5 cents in value per Chase Point.

If you're looking to maximize your earnings you'll need to pair together the best combination of Chase Ultimate Rewards and Chase cash back credit cards.
