How to earn Chase points

Ultimate Rewards points are earned using Chase Ultimate Rewards credit cards and Chase cash back credit cards.

Chase Ultimate Rewards credit cards

Chase offers three Ultimate Rewards credit cards that allows you to transfer points to a handful of airline and hotel partners or redeem them for 25% to 50% more value towards travel via Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

You can earn Ultimate Rewards points using the following cards:

Credit Card Intro Bonus Annual Fee
Best For High Value & Travel Benefits
Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $900 toward travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. $550
Best For Flexible Travel Rewards
Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. $95
Best For Flexible Business Travel Rewards
Earn 100k bonus points after you spend $15,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $1,000 cash back or $1,250 toward travel when redeemed through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. $95

Chase cash back credit cards

Chase offers four no-annual fee cash back credit cards that earn Ultimate Rewards points. Points redeemed through these cards are worth up to 1 cent each towards cash back, travel, and a handful of other redemptions.

The good thing about these cards is that you can transfer your earned points directly to an Ultimate Rewards credit card. You'll then be able to redeem those points for higher value towards travel as well as transfer them to Chase's airline and hotel partners.

This significantly bumps up the value of Chase's cash back credit cards. If you're looking to maximize your rewards towards travel, you'll want to pair these cash back credit cards with Chase Ultimate Rewards credit cards.

Here are the Chase cash back credit cards that earn points transferable to Ultimate Rewards credit cards:

Credit Card Intro Bonus Annual Fee
Best For Flat-Rate & Bonus Cash Back
Earn an additional 1.5% cash back on everything you buy, up to $20,000 spent during the first year. That's up to $300 cash back. $0
