Best Ultimate Rewards transfer partners

Chase Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred to over 10 partners. While there are some partners that are significantly better than others, you can easily get value out of most of their partners.

Listed below are a handful of the best airline and hotel rewards programs for getting great value out of your points.

World of Hyatt

The easiest way to get exceptional value with little to no effort is by transferring your points to the World of Hyatt program. Hyatt Points are worth 1.8 cents each on average, but it's very easy to get over 2 cents per point when redeeming points for free nights at most Hyatt brand hotels.

United Airlines MileagePlus

Chase Ultimate Rewards is the only major U.S. bank rewards program that allows you to transfer your rewards to United MileagePlus. This makes the Ultimate Rewards program the best way to quickly earn United Miles outside of using United's own credit cards.

United Miles are worth about 1.3 cents each on average when used to fly domestically around the United States. You can get higher value using them for Business Class and First Class flights with United and select airline partners as well as great value using them to fly internationally.

Use the United Excursionist Perk to add an extra stopover/layover to your travel and up the value of your miles.

Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards

Southwest Rapid Rewards is another airline in which Chase Ultimate Rewards is the sole major U.S. transfer partner. Southwest offers five credit cards of it's own which features great benefits and earning rates, but Chase is the better option when it comes to quickly earning lots of points via intro bonuses.

Southwest isn't part of any airline alliance and they are not partnered with any airline. Rapid Rewards Points are worth around 1.3 cents and they don't fluctuate often, so you'll always know how much your points are worth on average.

Southwest is great for flying domestically in the U.S. or flying to select destinations such as the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii.

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club is a direct transfer of Chase Ultimate Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards and Citi ThankYou Rewards. This makes it extremely easy to build Virgin Atlantic Points via intro bonuses and credit card spending.

Virgin Atlantic Points are worth about 1.2 cents each on average, but can be worth more when redeemed for first and business class with Virgin Atlantic and partners. They are especially great for booking flights on Delta One as well as flights between the U.S. and Europe.

Use Virgin Atlantic Points to easily fly between the U.S. and Europe.

British Airways Executive Club

If you want to hop between different destinations in Europe, British Airways Avios is one of the best ways to do it. Avios are worth 1 cent each on average for economy flights, but you can get as much as 2 cents per point for business class flights.

Avios points are best used for short-haul flights in Europe as well as short-haul flights with oneworld partners such as American Airlines and Alaska Airlines. Another big plus to British Airways Avios is that they can be converted to Qatar Avios and Ibera Avios at a 1:1 ratio which opens up additional redemption options that can offer high value.

Earning Chase Ultimate Rewards points

Chase offers several credit cards that earn Ultimate Rewards points. Listed below are a few of our top picks.

Chase Sapphire Reserve®

If you're looking for excellent travel benefits and an easy high return on your spend, the Chase Sapphire Reserve is the best option.

It earns 10 Ultimate Rewards Points per $1 spent on hotel and car rental purchases through Chase Ultimate Rewards, 5 points per $1 spent on airline travel purchases through Chase Ultimate Rewards, 3 points per $1 spent on dining and other travel purchases, and 1 point per $1 spent on everything else.

When redeeming points for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards, you'll receive a 50% boost to point value meaning that your points will be worth 1.5 cents each. This is a great alternative redemption if you can't find value transferring points to Chase's partners, but still want to get the most out of your points.

The Chase Sapphire Reserve also offers $300 in annual travel credit, Priority Pass Select Membership, up to $100 towards a Global Entry or TSA PreCheck statement credit, and excellent travel insurance.

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening. That's $900 towards travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is one of the best flexible rewards credit cards in the market. It's a fantastic card for those who are new to dealing with points and miles as well as an excellent card for professionals.

The card earns 5 points per $1 spent on travel purchases through Chase Ultimate Rewards, 3 points per $1 spent on online grocery purchases, select streaming services, and dining purchases, 2 points per $1 spent on other travel purchases, and 1 point per $1 spent on everything else.

Benefits include a 25% boost to point value when redeemed for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards, an annual $50 hotel credit, annual points on your cardmember anniversary, and travel insurance.

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on the card within the first 3 months from account opening. This is worth $750 towards travel when redeemed through Chase Ultimate Rewards.

Chase Freedom Unlimited®

If you want to get the most out of your Ultimate Rewards points, you'll want to consider the Chase Freedom Unlimited® which is a cash back credit card that earns Ultimate Rewards points. The card earns 5% back on the Chase Travel Portal, 3% back on dining at restaurants and drugstore purchases, and 1.5% back on all other purchases.

Points earned with the card can only be redeemed for 1 cent each towards cash back, but you can obtain significantly higher value by transferring those earned points to other Ultimate Rewards credit cards. For example, if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can transfer those points to that card and then either redeem them for 50% more value through Chase Ultimate Rewards or transfer them to Chase's airline and hotel partners.

This gives your points way more value than the standard cash back value of 1 cent and makes the Chase Freedom Unlimited pretty much mandatory in order to maximize your earnings due to the fact it earns 1.5X on miscellaneous purchases versus the 1X earnings of other Ultimate Rewards credit cards

Earn an additional 1.5% cash back on everything you buy, up to $20,000 spent during the first year. This is equal to earning an additional 1.5 points per $1 spent on all purchases which means that you'll be earning anywhere between 3X and 6.5X on your first $20,000 in purchases which is unbeatable value.
