Thread Details

Because I'm a relatively new Chase Freedom owner, I didn't really think to do this until recently. I just got 4,000 ultimate rewards points on a $300 purchase from JCPenney by shopping through the Ultimate Rewards portal and using my Chase Freedom card. Pretty good haul! Keep this in mind with holiday shopping.

5x points on department store purchases * $300
8x points for JCPenney through Ultimate Rewards ( *300

=3,900 points!

EDIT: If you just got the CSR bonus and are planning on using those points for a nice trip next year, this is a great way to build onto those through the holiday season. Plus, you can redeem through the CSR portal and get a much higher percentage value. So 4,000 points at cash value is $40 but if you transfer to a travel partner at 2.1 cents per points you're looking at closer to $80 in travel from a $300 purchase.
