Hey guys can anyone please help me convert my Chase points possibly to airline miles or some other point system where I can book my flights cheaper. I know there are a lot of sites that buy your points or miles to book for others, but how can I effectively use my own points? I currently have 300,000 Chase points which I can use to book a discounted flight from Chase.com, but is there a way I can possibly convert them to points and use it more effectively? If anyone can help me, it will be very greatly appreciate

Thank you

Booking travel through their site is most cost-effective

Thank you so much for the reply that it's not about the luxury I just have to travel overseas to go to a family member's funeral.

So transfer them to an airline and use the miles for a flight?

What card do you have? Some card cannot be converted to airline miles.

Is it the Chase Ink Business Preferred?

The chase cards that can transfer Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Ink Business Preferred can do 1:1 points transfer to several partners including united, British Airways, Singapore, Southwest, etc.

Many feel that United gives the best value for transferring. I personally transfer mine to British Airways.

To transfer, log in to your chase account, then go to the Ultimate Rewards Portal. Up in the corner, hover over the "Use Points" drop down, and then go to "Transfer to Travel Partners". From there you can transfer to your frequent flier accounts in 1000 point intervals. You do need to open an account with the desired airline before transferring.

Without knowing when and where you want to travel (to and from), I can't tell you which airline or method is best.
