Chase Ultimate Rewards Transfer bonus

+18 Deal Score
16,811 Views
I pulled this from one of my favorite credit card blogs (Million Mile Secrets).

Chase has just issued its first Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer bonus. With it, you can earn a 30% bonus for transfers to British Airways Avios points.

Through June 16, 2019, you'll get a 30% bonus when you transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to British Airways Avios points. The standard transfer ratio is 1:1 (in 1,000-point increments) so with this bonus, you'll get 1,300 British Airways Avios points for every 1,000 Ultimate Rewards points you transfer.

It's worth noting that the bonus is being processed by British Airways, not on Chase's side, so you'll only see the bonus Avios points once you're signed into your British Airways account. Luckily, Ultimate Rewards points transfers to British Airways Avios points are instant. And you can take advantage of the transfer bonus as many times as you'd like before the offer's expiration date.

Using British Airways as the actually airline is almost pointless to me. I have to end up using their partners like AA.

Bowtie and Emily are the cancer killing points and miles. Worst blogger by far, even worse then that hack that scammed United, got banned for life, and now conspicuously avoids writing about UA

That's kind of the entire trick to Avois. They offer outstanding value on partner airlines since they're still distance based rather than revenue based, and the partner awards let you avoid the insane fuel charges for flying BA metal through Heathrow.

I could never recommend using Avios unless you're a solo flyer. Extremely difficult to find tickets when flying with family.

For business class it's rare to find more than 2 on the same flight... for coach I frequently find 7 at a time available on AA domestic flights for example.

New Chase user here, I've got about a years worth a points and 3 bonuses, so have racked up quite a few, but now trying to make sense of trying to use them.

So you can transfer to British Air for the bonus and then transfer to another partner, like I see AA mentioned, to use them there?

You can't transfer from BA once transferred too from chase.

You can then book via BA partners based upon availability. AA is one of them. It's the one world alliance. Take a look at those airlines.

Nice deal. Thanks, OP. Avios flights on AA many times require fewer miles so this works out quite well.

Quick question for someone who knows. If I book a flight using Avios on AA, would I still get first free bag checked free if I have AA Platinum card? If I book directly on AA using their miles I do but wasn't sure if the booking is from a partner site.

As long as you have your AA number linked to the BA booking, you will get the free bag. It doesn't require you to actually pay with the card.

And if for some reason you forgot to link your aa card in the booking, simply call AA to link it.

Pretty simple

It will actually be the BA number linked to the booking, because the flight is with Avios miles. Not sure how you link AA number to an Avios booking. To complicate it, flights are shown as BA codeshare, and if I remember correctly, codeshare flights may not get free checked bag.

Can't recall. All I know is I forgot to add mine to the BA booking and I called AA to link my AA number and got free bag.

So yes it can be done

Thanks. That's great to know. I am assuming your booking was using Avios miles.
