Best use of Chase UR points?

Best use of Chase UR points?

  1. Luis

    Ben, have you written a post about the best uses for Chase UR points like you’ve done w/ Amex reward points? I’ve managed to rack up quite a bit of UR points thanks to the Ink and CSP cards and wondering what the best uses are for the points. Hyatt doesn’t have many properties I’m really dying to check out and British Airways is not the best for longhaul travel. What are the best uses in your opinion?

    SIngapore air transfers for suites or other premium travel? British air for short haul domestic or european flights. Also transfers to Korean Air. You can also book Korean in First to Hawaii for less than AA charges.

    Korean Air flies to Hawaii with international first cabin from LAX? How many miles do they charge? This would be a great redemption.

    No I shoud clarify you would not fly on Korean to Hawaii. They offer no such service. They have a fix d awa d chart though to Hawaii. That would redeem on delta at a lower cost for the trip in miles than if you booked with delta.

    Nevermind, found the answer. It’s 25k roundtrip for economy and 45k r/t for business in case anyone else is interested.

    I guess this is good in theory. How’s Delta’s award availability to Hawaii?

    I dont know availability. Call Korean and check. Yhey may have different inventory than Delta. (Different being better) I think it is 25/coach 45 FIrst.

    Ceck some of the flyertalk posts maybe in Korean forum about availability

    Delta’s availability to Hawaii isn’t fantastic in first, but it can be okay in coach.

    The easiest way to search is on the Alaska website. Look for Delta-operated award flights [I]only[/I]. Any award space you see should also be available through Korean!

    Thanks Tiffany, but how do I look up Delta operated flights only on Alaska’s website?

    [USER=111]@Luis[/USER] — In the left-hand column of the search results you have the option to only choose Delta flights:

    ah ok, I thought maybe there was a way to filter only Delta flights in the calendar view. So there really is no way to see which days Delta has availability other than just checking each day individually correct?

    Correct. If you want a calendar view, you can use the Delta site to search (a one-way economy flight to Hawaii should be 22,500), and then confirm availability using the Alaska site.
