800k chase points to transfer in 30 days
Good morning! Due to a screwup with Chase that I won’t be fighting I have one month to transfer out 800k chase points. Any thoughts where to send? I guess I will send a lot to United and some to flying blue. I don’t have an Amex but I do have around 300k Citi points.
I have a lot of lifemiles that I use a lot.
maybe some to Virgin Atlantic?
I’m based in Chicago and use most of my points for premium cabins overseas.
maybe some kris flyer ?
Wherever you choose to transfer, be sure to first check the expiration policy. In some programs the miles expire after x-number of months, regardless of whether or not there is activity in the account.
Personally I would likely pick Hyatt, since this is a unique transfer to Chase and definitely one of the most valuable (unless you already earn tons of Hyatt points organically). Most other airline transfers are available through Amex/Citi, and United is pretty much useless these days especially if you use LifeMiles.
Thanks all valid and helpful points! I dont use hotel points much tbh. Ill have to take a look.
United sometimes needed to fill in the gaps with lifemiles.
Do united miles expire? Ill have to look
Hey Mick, United miles are safe!
Thats a very helpful table thanks Ricky
A second vote for Hyatt. They’ve already announced what the variable pricing will be once it goes into effect and it still leaves plenty of room for value. Besides, it’s just nice to know you’re going to have solid places to stay on your trips — and you will have several– and isn’t it simply fun to look forward to the tricked out bathrooms after a busy (sweaty?) day of sightseeing. Also, Hyatt has much better award availability than what most airlines offer. Best travels whatever you decide.
