company spending card rewards program transfer
i have about 350,000 rewards points and iv’e been told they will expire by June if i do not use them. do you know of any way to transfer them so i can keep them for future travel..
What program are you using to accumulate these points?
I am using jp morgan corporate rewards program and my company is no longer going to support this program starting in june. so they are saying if i dont use them i loose them .
[USER=1916]@Fonseca[/USER], not familiar with that program. Is it similar to ultimate rewards? Are there any transfer partners?
Here’s what I found in the [URL=’https://www.yourcorporaterewards.com/consumermx/static/page.htm?tsys=cytmTU0xQVUrTG8zdzdyRHp6WnZyK2lkYmdIRVhKbjM1d0d2VjZtenN1MkpXZ0xjWXBJODVLVndnR0pIZ3VGSDdKL1l1bEd1ZjhWcGVudGxQOTc2Z0IvOUxIeUd0eGZ3UFZGRC9VTXBGbTQ’]FAQs[/URL] for this card:
[I]1. Choose from over 2500 redemption items in a variety of categories including travel and adventure, gift certificates and merchandise. In the travel and adventure category, there are two main airline travel redemption options for travel. The first option is a flexible travel purchase option whereby any unrestricted travel ticket can be purchased at a penny per point. Unrestricted tickets do not require advance purchase or Saturday night stay. The second option is the free ticket option which is based on the round trip ticket for 25,000 points. With this option, all tickets must be booked at least 21 days in advance and include a Saturday night stay. A maximum dollar value for the aforementioned ticket option may apply. You can also redeem points for gift certificates for restaurants and retailers; merchandise; hotel stays, car rentals and exclusive items. You can choose from gift certificates to retailers such as Nordstrom’s and Saks Fifth Avenue; merchandise like a satellite radio system or widescreen television; or vacation packages and cruises.[/I]
[I]7. Travelers have ultimate flexibility to purchase virtually any ticket at a cost of a penny per point or they can potentially save points if their travel plans are more flexible and they can purchase the tickets 21 days in advance with a Saturday night stay. The second free ticket option is to purchase a round trip airfare for 25,000 points though tickets must be booked at least 21 days in advance and include a Saturday night stay. A maximum dollar value for the aforementioned ticket option may apply. En route stopovers are not permitted unless to make direct connections. What is critical on this rewards program is that neither travel option has the capacity restrictions common in airline programs that make such programs so difficult to utilize.[/I]
So it sounds like the points are redeemed for revenue tickets where you’ll earn miles for each flight. But it doesn’t sound like you can transfer the points to a frequent flyer (or hotel) program.
