Heading to Japan in April. Best use of points.

Heading to Japan in April. Best use of points.

  1. Mauricio

    Hi All:

    Have about 200k in chase reward points for a trip to japan. It would be a single ticket. How can i max my reward points on a flight? Beyond just booking through chase i have never ventured through the process of transferring my point for use in other programs. Thanks for all of your help its greatly appreciated.

    Welcome [USER=4472]@Mauricio[/USER] – I assume you’re based in North America? I’d look for availability on ANA flights. You can use United’s site to do that. Once you’ve found the award space, compare the number of miles that UA wants vs. how much Singapore Airlines wants and transfer your points to the appropriate airline.

    If, like me, you don’t live in a US gateway city so you have to connect, first look for award space between Tokyo and US gateway cities like LAX, SFO, SEA, ORD, IAH and then look for connections between those cities and your home airport, even if it’s in coach. Then you can figure out where to transfer your miles most efficiently. If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

    Youre also able to use Korean Air – they have a nice First and Business Class. Also, because theyre in SkyTeam, you have access to their partners as well, most notably China Airlines via Taipei, who have a great J product.

    Thanks everyone so far for your input. I should add i would be flying out of the NYC. So all airports are an option in the area. How would the transfer portion work?

    Here’s a post Travis wrote last year about transferring to United. The principles hold across airlines: [URL]https://onemileatatime.com/transfer-chase-points-united/[/URL]

    I believe transferring thebpoints to Virgin Atlantic for an ana roundtip will be your best option. Ie use the VA award chart.
