The great thing about Chase Ultimate Rewards is how versatile and valuable they are: Chase points are effectively a “hybrid” currency. You can cash them out for 1 cent each. You can use them for paid travel at a value of 1.25 or 1.5 cents each. Or you can transfer them into airline miles or hotel points when those programs offer more value. There’s no reason to transfer those points to an airline or hotel program where they will be stuck and can be devalued. You should only transfer them on demand when you can get a great value for the transfer. … [Read more...] about This Is Why You Should Have A Chase Ink Cash Card: Earning 5 Ultimate Rewards Points Per Dollar On Amazon And Everyday Spending

That means this … [Read more...] about Last Chance To Earn 60,000 Points With The Chase World Of Hyatt Card; Roundup Of Hyatt’s New Milestone Earning Thresholds
One easy and free method that works with many programs is to book an award flight or hotel night and then cancel it. Be sure that the airline allows for free cancellations on award flights or the hotel allows for free cancellations before doing this. Note that this will extend miles in many, though not in all programs. It has worked for me with British Airways, United, and IHG, among others. If you have transferable points you can move points from programs like AMEX, Barclays, Capital One, Chase, Citi, or Marriott to an airline to keep your entire account alive. Note that some airlines require the name on the Marriott account to match the name on the airline account. You can transfer Marriott points to other members and from there transfer points to an airline. Another easy way to extend your miles is by redeeming a few hundred miles for a magazine subscription. Redeeming miles is safer than the various methods of earning miles, as point earnings don’t always post and it can … [Read more...] about All About Mileage Expiration And Transfer Options For 57 Loyalty Programs: Keep Points From Expiring And Bring Them Back To Life!
Comparison to previous signup bonuses The previous Chase Hyatt card offered 40K signup points, so this is a 50% increase from that offer. Before then the older card offered 2 free nights upon signup, but 60K points is far more valuable than that. The 2 free nights expired after just one year, but the 60K points will never expire as long as you have any activity in your Hyatt account every 24 months. Plus while 60K points can be used for 2 free nights at any Hyatt, it can also be used for a dozen free nights at cheaper Hyatt hotels or for other awards, like suite award nights or points+cash awards. Hyatt also allows points to be transferred to any Hyatt member for free! … [Read more...] about Ends Tomorrow!
