If I need a last minute flight from Cleveland (or Chicago, Detroit, Miami, Montreal, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Toronto, etc) to NYC that can cost $500 each way, I can instantly transfer 7.5K points to British Airways to book a short-haul on American with no last minute booking fees. Or if American doesn’t have availability I can instantly transfer 10K points to United for their short-haul award.

If I want to fly in a $25,000 ANA First Class Suite round-trip from the US to Tokyo, I can instantly transfer 110K or 120K points to Virgin Atlantic. That’s a value of up to 23 cents per point.

Alternatively, you can create a Chase Quinfecta by adding the Chase United Explorer card or the Chase United Explorer Business card into the mix. This card also carries a $95 annual fee like the Ink Preferred card, but may be more useful to many people if they don’t need the Ink Preferred’s bonus categories. This card doesn’t earn Ultimate Rewards points, but it makes your Ultimate Rewards points more valuable. Having that card enables you to have access to significantly expanded United saver and standard award space in addition to benefits like 2 free club passes, a free checked bag, a free carry-on bag, and priority boarding, even when you’re on a basic economy fare.
