If you're looking for help with how to transfer Ultimate Rewards to a spouse or another person in your household, we cover that in our tutorial on how to combine Ultimate Rewards earned with multiple credit cards.

Fortunately, it's simple to transfer your Ultimate Rewards using the Chase website, and most transfers will post instantly to your frequent flyer or hotel loyalty account. Read on for a complete walkthrough of each step.

How to Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards

First, you need to navigate directly to Chase Ultimate Rewards and log in with your Chase credentials.

Pick a Chase Ultimate Rewards Card

If you have more than one Chase credit card, choose the card from which you would like to transfer points. In general, it doesn't matter which card you transfer from. But, if you don't have enough points on one card, you may need to combine your Ultimate Rewards points onto one card and then complete your transfer.

Select “Transfer to Travel Partners”

In the Earn/Use drop-down menu, you need to choose how you would like to use your points. In this case, you'll want to select “Transfer to Travel Partners”. If you have selected a card that is not eligible to transfer points to partners, like the Chase Freedom Flex℠, you will not see this option. Simply go back and choose a card that does offer point transfers.

How to Transfer Ultimate Rewards Points

Choose a Transfer Partner

Choose which airline or hotel program you would like to transfer your points to.

How to Transfer Chase Points

Provide Your Account Information

From the drop-down menu, choose the owner of the frequent flyer account and enter the frequent flyer or hotel loyalty number. If you've previously transferred Ultimate Rewards to the same program, you shouldn't need to fill in the loyalty number again.

Chase Ultimate Rewards Transfer to United

Choose the Number of Points to Transfer

Enter in the number of miles you would like to transfer and make sure that the “Transfer to” information is correct before you press continue. If you're transferring to a program for the first time, we recommend doing a test transfer of 1,000 points (the minimum allowed) before you transfer the total amount you need for your award. Most Chase transfers are instant.

Verify the Details and Confirm

Review and confirm the transfer. Make sure to double and triple check all of the details, because once you have initiated a transfer, you cannot reverse it! That's not the type of lesson you want to learn the hard way.

Once you've sent your test transfer, log into the loyalty program account to verify that the points have posted.

Note: If you are already logged into your frequent flyer or hotel account at the time you press the “confirm & submit” button on the Chase website, you'll need to log out and log back in to the account where you are expecting the points to post. Refreshing the screen won't update your points balance on most loyalty program websites.

If your points posted as expected, you can transfer the full number of points you need for your award.

    Does anyone else find that finding award flights which actually cost less points than paying straight cash or redeeming in the portal? I usually only fly economy, but have seen crazy deals for business/first class. Unless I see those amazing higher end flights for cheap points, then I will continue to fly with economy…

    I did this to my husbands account and it was awesome. It just to prolong the life of his miles and it worked plus gave him some elite credit too. That was a nice surprise. Now this was at least 2 yrs ago. I wonder does United still give elite miles credit if we transfer from Chase? Or was this a fluke thing in my husbands account?

    I’m glad I’ve applied for many of the Chase cards first before getting hit by 5/24. Without having the airline cards though, I’ve yet to find a real good redemption value/availability to transfer my ultimate rewards points to airline miles. However, I’ve been using the sapphire reserve portal for the 1.5x redemption and can’t say I’m unhappy.

    Chase Ultimate Rewards are the most user-friendly program I’ve come across. Transfers are instantaneous and you can transfer to another person if they are a Sapphire cardholder on the same account.

    Are there any partners left who doesnt require name match?

    In my experience with Chase transfer to United mileage, it also took less than 10 minutes to show up.

    I’ve transferred points from Chase to Southwest several times. Each time it was easy and almost instantaneous.

    When booking a British Airlines flight over the phone, they had no problem waiting on the phone line while I transferred the miles over on my computer.

    When I first started this hobby, I remember seeing the quote: “You can never have enough Ultimate Rewards Points”. I completely agree. There’s so many great ways to use them, thanks for this update.

    Chase Ultimate Reward points are my favorite. I find I am transferring to Hyatt when I want to stay spur of the moment and the fact that the transfers are instant is really helpful.

    I have Ultimate Rewards and find it is so simple to transfer them. Love this card.

    Hey thanks for sharing..

    I have transferred Ultimate Reward points to both United and British Airways and the transaction were instantaneous.

    Chase is one of the easiest to transfer points…

  • Avatar

    I really like the fact that most Chase airline transfers post immediately.
    No need to worry about losing an award seat one has in mind while waiting for the transfer to complete.

    As noted above, most, but not all transfers are instant. Last I knew, at least, Marriott took 2 days, IHG had a short processing delay, and SQ “might” take up to 2 days.

    How do you add family members who dont live with you or can you even? My mom never uses her chase points and I would really like to get those off of here but different addresses obviously.

    • Avatar

      You can’t transfer mom’s Chase points to your Chase account. However, if mom wants to let you use them, she can transfer to a frequent flyer program in her name and book a ticket for you. For example, Mom’s Chase > Mom’s United – ticket for you. Hope that helps.

    It’s nice to see an updated post on this! Seeing a guide on how to do something 3 years ago is something worrisome.
