Booking travel with Chase Ultimate Rewards just got better after it was announced that Chase has partnered with Expedia to run their Ultimate Rewards travel portal.

Can You Book Low Cost Carriers With Chase, Citi, or Amex Points?

While the price of revenue tickets with low-cost carriers is small enough to justify paying cash, you can also use points and miles to book award flights. Some you can book directly through the respective travel portals, others need to be booked over the phone, and if all else fails, you can redeem points as a statement credit against tickets purchased directly from the airline.
