Through Thursday, March 25th, you can save 20% off award flights using code “SAVENOW”.

While generally I don’t advise transferring Chase points to Southwest because often you could do just as well booking in the Chase portal and still earn Rapid Rewards.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

However, with this sale, the math changes quite a bit, and you would almost certainly come out ahead by transferring your Chase points to Southwest rather than making a portal booking. You should be able to get around 2 cents per Chase Ultimate Rewards point in value.

The only catch is that travel needs to be completed by April 30th, 2021. With prices ramping up in a “kind of close to” post-COVID world, it’s understandable they would position this for tickets in the near term only.

If you already have a flight booked, remember you can cancel those flights and rebook with the code. Just double check availability and price first!

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
