From now until December 9th, you can transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards [Guide] points to Avios (British Airways, Iberia, or Aer Lingus) with a 30% transfer bonus. 

i.e. Transfer 10,000 Ultimate rewards and receive 13,000 Avios.

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

Pretty great deal, especially if you just got the 80,000 point Chase Sapphire Preferred bonus (which doesn’t seem to have quite ended as planned as of post time)- which could be stretched into 104,000 Avios!

Each Avios program has its own sweet spot. For instance, you can fly from East Coast cities to Madrid on Iberia in Business Class for 34,000 Avios each way off peak.

The most popular use is for short-haul flights on Oneworld airlines using British Airways Avios – for example in the US on American Airlines, in Australia on Qantas, in Japan on JAL or in Europe on British Airways, Iberia, or Finnair.

If you have questions about how to use Avios, comment below or ask us in the MilesTalk Facebook group.

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.
