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.
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.
