The Fine Print
- Valid until 10/31/20
Traditionally Chase hasn’t offered any transfer bonuses, but recently we’ve seen some from IHG & British Airways (Chase also has co-branded cards with these partners). At the moment it’s possible to cash out Chase UR points for 1.25-1.5¢ per point via the Pay Yourself Back feature. Southwest points are worth a base of 1.28¢ per point, but that doesn’t include the fees & taxes you don’t pay making them more valuable then this. Even at the base rate with this 20% bonus you’re getting 1.54¢ per point for a single Chase UR towards Southwest flights.
This could make transferring useful, personally think cashing out for 1.5¢ is still the better option. You can find a full list of previous and current Chase transfer bonuses by clicking here.
