Coronavirus Help Portal

From everyone at Upgraded Points, we truly hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has created unprecedented times in our world, and travel isn’t something that 99% of us are remotely thinking about and for good reason. So, let’s focus on what’s more relevant and hopefully helpful to you.

This information is largely based on questions, concerns, and feedback from our audience over the past few weeks via email, comments etc. We’ll continually update this as needed.

1. Coping with COVID-19 (Helpful Resources)

Do The 5

2. UP’s New COVID-19 Dashboard

We’ve been working around the clock to put together a one-page summary of how COVID-19 has affected U.S. airlines, which includes information that may really help travelers, such as airline change and cancellation policies. You can check it out here.

3. Getting Access to Credit

For many, getting access to short-term funding is mission critical. It’s safe to say that it’ll be easier to access credit now versus later. If this is relevant to you, we suggest focusing on pre-qualified offers to maximize your chances of getting approved — and avoid any negative impacts (albeit, short-term ones) to your credit by being denied.


Stay safe and healthy,
