I received a promo from Hilton Rewards that offers 1250 points for taking a survey. You listed a number of options to maintain points, but a survey was not on the list. Before I send info, is it legit?
Did the correspondence you received about the survey come directly from Hilton?
It looks like the calculation is off for United Miles. Shouldn’t 60,000 Marriott points give 27,500 United miles? The calculator is showing 27,000 miles (at least in my web browser).
You will receive 27,500 United miles. It displays as 22,000 miles initially. However, you’ll receive a 15,000 Marriott point bonus transferred to United at the 3:1.1 ratio, which means you’ll receive 5,500 miles on top of your 22,000 miles for a total of 27,500 United miles. Thanks for reading.
What are my transfer options for 200,000 Avios
Thanks for reading. This tool is designed for transfers from flexible rewards points to airline miles, not the other way around.
Generally, these transfers can only be in one direction, so you’re mostly out of luck if you want something else from your Avios. You can redeem Avios for some fabulous airplane tickets though, even in business and first class! Find out more by reading this guide:
Hi, what’s the best way to maximize my points transfer from Marriott Bonvoy and Ultimate Rewards to redeem for Cathay Pacific flights? It’s 3:1 ratio from Marriott Bonvoy to Cathay and there’s not a direct transfer option from Ultimate Rewards to Cathay. What would you recommend? Thank you!
Have you seen our post on the best ways to book Cathay Pacific First Class? I think you will find it very useful!
I’m planning to book business class flight lax to cdg using miles. I have 135K miles. I need 2 tickets so what is the most cost-effective approach? 1) booking an upgradable economy ticket and then upgrading using miles? 2) booking one business class and purchasing one business class ticket?
In order to best help you out with this, could you tell me what type of miles you’re planning to use?
Love the calculator. Thanks so much!
FYI, the Citi transfer value to JetBlue needs to be updated. It is currently: Citi Chairman®, Prestige®, PremierSM Cardmembers
1,000Points =1,000 TrueBlue points
Citi ThankYou® Preferred, Citi Rewards+SM Cardmembers
1,000Points = 800 TrueBlue points
Thanks for pointing out that distinction! We will get that figure updated!
Where did it go? I just see a picture now, no tool or link.
Apologies for the delay! We’ve been undergoing a few updates to the site recently – but the tool is back now!
Does Chase Ultimate Rewards still transfer to Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, or the OneWorld group?
The only Oneworld airlines that Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to are British Airways and Iberia.
Does transferring points from an American Express credit card help us for upgrading our airline membership status with British airways/one world?
Unfortunately, it does not. Transferring Amex Membership Rewards points to British Airways will simply give you more Avios that you can redeem for flights, but it will not have any impact on your status level.
I was looking to purchase a business class flight from MIA to Kenya. I have United points I planned on using, but I’m interested in the transfer points option to maximize the most points especially since I need 2 tickets. How can I can search for the airline that uses the least amount of points?
United miles are not able to be transferred to another airline program. Do you have any transferable points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or Amex Membership Rewards?
What would be the best way to use AMEX points to obtain business class one way tickets from Dubai to Singapore and Istanbul to NY? Thanks!
That would largely depend on the award availability for the dates you want to travel. But generally speaking, your best option for tickets between Dubai and Singapore, and Istanbul to NYC, would be using the ANA Mileage program to fly Star Alliance carriers, assuming you are planning to book roundtrip tickets.
Are all chase ultimate rewards points the same? (sapphire, freedom, freedom flex)?
Ultimate Rewards points earned from your Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve card can be transferred to airline and hotel transfer partners. They can also be redeemed through the Chase Travel Portal with a 25% and 50% bonus, respectively. If you hold both a Chase Sapphire Preferred/Reserve and one of the Freedom cards you can pool these points together to use transfer partners or use the Travel portal bonus, but those options are not avaiblable if you only hold a Freedom card.
Thank you for your response. As for Capital One, which credit cards are useful for transferring points? Quick silver?
There are 5 Capital One cards that earn transferable Capital One miles, they are the Capital One Venture X card, the Capital One Venture card, the Capital One VentureOne card, the Capital One Spark Miles card, and the Capital One Spark Miles for Business card.
Hello, First thank you for this wonderful tool. We are looking to fly one way from San Francisco to Rome Italy next month. I have over 400,000 AMEX points. There are three of us and I’d love to fly the next business or first class option available. This will be my first attempt at award travel. Do you have any suggestions for me?
We’ve put together a guide on some of the best ways to fly to Italy with points and miles that should help you out here. Keep in mind that there aren’t any direct flights between San Francisco and Rome so you will need to connect. Given that, positioning out of other major airports will be helfpul when looking for award space. Safe travels!
Hello, I have 150k points from AMEX, and I’m planning to book a business class flight from Washington DC to CDG, what is the most cost-effective approach?
Your best option would likely be transferring to Air France and booking at the saver space level, which should cost you roughly 52k points and $200 in fees one-way.
