Once on the Ultimate Rewards site, choose “Transfer Points to Travel Partners. Other options at the point include to use your miles to book a trip, or redeem for merchandise, but both of those options don’t give you as good of a value for your points as transferring directly to the partner does.

  1. Good stuff… anyone know if points transferred in this way give tier qualifying miles? I.e. if I transfer 100k Chase points to Southwest, will I get a companion pass?

  2. No. Transferring from UR’s to SW does not qualify for companion pass. What I did was get 2 SW cards. One in my name and one on a business card.

  3. I don’t think they have this option on the site anymore. can anyone confirm otherwise? I only see an option to pay myself and get cash. thank you.

  4. Sorry if this seems a little lame but if you transfer points to say, with Korean Air, can you then use those points to book a flight on a Skyteam partner?
