Chase Ultimate Rewards® points for Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card cardholders are incredibly useful because you can transfer them to real airline miles with United MileagePlus®, Southwest Rapid Rewards, British Airways Executive Club, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, Korean Skypass, and Singapore KrisFlyer.

But that doesn’t mean you’re limited to using your points to fly 6 airlines.

In fact, you can use your points to book awards on over 100 airlines because of all the partner airlines each program has.

They can be hard to keep track of, so we’ve compiled a list of just about every airline you can book with Ultimate Rewards transfer partners.

The list includes what program to transfer to, what sites are good for checking award space, and general guidelines on how flexible each option is for stopovers and open jaw routings. We also have some color on which options let you avoid fuel surcharges and links to award charts so you can see how much an award will cost.

A note about Avios. Chase points transfer directly into British Airways Executive Club Avios, but there are two other programs that use Avios – Iberia Plus and Avios.com. Some airline partners are only available with the other flavors of Avios. But that’s not a problem – you can transfer to and from each Avios flavor any time. The helpful British Headforthepoints blog has a primer on how to move around between them. Avios are also ‘distance based’ so you need to pay a separate number of points for each flight that’s part of your trip. This can save you points on nonstop trips, but cost you many more if your trip involves connecting flights.

Before you transfer. Remember that transfers out of Chase points into airline partners can’t be reversed. So be sure you want to book an award with a partner before you do the point transfer. And make sure you enter the right partner account number. If you send your points to the wrong airline account, you generally can’t move them to another one with the airline, though some will do it for a fee.
