How to earn and redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards points
Chase Ultimate Rewards points are earned by using your Chase branded card on everyday purchases. When you use your Chase card(s), you can also earn points by making purchases on:
- Paid reservations
- Restaurant bookings
- Hotel reservations
Depending on the Chase credit card you use, you can be eligible for a wide range of perks and rewards. All Chase family cards, such as Freedom®, Sapphire® and Ink®, earn points that can be redeemed on the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal.
Accessing the Chase Travel portal
To access the portal, go to the booking platform at www.chasetravel.com or login to your Chase Ultimate Rewards account and go to your Chase credit card’s main dashboard.
Next, click on the “Earn/Use” button where the number of points you have is listed. Choose “Travel” from the options listed, and this will take you to the travel portal.
How to book flights through Chase Travel portal
Rather than making your flight purchases externally, book your flights using the Chase Travel portal so you can get rewards on airfare. To do this, access the travel portal and search for the flight you want. You can filter your search by cost, airline, departure/arrival time and departure airport.
Once you’ve found the flight of your choice, select your option and purchase your flight using your Chase card. If you have Ultimate Rewards points available, you can use them to pay for all or part of your flight, and/or other travel-related purchases.
Booking hotels through the Chase Travel portal
Similar to flights, you can redeem your Ultimate Rewards for hotel reservations. To do this, search by destination to see available hotels. You can narrow your search by filtering for price/amenities/ratings, type of property, number of bedrooms, neighborhood and more.
Select your hotel option, then continue to confirm your booking using your Chase card or redeeming your Ultimate Rewards to help make your purchases.
How to book rental cars, cruises and other types of travel
You can use the portal to book rental cars, activities and other travel-related purchases. To book a cruise line, you need to call directly.
For car rentals, be sure to use the appropriate points connected to your specific card to get additional perks, such as car insurance.
The benefits of booking travel in Chase Travel portal
Travel costs can add up easily, but if you’re using the portal to redeem your points, you are giving your points good use with certain cards. On the other hand, using the portal could also help you earn more points on your purchases. For example, you can get even more points on flights if you book through portal. These points can later be redeemed on your future travels.
