If I book a flight using my UR in chase will I get miles for that flight? (Just using miles instead of cash to book)

why would you ever do this?

You'll get more value by selling your UR and using the cash to pay for a flight.

Could be but not everyone wants to bother selling UR, or the risk of selling.

THAT and possibly that they will GET a boatload of miles from the actual flights.  Some flights are not worth using normal mileage redemption (like with super cheap economy fares to Israel right now).

He's talking about using UR for a revenue ticket through Chase Travel.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I know that's why I said you GET the miles also b/c it is technically a revenue flight.

You will get the same exact miles, whether you book a revenue ticket using UR through chase, or whether you sell your UR and book with cash. I'm not sure what you're saying.

There are a lot of people that will NEVER sell miles for a variety of reasons (I'm one and I know Dan is too) so I was just saying why someone might actually choose to just book through UR travel.  When selling is effectively not an option, this can sometimes makes sense.
