I have a chase travel credit from a cancelled flight. I would like to use this credit for a more expensive flight. Chase rep and supersviser say I cannot use UR points for fare difference since the credit is directly with the airline. Anyone have luck with using UR points in this scenario? (Flight is with United).

Thanks

I don't think you have a credit with Chase. Your credit is with United and has nothing to do with Chase. Therefore you can't add UR to your United credit

You are correct. Has anyone had any luck being able to combine that credit with UR points?

On another note, if I booked a flight within the past 24 hours with a Sapphire PREFFERED UR points, is there any hope of calling and upgrading to RESERVE and getting chase to honor 1.5 cents redemption? Thanks

Can I upgrade my preferred to reserve and utilize 1.5 redemption and quickly downgrade back to preferred before getting hit with the reserve fee?

What are some of the best uses of Chase points?

In flyertalk.com, one person says that converting Chase points to United points is not a good use.

I want to find good ways to use any reward points for business class travels to Europe and East Asia.

Probably no. Itís  looks like playing with their system. Not a good idea

Technically you can but that's a great way to get on Chase's bad side who is otherwise pretty lenient (vs. AMEX). The general recommendation is to keep any card open for 12 months which includes product changes.

It depends what you need and availability. Only transfer points to a mileage program when you have a specific redemption in mind. You can also use UR points at a 1.5 cpp value if you have a Reserve.
