Or, consider other cards for 50,000 more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.
Earn 60,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening.
$1,000 toward travel or transfer to United, Southwest, and more.
That's $750 toward travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards® or 1:1 point transfer to leading airline and hotel loyalty programs.
It’s now even easier to use your Chase points for great deals on Delta flights.
Korean Skypass, a transfer partner for Chase Ultimate Rewards points, now lets you book awards for SkyTeam partner airlines like Delta on its website, with no phone calls needed anymore, according to the Dan’s Deals blog.
That lets you take advantage of some good deals on Delta and SkyTeam partner flights like…
There are no fees to change or cancel awards, though once you transfer Chase points to Korean Skypass you can’t transfer them back to Chase.
To search for the SkyTeam awards at the special Korean SkyPass prices just login to a free account on the Skypass website, choose ‘Award Booking,’ then ‘SkyTeam Award,’ and search for flights.
Here’s New York to Honolulu on Delta…
Available for just 25,000 miles roundtrip (compared to 45,000 miles if you booked directly with Delta).
And here’s New York to Johannesburg in Business Class on Air France for 120,000 miles plus about $600 in fees, which aren’t bad considering it’s two overnight flights in Business Class on the way out.
Korean also offers 80,000 mile Business Class awards to Europe, but this is one place it’s not very competitive. You’ll be slapped with over $800 in surcharges on Delta flights to Europe, even though when you book Delta flights using Air France Flying Blue miles (another SkyTeam program that’s a transfer partner with Chase) you won’t pay any surcharges.
