If you haven’t had the Chase Sapphire Preferred yet – or if you’re eligible to get it again – the new sign-up bonus of 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points is worth – at a minimum – $1,000. And really $1,050 because it also comes with $50 of grocery store credits in your first year of account opening.
And how are we getting to that $1,000 figure? Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth 1.25 cents each when you redeem them toward travel through Chase, so 80,000 x 1.25 = $1,000. You can book flights, hotel stays, even cruises through the Chase Ultimate Rewards site. Set your payment to points and 80,000 of them are worth $1,000. 💥
That’s an amazing sign-up bonus on its own. And can be worth soooo much more when you transfer your points to Chase’s travel partners, which include Southwest, United, and Air France.
But the best transfer partner? Wait, lemme start a new section for all that. 😛
