About Chase Credit Cards, Flying Caps and Waivers

It is a known fact that you can sell Chase Ultimate rewards points or sell frequent flyer miles to onboard Southwest Airlines or some of the other air carriers, to which Chase are partners with. Anything that sells like hotcake online can be redeemed for cash or be transferred to book flight tickets or a hotel room. That said, the new 5/24 rule of Chase has put a minimum five per cardholder cap, and if any cardholder applies for a sixth one, Chase may turn down the applicant.

You may own a Chase Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, and Ink Cash Business card, but the 5/24 cap would ensure no one takes advantage of sign-up bonuses with more than five cards. Moreover, flyers of Singapore Airlines, British Airways, or Air France can hold the Ultimate Rewards Points Cards to transfer points.

Chase has recently introduced two new cards, namely Sapphire Preferred and Ink Plus Business, with ultimate bonus points of 100,000 and 80,000 points respectively on sign-up. A new Chase credit card would increase the FF points tally and help earn a spot in the Southwest Rapid Rewards points needing 110, 000 points, hence the 5/24 cap.

Credit cards are a paperless payment mechanism, and for British Airways Avios, a flyer needs to chase the British Airways Visa Signature Card. If flying is not the need of the hour for you, try chasing a Marriott Rewards Premier card and dine in an elegant Marriott Hotel. In fact, being selective about the credit cards and being tactical about payment modes would ensure you are in a flexible space, always.

What about transferring airline reward points from one carrier to the other? Transferring FF points ensures flyers will not be stuck in a quagmire of “having FF points in abundance, but not being able to use on an airline carrier since mine is not listed.”

The Chase Freedom card gives consumers a sign-up bonus point of up to 15,000 with zero annual waivers even as the cardholder remains unable to transfer points to other airline carriers. With Chase credit card, one could take domestic flights with United Airlines as well.
