I have an award ticket on hold with United that expires at 6PM Today. And My United.com balance is 937 miles.
Never fear – Chase Ultimate Reward transfers to United are instant. This is what makes Chase points so valuable – you can transfer them to many airlines and hotels, and it is often instant. Other transfers are instant too, as noted by this great analysis by Million Mile Secrets.
So I logged into my Chase account, put in my United MileagePlus number and first and last name, and voila – The points appeared on United.com after I logged out and logged back into my account.
