There was exciting news yesterday in the transferrable points world when Chase announced Air Canada Aeroplan as a new Ultimate Rewards (UR) transfer partner.
This is pretty great news for anyone looking to book Star Alliance flights such as United as Aeroplan offers great value with fixed award pricing. Aeroplan currently has a strong transfer partner with American Express Membership Rewards (MR) but having an additional avenue to earn and transfer points from is always a good thing.
Additionally Chase teased the release of a new co-branded card and offered an additional 10k point bonus through a pre-registration. I’m interested to see what they come out with on this new card.
More transfer partners is always a good thing as it offers more opportunities for redemption of our points. Transferrable point currencies are a paramount strategy and offer excellent value once mastered. To help with understanding all of the options we maintain a Transfer Partner Matrix which has been updated with this recent change.
