The Chase transfer partner that isn’t, but I wish was…again.
It’s been a couple years now since Chase lost Amtrak as a transfer partner. At the time, I wasn’t really that bothered by it. Yes, I’d used Ultimate Rewards to book Amtrak trains before, but it wasn’t something that I regularly did, nor something I aspired towards. Even with that being said, I almost transferred over 25k-30k points the week before the partnership ended just in case. I WISH I HAD. There have been several instances in the past two years that I’d have redeemed points to cruise down to San Diego on the pacific surfliner: it’s a fun trip I’ve done a couple times and it really means that everyone can enjoy the ride down vs driving where the driver has to concentrate. Now, the only good option is to transfer SPG to Amtrak 1:1. There are other ways of accessing the points, but they don’t really give great value like when Amtrak was a partner. So Chase…if you’re reading this – Miles and I vote to strike up that partnership again!
How can you beat <2000 points to travel along the coast in business class…
There are a lot of cross country trips I’m keen on taking, and would be even more so….if I could just transfer over some UR. Like the California Zephyr.
