You can use your Chase points to book Air Tahiti Nui flights by logging into your Chase Ultimate Rewards account online page. Once logged in, you can search for the flight you want to book under the "Travel" section. Air Tahiti Nui is one of the many airlines you can book flights on with Chase points.
Unfortunately, Air Tahiti Nui isn't listed as a Chase transfer partner, so you can't transfer points to the program.
There are 13 airlines you can use with the Chase Sapphire credit cards: Aer Lingus, British Airways, Emirates, Flying, Iberia, JetBlue, Singapore Airlines, Southwest, United Airlines, and Virgin Atlantic. You can also book flights through all three major airline alliances: Oneworld airlines, SkyTeam airlines and Star Alliance airlines.
Redeem Points Through Ultimate Rewards. You can book flights on pretty much any major airline directly through the Ultimate Rewards website. This option allows you to charge part of the flight to your card if you don't have enough points to cover the full fare.
Transfer Points to a Travel Partner. A majority of Chase's travel rewards partners are airlines. So if you belong to one of their loyalty programs, you can transfer your Ultimate Rewards points to that program and combine them with the miles/points already in that account for redemption. Transfers are done at a 1:1 ratio.
Get Cash Back. You can always redeem your Chase Sapphire points for a statement credit and use the savings to pay for your plane ticket, wherever you book it. Bear in mind that you need at least 2,000 points to redeem for cash, and your points are worth 25% more when redeemed for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards.
Simply Pay with Your Sapphire Card. The most obvious of your options doesn't really involve rewards, but it's nevertheless worth noting that both Chase Sapphire cards can be used to purchase airfare directly from airlines, travel-comparison sites, etc. Besides, paying for a plane ticket could help you reach either of the Sapphire cards' initial spending requirements, thereby earning you a lucrative initial bonus.
Making purchases with any Chase rewards credit card will earn you rewards points that you can use for travel. Chase only offers credit cards with points, even though some of them are marketed as being cash back cards. Chase points are worth up to 1.5 cents each when redeemed for travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal. Most Chase rewards points are worth 1 cent each. But with the … read full answerChase Sapphire Preferred® Card, your points are worth 1.25 cents each when redeemed for travel through Chase. And with the Chase Sapphire Reserve® card, they’re worth 1.5 cents each.
Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders earn 2 points / $1 spent on travel and dining, and 1 point / $1 on all other purchases. The Chase Sapphire Preferred has a $95 annual fee. Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders have a slightly higher rewards rate at 3 points / $1 spent on travel and dining (with the same 1 point / $1 on all other purchases). Chase Sapphire Reserve’s annual fee is $550. The Sapphire cards also let you transfer points directly to Chase’s airline and hotel partners.
Besides the Sapphire credit cards, Chase has several co-branded travel cards whose points can easily be redeemed for hotel nights, flights, and other travel purchases. One such card is the Marriott Bonvoy Bold™ Credit Card, which gives 3 points / $1 for all Marriott Bonvoy hotel purchases and 2 points/dollar on all other travel-related purchases. The card has a great signup bonus of 30,000 points for spending $1,000 in the first 3 months. Even better, the Marriott Bonvoy Bold has a $0 annual fee.
The IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card is another good travel points credit card from Chase. It has a massive signup bonus of 150,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. Cardholders also earn up to 10 points / $1 on IHG hotel purchases and 2 points per dollar on gas, groceries, and restaurant purchases. Although the card has an annual fee of $0 intro 1st yr, $89 after, the rewards can more than cover that if you frequent IHG hotels – especially since you’ll get a free night after each account anniversary.
While Chase has many great rewards credit cards, the Chase Sapphire cards and co-branded hotel cards reward you the most for travel purchases.
