Transferable Chase Points


Other chase cards also earn Ultimate Rewards points. However many of the cards do not come with the option to transfer the points to airlines or hotels. But you are allowed to transfer those points to your Sapphire Preferred account and use them on travel through Ultimate Rewards at 1.25 cent per point.


Foreign travel


There are no foreign transaction fees if you use the card internationally.
