Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase, has added a new partner to its Ultimate Rewards points program. MileagePlus Holdings, a subsidiary of United Continental Holdings, has joined the program to offer Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Plus and Ink Bold cardholders the option to transfer Ultimate Rewards points to MileagePlus accounts for travel.

This new addition builds on Chase's existing travel partnerships, which include Amtrak, British Airways, Continental Airlines, Marriott and more.

One Ultimate Rewards point equals one MileagePlus award mile, and there are no restrictions or limits on the number of points Chase cardholder can transfer for travel miles. Customer can redeem the points they transfer for award travel on United Airlines or any member of the Star Alliance network.
