Booked a flight in March with chase points that I cancelled bc if covid (~75k pnts). United told me I needed to re book in a year. I called to see if they could extend, they gave me a voucher for ~$1k that lasts for 2 years. Just got a notification from chase that my flight was cancelled and they refunded all the points. I now see the voucher and the redeemed points on the apps.

Did I get lucky and get to keep both or is chase/United going to realize when I try to redeem one or the other?

You got lucky. Enjoy it. I don't think United will find out, their systems are probably not able to link your $1k travel credit to the chase points refund

Just be sure to report the value of the voucher as a taxable income/gift

That’s a good point, didn’t even think about that. From a quick google I’m seeing that fight vouchers aren’t taxable, but haven’t looked in too deeply. Are you sure they are?
