Have enough chase points for a return ticket to Turkey. But if I transfer to Hyatt, the points are worth an extra $350. But I'll have to buy the ticket with cash. Can't decide what to do. Any help?

Or transfer to United and book the ticket for 60,000 RT.

The Hyatt points are only worth anything if you have a use for them...

how much are we talking, exactly? how much do you save by getting a ticket in points vs cash?

I explain below. Even though transfer to Hyatt is 1:1, Hyatt points are worth more than chase points. I will spend nearly 75,000 points on the flight. The differential in points value adds up to more or less $350

What would be the total expense (flight+ hotel) for each option? Compare that number to pick an option

How are the points worth an extra $350 if your transfer to Hyatt? That’s confusing. Let’s assume the ticket to Turkey is $1000 or 75,000 Chase points. You can transfer those to 75,000 points to Hyatt at a 1:1 worth approximately $1275. But you would also earn points / status on your flight to Turkey. Assuming 10,000 miles RT that’s probably another $120 in miles. So you’re out like $150 assuming $1000 ticket. This also doesn’t include any status perks you may get from buying the flight

The ticket is around $900 and buying it through Chase portal gives a redemption of 1.25c/point. I could transfer the points to Hyatt 1:1 and each Hyatt point is worth ~1.7c or more. I don't see myself flying Turkish airlines again so not really putting any value on the miles. But you are right, if I consider that, then I'm potentially losing more than $350

Look at the United website to see what the mile redemption looks like. If it’s better than the cash equivalent redemption in the Chase portal, then transfer the points to United 1:1. If you end up deciding to book the ticket with cash, put in your United number so the points credit that account
