You get miles. Booked a few flights with chase points and got the miles

Using UR points through Chase counts as a revenue fare, so you'll earn points. Doesn't work for hotels because they usually require direct booking

like

Your past and current use of UR sounds like terrible redemptions

like

P1, it's not a horrible use of points, especially if you're getting miles. Also depends on how many points you're holding.

like

I think P1s point is not that you should have transferred to Delta, but that the redemption wasn't worth using the points. Just pay cash. That said, if you're holding onto a ton of points, waiting for a min of 2c/point may not have you using them enough.

You cannot transfer chase points to delta. And I get MQMs for my flight, which is another consideration that I would not get if I booked using delta miles. You can't look just at the valuation to make the choice.

Chase reward points work like cash for airline redemptions. Booking with Delta points net no points.

like

Booked United thru UR twice and got points both times. Maybe try submitting a mileage request to Delta?

like

No. They basically book the flight/hotel through Expedia for you.

Nope no points with delta flight bought by points

SSC1- I have bought flight tickets from Expedia in the past and received points for those! Can you please help me understand what I am missing?

Ah, that's fair. Airlines are different than hotels since they don't expect you to buy through their site. But K1 seems to know.

Not Delta, but I did it on AA and got miles

I just booked with CSR points, and my flights are L and K class, which give miles.

Also, got a $700 flight for just over 40k Chase points, and it would've been about 60k had I used delta miles.

@p2 chase points are worth nearly double delta miles. By point valuation 2.1-2.3 cents per point for UR vs 1.0-1.2 for delta that's a terrible value for your UR

But to each their own I suppose

I think the greatest value is transferring to Hyatt Hotels. Has anyone found value in transfering to miles for airlines?

Keep in mind that UR valuation has flexibility built into it. It's not that you should expect to get that value every time.

Hi! So I received an email from the EY lawyers. They said they have received the notice of approval of my PERM labor certification (ETA form 9089) from the US DOL. And that my priority date is 11/6/2021 in a EB2 visa category. They also told me they submitted my I-140 petition to the USCIS. I just wanted to know how much longer it will take to get my green card. I asked when they will submit the I-485 application and they told me I need to wait to make manager (October 2021)
