CSP Points to Southwest

Postby darkguy2 » Tue Jan 06, 2015 2:01 am

I am currently planning a two week vacation next summer and plan on going to two cities for each a week. So, I got the CSP for the travel points. If I try to book it through UR then it comes to about 45K in points, but if I go to the Southwest site and book a similar trip it comes to only 28K. That is a crazy drop in price. Anyone else used your UR points with Southwest? Another perk is that I get two checked bags free with Southwest.
Discover IT - $5,700
Chase Freedom - $5,700
Costco Citi - $13,000
Sallie Mae - $4,000
Chase Sapphire Preferred - $6,000
Chase Sapphire Reserve - $19,500
Citi Double Cash - $6,500
Amex BCE - $13,000

FICOs: Discover (777), SallieMae (764), Amex (767), Citi (772)
FAKOs: CK- TU (760), EQ (760)

That's why the general recommendation is that maximum value comes from transferring. There may be some cases where the UR portal offers a better deal but it's not the trend.

So transfer the points and redeem with Southwest. UR to RR is at a 1:1 rate.
