Can you transfer UR points to authorized user accounts?

Postby MaxPunishment » Fri Mar 01, 2013 7:23 am

My family and I have a number of Chase cards that we are all authorized users on each other's plans for. For instance, my dad is the primary cardholder of our Chase Ink Bold, I'm the primary holder on Chase Sapphire Preferred and my brother is the primary holder on our Chase Freedom.

Since my dad uses his card for all sorts of business purchases, his account has by far the most UR points, but he also travels the least and doesn't have much use for transferring the points to Chase affiliates like Southwest, United, Hyatt, Marriott, etc

My question is since I'm an authorized user on the Chase Ink card and I helped accumulate a significant portion of those points with some of my own purchases, can I transfer some of those UR points to say my own Marriott account even though I am not the primary cardholder or would this violate Chase's rule that you can only transfer UR points to a spouse or domestic partner?

I would suggest moving the points from your dad's UR account into his Marriott account and make your reservations from there.

The Marriott reservation was just an example (although they're possibly even more strict than Chase about how people use their points), my real goal is to get some of those UR points into my Southwest account since Southwest seems to have the most bang for your buck in terms of points ----> miles

OK, then move the points into your Dad's Southwest account and make your reservations from there.
