They transfer 1:1, so yes.


You can also transfer your points on a 1 for 1 conversion to these partner airline and hotel loyalty programs: United MileagePlus, British Airways Avios, Southwest Rapid Rewards, Korean Air Skypass, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, IHG Priority Club, Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards, Hyatt Gold Passport, and Amtrak Guest Rewards.

For example, from 1/9-2/28, there are only three days w/o saver availability. I don't know when lexrj is trying to fly, but it seems pretty open.

What month are you planning on flying, lexrj?


Thanks for help guys, but I've found a decent flight on a dif. date through Chase mall and booked.
San Diego - Copenhagen in November for 70k points - it's a $925 flight.

Don't want to deal with the booking hassle anymore, so I applied for the Arrival World and got initially approved for 12.5k CL but I called in and asked to match my CSP and they bumped me to 15k.
Going to PC my CSP before the AF hit and send it do the socks drawer!

Thanks again guys!

Hmm... So isn't this a fantastic way to go about it? As far as cash back goes isn't 10,000 points equal $100 cash back? So 4,000 points would be like $40? If that's the case why would anybody use points for cash back!?
