CSP UR: using Hotels.com to book flights (3x)

Postby Cheezer » Thu May 15, 2014 8:45 pm

First post here,

I'm aware that booking travel through Chase UR travel portal gives me 2x & 1x, and additional 1x using either Travelocity or Orbitz.

I want to use Hotels.com (3x) just for flight reservation, under Packages and Flights (you can just use it for flights if you choose).
The problem for me is when I use this part, the site keeps on kicking me out and won't let me register back on. I called their helpline and they said I can only get credit for hotel and call them after I made the reservation, but no help with flights.

As for Chase, I'm not sure if I can get credit for flights since its only a hotel site.

So in theory I can get 2x, 1x, 3x to book flights (if I can figure this all out)

CSP is 2 points per dollar on all travel expenses. When you book travel through UR Chase awards the 2x points for travel plus an additional 1x per dollar for using UR. As far as I understand, using any other travel site (eg: hotels.com) will yield only the 2x points for travel as you are not booking through UR.

Is your post referring only to Chase UR points or to UR and some other loyalty points?

IIRC the extra point for booking through UR only applies to travel booked via the "Travel" section and not the "Earn Faster" section.

For all offers in the "Earn Faster" section of the UR portal you can always click on "Learn More" for the details on the offer. For Hotels.com (emphasis added):
3 extra pts/$ at Hotels.com

Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site. Not eligible until reservations have been fulfilled. Not eligible on the purchase of travel packages, flights, or cars. Eligible on lodging only. Cancelation voids eligibility, even if non-refundable.
