10 Responses to Did Chase Really Close a Sapphire Preferred Account for a Transfer among Friends?

  1. Any idea of how Chase is defining Domestic Partner? I’m wondering if they require some type of legal registration or documentation or “pre-clearance” from Chase before making the points transfer.

  2. This is from Chase’s website:

    “You can only transfer points to a frequent travel account belonging to you, your household member or an authorized user or employee.”

    Based on this I believe that Chase does strictly prohibit transferring Ultimate Rewards Points to airline and hotel loyalty program accounts of friends, contrary to your assertion here.

  3. Yes. That’s the question I had. Can I transfer points to my husband’s Ultimate Rewards account…and then transfer all of the points in his account to my own airline account (he doesn’t like to handle travel details).

  4. I think Chase might be looking a lot closer at transfer transactions. After reading the thread on FT last week I transferred UR from my spouse to myself. Transaction went thru automatically. However, I then transferred the points to my UA account. In the past they seemed to post immediately. However this time around the transactions were pending with the next day showing as the date the transfer would occur.

  5. Can chase deny you your already earned points if they cancel your accounts ?

    also can they confiscate your miles transferred .

  6. Au contraire on the UR–>FF account without restriction:
    “You can only transfer points to a frequent travel account belonging to you, your household member or an authorized user or employee.”

  8. “Transfer MAY only be used …” Do you guys understand the meaning “may”–it’s a 50/50 situation, unlike a term “SHALL”.

    • “May” does not mean 50/50 in this case. It’s being used in the sense of “You may only run for president if you are at least 35.” I am confident that Chase’s rules allow transfers only to your own accounts, your spouse’s accounts, or your domestic partner’s accounts.
