I just got back from a quick 4 day trip to Panama which included a night at a beachside resort, a night in Panama City and a night at a resort in the rain forest near the canal. And I only paid $62.50 out of pocket for my flight! Here is how I did it.
- I had received 40,000 Ultimate Rewards points from the sign on bonus for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. I had to spend $3,000 within 3 months to get the bonus.
- I priced out a trip from Miami to Panama on British Airways.com and saw that it was 20,000 Avios round trip plus $62.50 in taxes.
- I transferred 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points to my British Airways Avios Account online via my Chase Ultimate Rewards account.
- It took a few minutes to transfer the points to British Airways but then I was able to book my flights on British Airways web site!
