With holiday season come pricey flight tickets, unless… you know how to make the most of your credit card benefits.

Still, is it more profitable to use rewards points or cashback?

In most cases, using rewards points will be better. You just need to make a calculation to check.

 

Let’s take an example:

Chase-Sapphire-Preferred-banner

You will pay 60,000 United points to go from New York to Paris or 60,000 Chase Rewards Points.

If you buy the same ticket for more than $600 (which is 98% of cases), you are better off using Rewards points.
