UP launches online tool for travel points, miles maximization

Austin, Texas-based UpgradedPoints.com (UP) has launched an online tool that shows consumers where and how to transfer their travel points and frequent flier miles, and provides redemption options to achieve the most value from them, the company said.

The new transfer partner tool works for Chase Ultimate Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and SPG points.

To use the tool, consumers simply type in their number of points and select the correct type from the drop-down menu. Based on the user´s inputs, the tool generates a table showing all the pertinent information on one page in an easily comprehensible format. Each column can even be sorted alphabetically or numerically to help consumers understand the range of what´s available.

The UP team anticipates continued rapid growth throughout 2017. The site will be doubling its content library, as well as introducing new sections and features in the coming months.

UpgradedPoints.com, launched in March 2016, offers insights on the travel points and frequent flier miles industry.
