If you have a Chase Freedom or Chase Freedom Unlimited, you can book a hotel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal and earn 5 Ultimate Rewards per dollar spent. [Direct Link] While one point is one cent (cash value), if you use a Chase Ultimate Strategy, you know that these points are potentially worth twice as much. So, this deal can potentially be worth as much as 10% of your purchase toward future travel.
You have to book your hotel in March, as you can see below. But, you can travel anytime after.
Unfortunately, Chase does not allow you to book hotels owned by Disney. So, you can only take advantage of this deal if you want to book a Universal Orlando hotel or a non-Disney hotel near Disney World or Disneyland.
Interestingly, not even the Swan and Dolphin are available, even though they’re owned by Marriott. But, almost every other off-site hotel is listed.
