I recently passed the anniversary date on my Chase card and the certificate was placed into my account.
Today I got a call from my son who wants to go to San Francisco for a few days over the holiday period and wanted to know if I could spare some points. When I called the Plat line to make a reservation using the category 5 Cert, I was told I couldn't transfer it to another person even though the reservation is being made through my account.
Has anyone found a way around this or is it a solid policy that only the account holder has to use it?
I agree with pp,
I think you'll need to make the reservation for them with points, and keep the certificate for your own use. The only way I know to use the points for your son, would be to transfer the needed points for the stay, through the Platinum line. Or, as another thought, maybe you could use some of your points to buy and send him a gift card?
