Confused about Chase CC points and transferring to United Mileage Plus..

Jump to last reply

I'm very new to accruing points and miles... and very, very confused about how the United Mileage Plus membership works and how to use any accumulated and/or transferred miles.
Not getting any straightforward answers on the United site.

Here is my situation:
I'd like to purchase 3 flights to France and back (open-jaw from Chicago to Paris, then from Marseilles to Chicago) in late March/early April.
I also plan to get premium economy seats.

I have a little over 100,000 points currently on our Chase cc.
I have the option of booking a flight on the Chase Rewards site and using points toward the overall purchase, or -
I can transfer points, 1:1, to our United Mileage Plus membership.

I just signed up for the latter. Also found out that husband already is a member, but he currently only has 818 miles. He's been using this for work.

So, I know I can transfer the Chase points to United, but - what happens when I do?
Can I use those points toward paying for flights, or do I have to wait to have so many points to get an "award" flight? I hope that makes sense...
So, in summary, I can transfer up to 100,000 points right now to United - what could I do with those if I do?

Thanks so much for any help and suggestions! And I hope this made sense!
