Purchase an Ikon Pass with points though Chase

Chase has made it possible to purchase an Ikon Pass with points through Chase Experiences. The annual ski season pass, which is currently on sale for more than $1,000, is good at 40 different ski resorts around the World.

With Chase Experiences, Chase is offering the Ikon pass for $949 or 94,900 Chase Ultimate Rewards. While getting just $1 per point isn’t great value, having another option to purchase a season ski pass with points is a nice option.

Chase Experiences has three tiers: Select, Preferred and Reserve. Preferred and Reserve are for those with Chase Sapphire Preferred/Chase Ink Business Preferred and Chase Sapphire Reserve/JP Morgan Reserve cardmembers.

For this offer, it appears that it is available to those with Preferred and Reserve access.

Ski passes are typically outrageous in terms of cost. The retail for the Ikon Pass right now is $1,049, so even the cash rate through Chase Experiences is a nice discount. The Ikon Pass also has a cheaper version called the Ikon Base Pass which has access to fewer resorts, but that is not available through Chase Experiences.

You can purchase an Ikon Pass with points or a cheaper cash rate through Chase Experiences.

I received an email in my inbox from Chase about a number of experiences – the Ikon Pass being one of them.

Once you click “Purchase Experience” you will receive a confirmation code with a promo code. After that, you will then use that promo code to actually purchase the Ikon Pass through the Ikon Pass website.

You will add your confirmation code in the “Apply Promos” area. Your pass will be mailed to you in October.

Final Thoughts

While getting just one per dollar isn’t a great deal, it’s nice that using points to purchase a ski pass is an option. There are cheaper ways to get ski passes by taking advantage of early-bird discounts or more local passes, but it’s cool to see Chase offering this as an option.
