Best way to accumulate miles for Eva Air?

    Hello, first time doing research on mileage cards for international travel. My family is planning a trip to Taiwan next year and I wanted to accumulate miles to help offset some of the cost. My research shows that it would be best to get a Chase card for the Ultimate Rewards vs Citi's ThankYou points. Does this sound right? Please let me know if there are other options that I ought to be considering. TIA!

    I think you may have it backwards. If you are looking to transfer points to EVA, it looks like Citi is the option (though it looks like the redemption ratio is poor:

    Here is Chase:

    Doesn't look like you can transfer to EVA. Now Chase may still be better if you accumulate UR's and use them to purchase travel through the Chase travel portal. I don't know....
