Award Redemption Chase UR Transfer to IHG

    I heard from some people that have transferred Chase UR points to IHG that if you are a status member of IHG (like if you have the Chase IHG card), you will not be given any of your benefits on an award stay. Is that necessarily true? I'm confused why someone would not be given the platinum status benefits even if it is an award redemption. If so, would it be better to transfer to World of Hyatt since the points value is higher there?

    IHG doesn't honor elite benefits on award stays, and I would personally never transfer Ultimate Rewards points to IHG.
