    My head is spinning trying to learn how to use points.

    I always fly Avianca to South America. I have mileage accrued in Lifemiles. I have just been given a Chase Sapphire card that states if I spend so much in 3 months, then I will be awarded 60,000 points.

    Can I use those points with my Lifemiles? And how I would I do that? Thank you

    Chase Sapphire earns Chase Ultimate Rewards points. You can transfer them to several different airlines, but not Lifemiles, so you cant combine them together.

    However:

    You can transfer the Chase points to Singapore Airlines or United, both of which can book award travel on Avianca

    Thru Chase's UR travel portal, you can book flights on Avianca, and pay with points. A flight booked with this method will earn you Lifemiles because it's essential a paid ticket.

    You can transfer Chase UR points to several other airlines, including Aer Lingus, AirFrance, British Always, Iberia, jetBlue, Southwest and Virgin Atlantic. Once transferred, you can use the miles to book award flights on those airlines or their partner airlines for travel.

    If you want a credit card that can transfer points to Lifemiles, look into cards that earn points with Marriott Bonvoy, American Express Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and CapitalOne (certain cards only).

    Lastly, Lifemiles has their own US-based credit card that earns Lifemiles directly.

    Welcome @JR Harrison -
    to help make sense of the different kinds of miles & points I'd suggest clicking on the Beginner's Guide (under the Start Here tab at the top of the page)

    You can also check out Ben's YouTube channel. The video covering different types of points & miles can be found here:
