Chase recently added Emirates as an Ultimate Rewards transfer partner, making for one of the hottest headlines in the points and miles world.

But what's the significance of this move, and why is this addition such a big deal? In this week's episode of "Being The Points Guy," Brian Kelly breaks down just what it means for travelers to be able to book Emirates flights using Ultimate Rewards points. Spoiler alert: Find out how you can take a shower at 35,000 feet up for just $181.70 and 85,000 miles.

However, there are some caveats and fees you'll need to know about booking award flights on Emirates.

If you aren't familiar with the Middle East's Big 3 carriers, this week's episode also gives you a little crash course on what you can expect from the Emirates experience if Chase's new transfer partnership gives you a reason to try out the airline for the first time.
