Citi Thank You Points

Citi only allows members with Chairman, Prestige, or Premier cards to transfer points. JetBlue is an exception noted below. For those with one of these cards, all transfers are 1:1 and need a minimum 1000 points to transfer.

Citi doesn’t have any hotel transfer partners. That may sound bad, but hotel points are often worth less than airline points making them a generally bad transfer unless you have a good promotion. They make up for this with plenty of airline partners that you cant get anywhere else.

Citi Airline Partners

  • AeroMexico
  • Air France
  • Avianca
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Emirates
  • Etihad
  • EVA Air
  • KLM
  • InterMiles
  • jetBlue (see note below)
  • Malaysia Airlines
  • Qantas
  • Qatar
  • Singapore Airlines
  • Thai Airways
  • Turkish Airlines
  • Virgin Atlantic

*jetBlue: Citi Chairman, Prestige, and Premier transfer 1:1. Rewards+ and Preferred transfer 1000:800.
