ThankYou Points are a transferable points program offered by Citi on select credit cards. ThankYou Points transfer to nine airlines and Hilton. Normally 1,000 ThankYou Points transfer to 1,500 Hilton points. Until January 8, 2015, 1,000 ThankYou Points transfers to 2,000 Hilton points!
This is exciting to me because there are some high value uses of Hilton points, and also because this is the first Citi ThankYou Points transfer bonus. Hopefully the first of many.
We have seen transfer bonuses from American Express Membership Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest points, but never from Chase Ultimate Rewards or Citi ThankYou Points until now.
Citi ThankYou Points are extremely easy to earn. The Citi ThankYou® Premier Rewards Card offers 20,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in the first three months and 30,000 more bonus points after spending $3,000 in the first three months of your second year of cardmembership. That’s 50,000 total bonus points.
The Citi ThankYou® Premier Rewards Card also earns 3x points on dining and entertainment and 2x on airfare and hotels.
Before you rush off and transfer all your Citi ThankYou Points to Hilton HHonors points, though, make sure you are moving toward a high-value redemption.
