Citi ThankYou Points 25% Transfer Bonus To Avianca LifeMiles (1:1.25)

The Offer

  • Citi are offering a 25% transfer bonus when you transfer your Citi ThankYou points to Avianca LifeMiles program. Normally you can transfer 1,000 Citi ThankYou points and receive 1,000 Lifemiles and with this transfer bonus that changes to 1,250 LifeMiles.

The Fine Print

  • Valid until December 11th, 2019

Our Verdict

Citi & Avianca offered the same transfer bonus at effectively the same time last year as well. For a full list of previous Citi ThankYou point transfer bonuses click here. Avianca frequently sells miles at a deep discount, so it might be worth hanging onto your Citi TYP depending on how you value them.

Thanks for the heads up, transferred instantly.

I personally value TYP the lowest of the 3 major currencies, so this is always useful. Avianca can either be super valuable or useless depending on what you are looking to book. You are largely at the mercy of whatever their search engine gives you, so you cannot call and manually book with different availability than what you find on their site, like some other airlines. They do often run sales on redemptions, like the one recently on some asian routes, which was nice. Basically you can book some very attractive redemptions at this price with usually very low surcharges. To me, AV is probably the best partner for TYP other than Virgin Atlantic for DL and NH flights (plus the very limited and situational TK hawaii west coast flights on UA in coach for 15k RT).

I’ve been successful using the email booking method that frequent miler outlined a few months back for complex itineraries that Avianca’s online search engine cannot price.

yeah, but unless I’m mistaken, that is to book itineraries where you can manually price each leg on the website, but it won’t bring them up in one complex itinerary. I was referring to the lack of availability of certain segments online, which is far as I know cannot be booked any other way if they just don’t appear as available. for example, United shows saver availability on a segment, but it just doesn’t show up when you search that exact same segment on avianca.

Keep in mind Avianca is experiencing financial difficulties. I wouldn’t do a speculative transfer.

This is what I’ve been considering since my premier AF is due. Perfect timing on the bonus (was literally researching this morning on TYP transfer partners), but it certainly is a risk it seems.

Isn’t that Avianca Brasil which is separate from Avianca Columbia that this deal is for?
