The Fine Print

  • Valid until 11:59 PM ET February 20, 2019

Our Verdict

This is the first time we’ve seen Citi offer a transfer bonus to Turkish Airlines. Turkish Airlines was added as a transfer partner roughly a year and a half ago. Keep in mind the fuel surcharges Turkish Airlines charges. For a full list of other transfer bonuses Citi has offered, click here.
