Update 9/23/19: Thankfully this was just imprecise language by Citi. If you transfer points to your Chairman/Prestige/Premier accounts then you’ll be able to transfer to all travel partners. Hat tip to FM
Earlier today we posted that Citi would allow Citi Doublecash cardholders to convert $1 in rewards to 100 Citi ThankYou points. Based on previous reports we thought that these points would be transferable to travel partners and the rules would be as follows:
- Chairman, Prestige, or Premier cardholders will be able to transfer to all travel partners at a 1:1 rate
- If you don’t have one of those cards, you’ll be able to transfer to JetBlue at a 1:0.8 rate
ThankYou members who have a Citi Rewards+ Card, A Citi ThankYou Preferred card or ThankYou points coverted from Citi Double Cash Rewards can transfer available and qualifying points only to their participating TrueBlue program membership account.
This language seems to indicate that you’ll only be able to transfer Citi Doublecash points to JetBlue. It’s possible that if you have a Prestige/Premier you’ll still be able to transfer to other travel partners but I guess we won’t know for sure until point conversion is possible. I’d recommend holding off converting large amounts of points until we are certain that it is possible to transfer to all travel partners.
