Citi has added Australia’s largest airline as the newest transfer partner to their Citi ThankYou points program.
You can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to Qantas at a 1:1 ratio. So they now have 11 airlines (plus Hilton hotels) to choose from.
Just last month, Citi added Virgin Atlantic as a partner, so they’re expanding to compete with other transferable points programs like Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards.
But there are very few situations where transferring points to Qantas would make sense. That’s because their award chart is expensive compared to most other airlines, and they add fuel surcharges!
Is Transferring Citi ThankYou Points to Qantas a Reason to Jump for Joy?
Let’s have a quick look at Qantas’ frequent flyer program and see if it’s worth transferring points.
Are you planning medium or long-haul domestic award flights in the next few months? Do you live in a city not served by many nonstop American Airlines flights? And do you have a lot of American Airlines miles?
If so, you might save miles by booking Citi AAdvantage American Airlines reduced mileage awards!
The new list of Citi AAdvantage American Airlines reduced mileage award cities is out. You could save 5,000 to 7,500 miles on award tickets between specific destinations which change each month.
But only if you hold certain Citi American Airlines cards.
And there’s good news! American Airlines no longer charges a phone booking fee for reduced mileage awards. In the past, American Airlines charged $25 per ticket.
Spend Fewer Miles With American Airlines Reduced Mileage Awards
American Airlines publishes the list of eligible destinations every other month, with discounts listed for the next 4 months.
