How to Combine Your Citi ThankYou Points for Big Travel

If you have more than 1 Citi ThankYou account, you might want to combine them.

Because the redemption value you get for airfare, hotels, cruises, and car rentals booked through the Citi ThankYou portal will depend on which credit card your Citi ThankYou points are linked to.

For example, you’ll get 1.25 cents per point for points linked to your Citi ThankYou Premier card used to book hotels, cruises and car rentals.  And you’ll get 1.33 cents per point on airfare when the points are linked to your Citi Prestige card.

Or combining accounts might give you the opportunity to transfer points from an old Citi card like the ThankYou Preferred to airline and hotel partners.

It’s also easier to manage your Citi ThankYou points when they’re in 1 account.

Is It Worth Paying Citi Prestige’s $450 Annual Fee After the 1st Year?

Update:   The card offer in this post is no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

Million Mile Secrets reader Fran B emailed:

Is the Citi Prestige card worth keeping after the first year?  The 50,000 ThankYou point sign-up bonus was great, but the $450 annual fee is a lot!  If I keep the card, will I get the $250 statement credit for airline fees (like airfare and baggage fees) every year I’m a cardholder?

Great question, Fran B!

In short, yes, it could be worth keeping your Citi Prestige card after the first year if you’re able to use its most valuable perks.

Because the annual $250 statement credit for airline fees (that you’ll get each year you’re a cardholder), Priority Pass access, American Airlines Admirals Club lounge access through July 23, 2017, and the 4th night free perk, can more than offset the $450 annual fee!

We don’t earn a commission on this card, but we’ll always tell you the best deals!
