Can You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points to a Spouse’s Airline Account?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Cathy, commented:

Can my husband transfer Citi ThankYou points to my frequent flyer account?

Great question, Cathy!

Your husband can NOT transfer Citi ThankYou points directly to your frequent flyer account.

But, if you both have a ThankYou account, he can transfer points to you for free.

Then, transfer the points from your ThankYou account to a Citi airline transfer partner as long as you have certain cards.  It’s called Citi Points Sharing.

Or, he can transfer ThankYou points to his airline account and book a flight for you.

God Save The Points - Interview With Gilbert

Flying British Airways’ “Baby Bus”, Their Direct Flight From New York to London City With Only 32 Seats, All Business Class!

How and when did you start collecting miles and points?

I was young!  I think I got my first Delta account when I was around age 12.  I don’t quite remember why I was so hell-bent on it, but I was.

Perhaps I read an in-flight magazine talking about the places it would take me.  I got everyone in my family an account too.  They were NOT miles people…
