Via Giddy for Points, there’s a loophole in the Citi American Airlines Reduced Mileage Awards.  It allows you to book award flights from all the airports on the list (this month it’s 128!) to anywhere in the continental US or Canada at a discount!

If you have 1 of the Citi AAdvantage credit cards listed here, you can book award tickets at a reduced rate to destinations that change monthly.  But I’ve confirmed that you can also book tickets originating from cities included in the sale!

This is especially good news for folks who live in cities that are frequently on the reduced mileage award list, because it means they’ll be able to fly almost anywhere in the continental US and Canada for a reduced number of miles (as long as they have the right credit card!).

I’ve written that you can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to airline partners (as well as Hilton hotels).

Citi has just added Flying Blue (the frequent flyer program for Air France and KLM) as a transfer partner, which is great news for folks who like to book Flying Blue Promo Awards or use their miles on Delta (1 of their SkyTeam partners).

So now that there are even more options for transferring points to airlines, do you know which credit cards earn Citi ThankYou points?

There are a number of Citi credit cards that earn ThankYou points, but only 3 earn points that can be transferred directly to airline and hotel partners.
