Redeeming Rewards+ Thank You Points
You can redeem ThankYou points for one cent each for gift cards or through the Citi Travel Portal.
There are two exceptions to this rule:
- You can transfer to JetBlue at a 5 ThankYou Points and 4 JetBlue points.
- If you have a Citi Prestige or Citi Premier credit card, you can combine the ThankYou points and then transfer to Citi’s airline partners. However, you will be ineligible for the 10% points back bonus, but I find that you can usually get at least 1.6 cents per point in value from Citi ThankYou airline partners, whereas you would only get 1.1 cent in value from redeeming for gift cards or travel portal with the 10% bonus.
