Citi transfer partners

Citi boasts a wide range of transfer partners, but it is important to be aware that not all partners transfer at 1:1 ratio. Actual ratios depend on the specific partner and the Citi card you hold. These means while Citi offers great value, its transfer partners are not the most beginner-friendly. 

Citi airline transfer partners

Here are Citi's airline transfer partners:

  • Aeromexico Rewards
  • Avianca LifeMiles
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Emirates Skywards
  • Etihad Guest
  • EVA Air
  • Air France/KLM Flying Blue
  • JetBlue True Blue*
  • Qantas 
  • Qatar Airways Privilege Club
  • Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
  • Thai Royal Orchid Plus
  • Turkish Miles and Smiles
  • Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

Citi hotel partners

Citi also offers the following hotel transfer partners:

  • All Accor Live Limitless (1 ThankYou Point = 0.5 Accor points)
  • Choice Privileges*
  • Leaders Club (1 ThankYou point = 0.2 points)
  • Wyndam Rewards*

*With these select partners, ThankYou points transfer at different ratios depending on the card you hold. 

PartnerRatio for Citi Prestige and Citi PremierRatio for other cards, including Citi Rewards+ and Citi Double Cash
JetBlue1:11: 0.8
Choice Privileges1:21: 1.5
Wyndam Rewards1:11: 0.8

All other partners transfer at a ratio of 1:1, meaning 1,000 ThankYou points become 1,000 airline miles or hotel points.

Retail transfer partner

In addition, Citi ThankYou points can transfer to the retail partner, Shop Your Way. Shop Your Way allows you to redeem points for gift cards. 

Citi ThankYou points transfer to Shop Your Way at a ratio of 1:10, meaning 1 ThankYou point becomes 10 Shop Your Way points.
