Looks like Dan made it into a USA Today article
"Of course Iím relying on Danís Deals here for this information, I havenít independently verified it yet, but I usually find Dan to be pretty reliable."

Now if DDF could get press on FWF it would quickly double the membership here. Could you imagine this place with another 2-3k members like me?  ;D

You almost disappointed me by not taking a free shot at FWF but I see you corrected that.

ETA: FWF and me in the same post. You are on a roll, time to get out the butter!  :)

This is all a bunch of baloney?

From Citi PR (via another blog):

"The information posted on DansDeals.com regarding transferring ThankYou Points to certain international airlines is not accurate. ThankYou members can redeem points for travel on any airline with no blackout dates in the ThankYou Travel Center. Currently ThankYou members cannot directly transfer their ThankYou Points to an airline.Ē

EDIT:

Quote
I called to confirm that this will not be changing in the future (as Dansdeals suggested this would kick in April 1st ó April Fools to all of usÖ) and Citiís rep said that there are no plans at all to allow transfers to BA or Singapore.

Very well written.
This will indeed make Citi's PR even more angry.

I guess I now know why the OP was so coy about this and would not say where the info came from.

Weird that Dan called no less than 3 or 4 times, and got the reps to confirm the xfer option, whereas the other blogger to call got a brick wall.

Either:
A. The other blogger called a different number.
B. They have finally gotten the memo out to deny knowledge of it.

Super classy of Citi to defame me like that, and kudos to Gary for a fair post on the matter.

Why should I get them in trouble?

Just put down the phone with a Citi rep. I asked her: "is it true that on April 1st I'll be able to transfer Thank You points into British Airways and Singapore airlines frequent flyer program?" she answers me: "thats correct" I asked: "can you please verify that information?" she said "give me a moment" after a few min she came back and said "yes, that info is correct" after going back and forth with her I got the following new information: there are many types of Citi cards which earn Thank You points, but not all of them will be eligible to transfer, only the following 4 cards: Citi Premier card; Citi Prestige card; Citi Chairman MC and Citi Chairman Amex.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.
