Not sure if this was posted or not, but for a limited time (through January 6, 2016), Citi Thank You Points transfer to HHonors at a ratio of 1:2, which is a 50% increase, and might make transferring there a decent option in my opinion.

IINM a statement credit will get you 0.5 cpp.

You can call to get a check to pay your mortgage at 1.25 cpp. Edit- it may actually be 1cpp now.

Even if you don't have a mortgage you can give them the name of your bank. Put your name and acct # in the memo. Sign and deposit (good to write "for deposit only"). Probably better to deposit at ATM if you're not using it for a real mortgage payment.
Some banks will not accept the checks "for deposit only". A good way is to pay your CC at the bank with these checks. Did I miss 1.25cpp redemption? I thought it was always 1cpp.

You can also get them written out to your "private mortgage holder"  ;).

Not sure about redemption rate- I did it once a while back.

I have the Citi Forward card which I rarely use. I closed my checking account and received an email that my thank you points will expire December 31. I swiped my cc Friday and it's still pending. Citi rep couldn't tell me if that's enough to keep my points from expiring or that it would have to post first. What are my options?
It's worth too much.

Use the points before they expire.

Plan to downgrade/cancel Premier card, so I should probably liquidate my points.
Looking at the points transfer options, Turkish seems like the most lucrative for domestic flights (preferred use ATM).
JetBlue would also be an option, but IINM there's a fee to transfer to domestic partners. (I also barely see good points redemptions on JetBlue. Every time I book, their points option is relatively poor.)

My question is: Is it too risky to park points at Turkish (without a specific redemption in mind for the immediate future)?

(And Re. JetBlue, my thoughts are, if their points are worth ~1.3, +transfer fee, I may as well cash out at 1.1. Please help me understand if you believe differently.)

TIA

Can I have someone else transfer Citi points to my Turkish Miles? I have Citi points, but only the 2 % Cashback card, so I am not seeing an option to transfer to Turkish.

ITYAM (new acronym I just created which stands for "I think you are mistaken"  ;)

Citi does not charge a transfer fee when transferring TYP's to domestic Airlines.

Probably what you are thinking about is Amex charging that domestic Airline transfer fee for membership rewards points transfers. AFAIK Citi does not have any sort of comparable fee.

Does Citi normally post new card sign up bonuses within a few days of meeting the spending requirement, or do they wait until the statement closes?

Answering my own question: they post once the statement closes
