Note: For Citi ThankYou® Premier, Citi Prestige® and Citi Chairman® cardmember point transfers to TrueBlue, 1,000 Points = 800 TrueBlue points. For Citi ThankYou Preferred or Citi Forward cardmember point transfers to TrueBlue, 1,000 Points = 500 TrueBlue points.

Now that makes more sense. I was looking under 2 user accounts and each had a different rate. Didn’t know Banks control external transfer rate depending on card. Thought that was limited to portal travel purchase value percentage.

You probably meant to write dollars per point, or to move the decimal point two digits to the right.

I have a card that able to transfer to airlines and one that’s not. Do I have to go through the share miles option in order for me to transfer all the miles ? Is sharing miles instant ? Is there a way to combine them just like chase ?
(Citi website is so bad especially the typ part)

Sharing is instant IIRC, but the shared points will expire after 90 days.

this is the most annoying part about Citi TY points. Chase is much better with the ability to co-mingle UR points.

In order to use the Points Transfer feature, you must be a ThankYou Rewards Member with a ThankYou Member Account ("ThankYou Account "), and have a Citi ThankYou Premier, Citi Prestige, Citi Chairman, Citi ThankYou Preferred credit card enrolled in ThankYou Rewards (" Card Account(s)"); if you have only a Citi ThankYou Preferred credit card enrolled in ThankYou Rewards, you are only eligible to transfer points to TrueBlue.
I'll tell you later

Are shared points treated like taxable points or can you share points and then transfer to airline?
