Citi Thank You Points
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:00:48 PM »
I had always hears that TY points are valuable.  I'm looking at the options though and unless I am misunderstanding my options their value to me is minimal.  Am I correct that the only option to transfer to an airline rewards program is Jetblue? Not sure how else I can maximize their value

TY Preferred points can only transfer to JetBlue, what your hearing about is TY Premier/Prestige. Those have much more vallue

I hate to break it to you but you got plenty of research to do...

Quantas for ELAL is a pretty solid transfer among others

But still not a ton of value. Not like Amex or Chase points (given the right cards).

Yeah, sure, but I have yet to see or find someone who prefers TY points.

Which makes the supply lower, presumably giving them more market value.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Yes
Maybe in your world. Everyone has different ways to manufacture points.

I was answering the market value part.
I personally don't touch TYP cards, so I don't know much, but off the top of my head j can think of a simple way to rack em up.
