30% Transfer Bonus from Citi ThankYou to Qatar Airways Avios

There is a new and very limited time transfer bonus on now for 10 days to get a 30% bump in Qatar Avios when transferring Citi ThankYou points. The bonus ends Nov 10th

While the promotion indicates all bank partners, Amex is very clearly not on the list so I would not try that.

The promotion comes from the Qatar side and they state to allow up to 45 days to get your 30% bonus points so definitely keep that in mind as we are all used to transferring to book something right now and this won’t work out that way.

Of course this could be a great way to book Qsuites now that the Qatar Avios program is up and running and you can also use this as a proxy for a Citi to BA transfer bonus (if you are willing to wait) since the programs are linked.

  • Privilege Club members will earn bonus Avios upon converting Reward Points from a Participating Partner into Avios.

  • Once Avios are credited to your Privilege Club account, after converting your Reward Points into Avios, the transaction will not be reversed.
