No, for sure this is not the best you can do with Citi ThankYou points.
In most cases, its pretty easy to beat 1.5 cents per point in value. And I do have a guide to redeeming Citi ThankYou points for travel.
But for those that don’t want to deal with transferring to frequent flyer programs, you can no longer get better than 1 cent per point.
(You used to be able to redeem flights in the portal for 1.25 cents each with a Citi Premier – and before that you could even redeem at 1.66 cents per point on AA flights with a Citi Prestige, but that’s long gone.)
If that is you, you may want to check today’s Cyber Monday sale and redeem 20% less points for select gift cards, like Apple, Spafinder, IHOP, and more.
Just login to your Citi ThankYou account to see which gift cards are available at the discounted redemption price. Remember, this is only valid today, Nov 29th, 2021.
