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.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

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.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
