With the recent news of the coronavirus spreading, and people being stuck at home, this would be an interesting time to add a new transfer partner, but Citi has made the news by doing so.
Citi has added Emirates as a new transfer partner to the ThankYou program. These points will transfer at a 1:1 rate.
What an interesting time to add a transfer partner? I wonder if this was something that they quickly negotiated (probably not) or if this was long in the making, but just so happened to come out now. With the removal of Indonesia Air recently, at least this brings us back up to 18 total transfer partners again. Even with the traditionally expensive reward redemptions, I’m hopeful that we can find some nice redemptions that would be worthwhile.
