Citi Adds Emirates Skywards to ThankYou Points Transfer Partners

Citi today announced that eligible U.S. cardmembers can now transfer their ThankYou Points to Emirates Skywards at a 1-to-1 ratio. With the addition of Emirates Skywards, Citi’s ThankYou Points transfer program now offers cardmembers access to 16 partners.

The Emirates Skywards program probably doesn’t get many people excited, since redemptions are high and they also have exorbitant surcharges. Emirates is also currently a transfer partner for Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Capital One miles. So this news just adds one more option.

Guru’s Wrap-up

With Emirates added to the Citi ThankYou program, you now have one more transfer option. But I doubt many people will rush to transfer points to Emirates right now especially.
