Transfer Citi Thank You Points to JetBlue

Citi Thank You Points

Disclosure: I receive a commission if you apply & get approved for one of the credit cards mentioned in this post. Thank you for supporting Michael W Travels.

Earlier in the year I wrote about JetBlue adding flights to a destination that I’d like to visit.

Due to some appealing flight options, I’ve been trying to build up my JetBlue account. I considered transferring Amex Membership Rewards point there. One way I’ve earned some points was by getting the JetBlue Barclaycard. (If you’re interested in applying for the JetBlue card you can do so here and earn 30,000 TrueBlue points.)

While I wasn’t thrilled with the options, I decided to keep the card open. I then considered calling back to close the card but in the end, never bothered….

A 50,000 AAdvantage bonus miles offer was enough to entice me to apply for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Mastercard. Continue reading Citi AAdvantage Plat Select 50K Bonus Confirmed

Slower Year for CC Churning, Another 50K Approval Helps

A Bizarre Retention Offer

Turning Down A Citi AA Retention Offer

This is really bizarre…

Last month I thought that I turned down a retention offer on my Citi AA Mastercard and closed my account.

I was told that the $95 balance from the annual fee would be removed and that the account was closed. However, when I checked into my Citi account a few times over the past month, it always showed that I still had a balance. Continue reading A Bizarre Retention Offer
