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.)Another way I earned a nice chunk of points was with the JetBlue- Virgin America points match offer.
Now there’s a new option for getting some JetBlue points into your account.
I recently received an e-mail stating that Citi Thank You Points has a new points transfer airline partner- JetBlue.
According to the e-mail, as a Citi Premier cardmember I could enjoy the benefits of using Points Transfer for JetBlue. I just wish that the points transfer rate was a bit better.
With this new offer, 1.25 Citi Thank You Points= 1 JetBlue TrueBlue point.
Transfers need to be made in 1,000 points increments:
This transfer rate matches is the same that American Express offers.
However, One Mile At A Time points out that if you want to book travel with JetBlue using Citi Thank You points, there is a better way to do so. Find out the details here.
Would I consider transferring Citi Thank You points to JetBlue?
Although the transfer rate isn’t great, I don’t have many miles or points in the other airlines which are transfer partners. If I wasn’t looking to book a flight and was wanted to close out my account then JetBlue could still be an option.
Here’s how you can redeem your points:
- Visit thankyou.com/transfer
- Choose JetBlue from the list of transfer partners and follow the prompts
- Your Thank You points will then be transferred to TrueBlue points
What do you think of this new transfer for Citi Thank You points? In my opinion, more options are still a good thing.
