Citi Points Transfer Credit Cards

There's a decent handful of credit cards that allow you to earn ThankYou Rewards Points on everyday spend, but all of them do not allow you to transfer points to Citi's full list of travel partners.

In order to transfer your ThankYou Points to Citi's 15 travel partners, you'll need to have the Citi Premier Card or Citi Prestige Card.

If you do not have one of those cards tied to your ThankYou Rewards account, you will only be able to transfer points to JetBlue TrueBlue and that will be at a lower 5:4 ratio.
