The transfer rate for the new partnership is 2-to-1 for Citi Preferred cardholders, while Citi Premier and Prestige cardholders can transfer points at a rate of 1.25-to-1.
This new partnership is seen as a way to give cardholders more when they are booking travel and redeeming rewards.
“We have made significant enhancements in recent years to the ThankYou Program to provide cardmembers with more choice and flexibility to use their ThankYou points in ways that fit their lifestyle,” said Mary Hines Droesch, Global Head of Citi Rewards. “We are now thrilled to offer our cardmembers even greater travel options with the ability to transfer their ThankYou Points to TrueBlue Points. We think our cardmembers will be just as excited.”
