More ways to Spend Citi ThankYou Points

Cardholders who earn Citi ThankYou points have a couple of new redemption options. The Citi ThankYou Select and PointWorthy programs let customers use their points to pay for purchases they’ve already made on their cards, or donate points to charity. The two new programs are being introduced this month and apply to all customers with a Citi consumer credit card.

Paying for purchases with points

Instead of offering a blanket account credit, like some credit card rewards programs do, the Citi ThankYou Select program lets cardholders choose which purchases they’d like to pay for with their reward points. Eligible purchases include dining, entertainment, groceries, drug store items, and utilities.

To redeem points, customers choose the “Use Points to Select and Credit” link found on their account center online. They then select the purchases they’d like to use their points for from a list of eligible transactions and accept terms and conditions to complete the request. You will get an email confirmation. Credits post to the account within 48 hours.

Points for charity

Using the PointWorthy program, cardholders can donate their ThankYou points to their favorite charity. The minimum donation is $10, which costs 1,000 points. Participating charities include education, medical research, the arts and more. Citi card customers must create a PointWorthy account and link their ThankYou points account with their PointWorthy account in order to make a donation.

People can donate part of their points to charity and reserve the rest for other redemption options, such as gift cards or travel rewards. They can also share points with friends and family. Citi customers can transfer points to each other for free. There is a ThankYou Point Sharing App on Facebook that allows members to pool their points and save up for a higher value reward.
