There are some airline loyalty programs that are transfer partners of several transferable currencies. Emirates Skywards was already a partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards, Amex Membership Rewards, Capital One and Marriott Bonvoy and they’ve now rounded that out by becoming a transfer partner for Citi ThankYou points.
You can now transfer 1,000 ThankYou points for every 1,000 Skywards miles. Despite being transfer partners of every other major transferable currency previously, the addition of Citi is a welcome development as more options is always better.
Emirates has a number of sweet spots which you can find here: Searching for Emirates sweet spots with partner airline awards. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the best:
