Should you combine ThankYou accounts?

pooling ThankYou accounts

Citibank ThankYou Rewards points can be earned from several credit cards, and from some bank accounts. By default, each credit card or bank account has its own ThankYou Rewards account.  Citi does provide a way to combine accounts, but should you?  In the past, I said no (see this post for details), but now things have changed and the question is once again relevant. Advantages of combining ThankYou accounts There are a few advantages to…

Amex and Citi capture my wallet but not my spend

I got 3X for travel and dining with the Sapphire Reserve, and I got 1.5X everywhere else with the Freedom Unlimited. Now, Amex and Citi have shattered that approach.

Debating my 1.67 cents screwed up math

In response to my recent post “Up to 1.67 cents per point value from ThankYou points,” some accused me of publishing junky and screwed up math.  I answered those accusations in the blog comments, but there’s more to the story… When news first came out that the Citi Prestige card would allow 4th Night Free bookings online and with points, a blogger published a questionable conclusion.  Through the ThankYou portal you can now choose to…

Up to 1.67 cents per point value from ThankYou points

The Citi ThankYou Rewards program is weird, but in a good way — sort-of.  If you have multiple ThankYou cards, you can keep your points separate by card or you can pool your points together.  Chase, on the other hand, keeps all Ultimate Rewards points separate by card, but they let you freely move points from one card to another.  Amex works the opposite way: all Membership Rewards points are automatically pooled together. With both…
