Citi (apparently) loses transfer partner Garuda Indonesia

In reading blog posts from around the Internet for our week in review around the web post (which publishes later tonight), I came across a post from Milelion (a Singapore-based blog) saying that Citibank had lost Garuda Indonesia as a transfer partner. It isn’t uncommon for banks with a presence in multiple countries to have different transfer partners, so I wasn’t immediately sure whether this would affect US-issued cards. However, after logging in to ThankYou.com,…

(EXPIRED) 50% off Thai award tickets for select markets (all classes)

A couple of days ago a reader thanked Nick for discovering and documenting how to book flights from the US mainland to Hawaii for only 7,500 points one-way.  She wrote that she was able to book her family of six for only 45,000 points!

7.5K each way to Hawaii: The sweetest spot we’ve been missing

Our #40Kfaraway challenge has led me to more closely study the award charts of all of the Citi Transfer Partners. I recently stumbled on a gem that I shared over the weekend at FM to Go Minneapolis: you can fly from the mainland US to/from Hawaii for 7.5K each way in economy class. If you can find it, business class is 12.5K each way. That’s a pretty amazing sweet spot — and yes, I’ve booked it…

Can you double the Citi Rewards+ 10K rebate by getting two?

In the post “Citi Rewards+ is a great companion to Premier or Prestige,” I explained why I think that the Rewards+ is a great companion card.  It’s not a great card on its own, but if you have another card that earns ThankYou points, the Rewards+ offers an easy way to recoup up to 10,000 ThankYou points per year.  The killer feature of this card is that it gives you a 10% rebate on any…
