How bad are Citi ThankYou hotel prices?

There was a time when I was excited about the idea of booking hotels through the Citi ThankYou portal.  That was when I realized that it was possible to stack Premier & Prestige benefits.

Note that this bonus is actually on the LifeMiles side of things rather than coming from Citi or the hotel programs, so expect it to work a bit different.

Targeted Qantas transfer bonus: up to 30% (really 15% for most)

Yesterday, we reported that Qantas has become an Amex transfer partner. In that post, we noted that you may want to link your Qantas account to Membership Rewards and make a small transfer because Dan’s Deals reported that having made at least one transfer into your Qantas account would make you more likely to be targeted for transfer bonuses from the Qantas side in the future. Maybe that advice was good; I made my first Qantas transfer from…

New Citi application rule might be a net win

Last Friday, Doctor of Credit reported what looks like a pretty positive change in application terms on many Citi cards. Specifically, Citi ThankYou cards have received a slight wording change in the terms surrounding the Citi 24-month clock that may not make it possible to open more than one ThankYou card at a time. Note that we will need more datapoints to know how the new wording is being applied, so YMMV for the time being. The…
