New Promo Code Saves on Hotels Booked Via Citi: Stacks With Using Points

It’s rare that you can combine a coupon code with using points for travel, but right now you can do just that via Citi ThankYou. Via a new offer, you can stack a promo code from Citi with using ThankYou points for a potentially great deal on a hotel stay. In the Citi ThankYou Travel Center, you can use code CITI50 to save $50 on a two-night hotel stay if you book by April 30, 2018. This is really a…

Fly to Vail, Aspen, Long Beach and More for Fewer Miles on American!

A very, very valuable discount available to those who hold one of the American Airlines Citi or Barclays co-branded credit cards is a discount of up to 7,500 miles on saver award flights to or from select cities each month via the Reduced Mileage Awards list. This has become even more valuable than it was for a while since American has loosened up a bit on saver award availability. I write about these discounts a few times a year since the cities are…

How to Get the Lowest Black Friday Prices Right Now

One of my daughters is already off of school for Thanksgiving Break and the other one will be arriving off of the bus at any moment, so let’s go ahead and talk about Black Friday sales. Or rather, let’s talk about why you don’t need to wait for them to start to go ahead and get what you want or need at the lowest prices of the season (while stacking up the mileage earnings, of course). You can buy now…

Why We Turned Citi ThankYou Points Into Hilton Honors Points

Remember that time I transferred Amex Membership Reward points to Delta SkyMiles? A couple years ago I would have taken odds against me ever doing that since SkyMiles wasn’t generally thought to be a great frequent flyer program, and I had more lofty goals for my Membership Reward points than transferring to Delta for an economy domestic saver award. But, it made financial sense at the time, and I don’t regret it one bit.   Now I am in the same situation with…

Things to Know About the July 23rd Citi Prestige Changes

Just about a year ago we got wind of the changes coming to the Citi Prestige credit card for new and eventually existing cardholders. It was great for them to give such advance notice of coming changes, but now that the July 23, 2017, date is almost here, I think it is a good time to review what is changing with the card, who should consider getting the card, and some things you may want to do ASAP if you are a…

Save $5 on Amazon $50+ Order With One Citi ThankYou Point

Between Amazon Prime Day offers, a $10 bonus with your first Amazon Cash reload, and discounts for using an Amex Membership Reward point at check-out, there have been lots of amazing Amazon discounts available recently. So many in fact that this $5 Amazon discount may seem pretty ho-hum compared to some of the others. However, $5 is still $5 in my book, so at the risk of treading in Amazon-discount-overload territory, here is how to potentially save $5 on an eligible $50+ Amazon…

Temporary Bonus: Transfer ThankYou Points to Hilton at 1:2 Ratio

One of the transfer partners of the Citi ThankYou program is Hilton Honors. Normally the transfer ratio is 1,000 Citi ThankYou points = 1,500 Hilton Honors points, but through September 20, 2017, the ratio is improved temporarily to a 1:2 ratio where 1,000 ThankYou points will become 2,000 Hilton Honors points! Even at a 1:2 ratio it isn’t going to always make sense to transfer from Citi to the Hilton program since Hilton points are generally only worth about a…
