Breaking news: You can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to American Airlines. This is a limited-time deal valid today through November 13, 2021. See this article on Business Insider.
Citi Premier and Citi Prestige card holders have a 1:1 transfer ratio to American Airlines. Other Citi cards with ThankYou points have a 2:1 transfer ratio (1000 ThankYou points equal 500 AA AAdvantage miles).
This is pretty big news, as this transfer has never been possible in the past. Currently, the Citi Premier has an 80k bonus after spending $4000 in the first three months. See my previous post for all the details.
Since I live near an AA hub (DFW), this transfer option makes the card even more attractive to me. More options on how to spend points is always welcome.
