Citi is Dropping Hilton Honors Transfer Partner on December 13
Several Citi bank credit cards earn Citi ThankYou Points. These points can currently be transferred to 15 airline and hotel partners. Citi partners include Air France Flying Blue, Etihad Guest, JetBlue TrueBlue, Singapore KrisFlyer, Hilton Honors etc. Hilton currently offers credit cards through both Citi and American Express. Last week, we learned that American Express will be Hilton’s sole credit card provider starting January 2018.
As part of these changes, Citi will no longer allow point transfers to Hilton Honors beginning December 13, 2017. You can till transfer points from Citi to Hilton at a ratio of 1,000:1,500 points until then. That said, the currently transfer ratio is still pretty bad. It only makes sense to transfer these points if there is a particularly appealing Hilton redemption you have in mind. Keep in mind that you can also transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards to Hilton Honors at the same 1,000:1,5000 point ratio.
