Citi thank you points to hilton
Citi thank you points is currently offering 1:5 ratio transfer option if points are to be transferred to Hilton honors program.
Can u advise if that’s a good deal or do I transfer it to airlines such as Etihad or Qatar?
Could be useful if you’re close to an award with Hilton. Otherwise, transferring points without a specific use in mind isn’t the best idea, even with a promotion.
Same applies to transfers to Etihad or Qatar – with a specific use in mind, sure. Otherwise, it is usually better to keep them in the transferable points program.
Lastly – I dont know much about QR’s program but I dont believe it is especially good since it’s rarely covered. Etihad’s program could be useful but some awards are high and carry charges. Their partner awards are decent though but have different rules for different partners.
