Transferrable TY points through Preferred Card?
I have a Citi Thank You (TY) Preferred Card. I’m wondering if I get TY Prestige or Premier card if my existing TY points become transferable to airline frequent flyer programs such as AA’s and Singapore Airlines’?
I’m not 100% sure but I think they do. I’m assuming TY Points work the same way as Chase’s Ultimate Rewards points. With URs, if you only have a (no annual fee) Freedom card you can’t transfer them to an airline or hotel but if you have the Sapphire or one of the Ink cards (which all have annual fees) you can transfer points, even those earned via the Freedom card.
Anyone else with personal experience care to chime in?
No personal experience with the no fee card.
But from the horses mouth, so too speak.
Lucky also had a post on combining the TY Prestige and Premier accounts, would believe the procedure is the same.
