Citi ThankYou to Virgin to Alaska
I’m wondering if converting my Citi ThankYou points to Virgin Elevate Points at a 1:1.25 and then converting those to Alaska miles at 1:1.3 is as good a conversion as it sounds. It would appear that I can take 50,000 TY points and make them 81,250 MP miles which seems like a pretty good deal. What am I missing?
That would be a great idea, but Citi ThankYou points transfer to Virgin [I]Atlantic[/I] at a 1:1.25 ratio not Virgin [I]America[/I], and only the latter transfers to Alaska.
The Citi to Virgin America ratio is 1000 to 500, so not really a great deal.
