Question re transferred Citi ThankYou points
How does Citi use transferred ThankYou points when booking flights? Specifically, ThankYou points that a customer earns do not expire, but points transferred from someone else (such as a family member) do – after 90 days.
For example: Let’s say I have 40K points that I earned, plus 40K transferred to me by a family member. If I book a flight for 50K miles, which miles does Citi use first – the ones that would otherwise expire in 90 days, or the non-expiring ones?
That makes a huge difference!
I’d assume Citi uses points that expire soonest first.
