Citi is offering a 25% transfer bonus from ThankYou Rewards to Air France Flying Blue miles through April 16, 2021. As with almost any transfer bonus, I don’t recommend transferring unless you have an immediate need for the miles.
Flying Blue miles expire after 24 months and can only be renewed with crediting paid flights to Flying Blue or putting spend on an Air France credit card. It turns out that miles transferred to Flying Blue can be extended beyond 24 months by transferring more points into the program.
Get 25% more miles when converting Citi ThankYou Rewards to Air France Flying Blue miles. Valid through April 16, 2021.
Transfer bonuses from bank points to airline miles have been nearly nonexistent during the pandemic. It’s great to see transfer bonuses start to return even though I have no plans to take advantage of this one. The best use of Flying Blue miles is probably to take advantage of their Promo Rewards. Each month, Air France offers discounted award rates for a number of routes. Sometimes (at least pre-pandemic), we’ve seen economy flights from the US to Europe available for less than 11,000 miles one-way. That’s fewer than 9,000 Citi points with this bonus. Keep in mind that you’ll also have to pay taxes and fees which vary by route.
