[…] Transfer Bonus from Citi ThankYou to Hilton HHonors — Get 2 Hilton points for 1 Citi point, which is a pretty terrible deal unless you’re topping off an account for a specific award stay. As Hilton points generally only get 0.4 to 0.5 cents per point in value, transferring may get you less value than you would by booking through the Citi ThankYou travel portal for 1 cent per Citi point. Neither situation represents particularly good value out of Citi ThankYou points — again, unless perhaps you’re just a couple thousand points shy of a high-value award stay or — you want to book an AXON award before they disappear. Which, considering the opaque changes coming to Hilton Honors this month, might not be such a bad idea. […]

Jedi

When you cashed out Citi TY points (mortgage), is it taxable income, ie getting 1099?

If someone has excess Thank You points that they are considering cashing out like you did and values Hilton points on occasion, it might make sense, especially if the cash out is taxable.

Would appreciate your thoughts.
