When one door closes, another one opens. Apparently the same thing applies to transfer bonuses because the Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer bonus to Air France/KLM Flying Blue ended yesterday, only to be replaced by a similar transfer bonus from Citi ThankYou.

Citi ThankYou Air France KLM Flying Blue 25% transfer bonus

The Deal

  • Get a 25% bonus when transferring Citi ThankYou points to Air France/KLM Flying Blue.
  • Direct link to offer.

Key Terms

  • Expires June 17, 2023 at 11:59pm ET.

Quick Thoughts

It’s apparently Flying Blue transfer bonus month. The 25% bonus from Chase ended yesterday, Bilt offered a 100% bonus for May 1 only, while Amex is also offering a 25% bonus when transferring Membership Rewards over to Flying Blue. That means you now have the choice between transferring from Amex and/or Citi. Note though that the Amex transfer bonus ends on May 22, while this new Citi bonus goes through June 17.

Best uses for Flying Blue Miles
  • Air France Flying Blue Promo Rewards.  Each month, Air France offers discounted award rates for a number of routes.  Sometimes we see economy flights from the US to Europe available for less than 11,000 miles one-way.
  • Fly to Israel for the same award price as to Europe.  For example, you may see business class flights from the U.S. to Tel Aviv for as low as 55,000 miles one-way.
  • Delta economy flights between the US and Hawaii for 17,500 miles one-way.  Air France also has great award prices for Delta first class to Hawaii, but Delta rarely releases first class award space on its Hawaii routes.
Things to know
  • Air France awards usually incur taxes and fees.
  • Award availability may be hard to find.  Acquire Flying Blue miles only if you know that the awards you want are available.
  • Flying Blue miles expire 2 years after they are earned. Keeping miles alive beyond two years is… weird:
    • As long as you don’t credit any flying activity to your account, you can renew your miles by acquiring more miles through non-flight activity. For example, transferring miles from a transferable points program will renew these miles.
    • If you earn miles by crediting flight activity to your account, then all of your miles become flight activity miles and can only be extended by taking an eligible flight (and crediting it to Flying Blue), or by being an elite member, or making a purchase with your Air France / KLM Flying Blue credit card.

This is targeted because it does not appear on my credit card account. I have the Citi Double Cash Card with Thank You Points.
