Update 2/20/21: This offer has been extended through February 25, 2021.
Update 1/30/21: Kevin has confirmed in the comments below that this transfer bonus is on the LifeMiles side rather than being a Citi transfer bonus and that it’s available for everyone.
There are reports that some people are seeing a 25% bonus when transferring Citi ThankYou points to Avianca LifeMiles.
- Get a 25% bonus when transferring Citi ThankYou points to Avianca LifeMiles.
- Offer valid January 27 to February
It looks like this might be a targeted offer. When Nick and I logged in to our Citi accounts, we’re only seeing the regular 1,000:1,000 transfer ratio, rather than a 1,000:1,250 ratio.
One Mile At A Time is reporting on this transfer bonus though and some members of the Travel on Points Facebook group have received emails about this offer. The transfer bonus starts today, so the fact that Nick and I haven’t received emails about it and it’s not showing on our accounts suggests only select cardholders are eligible for this bonus.
If you have a particular redemption in mind, this could be a useful bonus. As always though, it’s generally best not to make speculative transfers, especially with rules regarding travel restrictions changing all the time.
Received email from Lifemiles.com on Friday 2/19 with subject “Missed out on the Point transfer promo? We got you covered!”
The content included the following:
Because you asked for it! Now you have 7 more days to transfer your ThankYou® Points from Citi to LifeMiles and get 25% bonus miles.
How can you transfer your Points to LifeMiles?
Offer valid until February 25th, 2021. The bonus miles will be reflected in your account statement in two separate transactions.
This isn’t something that Citi ThankYou is promoting.
I can confirm the 25% Avianca Transfer bonus from Citi’s Thank You program applies to everyone. You will not see any mention of the bonus on Citi’s site as the deal is on Avianca’s side. I transferred 104,000 Thank You points today and 130,000 miles posted to my Avianca account instantly.
Thanks – I’ll update the post.
