Citibank is offering a promotional bonus of 10% more miles on ThankYou points transfers to Etihad Guest Miles from now till 11:59PM Eastern Time on July 5, 2017. The usual transfer ratio is 1 ThankYou Point to 1 Eithad Guest Mile.
Unlike last October 2016’s 20% bonus for transfers, this year’s 10% is not as high. Etihad had also sporadically offered bonuses on bank points transfers up to 25% last year to your Guest Miles account. We will just have to wait and see if Citibank or Etihad sweetens the deal on points transfers.

I personally will not be participating in this offer, in hopes of finding a better transfers during the summer months as history has shown. Etihad’s first class Apartments are amazing and am looking forward to my first flight with them if the right transfer bonus arises.
