Through July 31, you can earn a 25% bonus when you transfer your points from Citi ThankYou Rewards and select hotel programs to Etihad Guest. Typically, these transfer bonuses are processed by the credit card issuer's program, but this time it's Etihad tacking on the extra miles. Bonus miles are expected to post by the middle of August, regardless of when you begin the transfer.

Your best bet is to transfer points from Citi ThankYou Rewards earned with cards like the Citi Prestige and Citi Premier Card, since those transfer to Etihad at a 1:1 ratio, but you can also transfer hotel points at the following rates:

  • Accor Hotels - 2:1
  • Hilton HHonors - 10:1
  • Hyatt Gold Passport - 2.5:1
  • IHG Rewards Club - 5:1
  • Marriott Rewards - 10:1.5
  • Club Carlson - 10:1
All of the above Citi points transfers are eligible.

TPG values Citi points at 1.6 cents each and Etihad Guest miles at 1.4 cents each, but you can get much more value out of them than that by booking award flights with Etihad's partners.

Will you be transferring Citi points to Etihad?

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
