Cards That Earn Citi ThankYou Points

  • Citi Premier® Card – Earn 80,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.
  • Citi Prestige® Card – Earn 50,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on qualifying purchases in the first 3 months

The Flying Blue frequent flyer program is a mixed bag. Air France/KLM's Flying Blue uses dynamic award pricing, which is not great. That being said, award redemptions are reasonable for the most part. One benefit of transferring points to Flying Blue is that Flying Blue members have access to better award availability than frequent flyers from partner airlines.
