Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. In this post, I will show you how to share (aka transfer) points from your Citi Thank You Points account to another Citi Thank You Points account. This process is different than The Easy and Hard Way to Combine Citi Thank You Points into 1 Account. To get started, sign into your Citi Thank You Points account by going to thankyou.com. After signing into your account, click the More Ways to Redeem tab, and click SEE ALL. Don’t click the Points Transfer option.
If you mistakenly click Points Transfer, you will see the below page. This page is great if you want to transfer Citi Thank You Points to one of Citi’s travel partners (see my tutorial here), but you cannot transfer Citi Thank You Points to another account from this page.
After clicking on SEE ALL under the More Ways to Redeem tab, you will again see the Points Transfer option. That is a trap! Don’t click that link, otherwise you will go to the above Points Transfer page. Instead, click the right arrow 2 times until…
…you see the Points Sharing option.
Click the orange button to start sharing points (this link will take you to the right page).
Once here, click the Begin Sharing button. Please be aware of the limitations and exclusions on sharing Citi Thank You Points.
You cannot transfer Citi Thank You Points that are taxable, expire within 90 days, transferred into your account, frozen, or unavailable for redemption (whatever that means).
Here are the full terms and conditions for transferring Citi Thank You Points. The red rectangles have the most important pieces of information. Basically, you cannot transfer the Citi Thank You Points you received to another Citi Thank You Points account, you cannot refund the Citi Thank You Points back to the original account, and you must use the Citi Thank You Points within 90 days of receiving them.
To share Citi Thank You Points, enter the recipient’s first and last name, along with their Citi Thank You account number (instructions to find the account number below). Enter the number of Citi Thank You Points you want to transfer, starting at only 1 point. Scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions, check the box to show agreement, and click the Review Share button.
To complete the transfer, your recipient will need to send you their Citi Thank You Points account number. To find this number, have them log into their Citi Thank You Points account, click the white down arrow and you will see your Citi Thank You account number.
Review the information entered, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions, check the box to show agreement, and click the Submit button.
Congratulations, your have successfully shared your Citi Thank You Points and your balance will be updated instantly.
To see all the activity in your Citi Thank You Points account (including transfers), click Points Summary on the left hand side, then click the View as a List tab in the center of the screen.
Your recipient will receive the following email, showing that the Citi Thank You Points will expire in 90 days from the date listed on the email.
If your recipient logs into their Citi Thank You Points account, they can view the transaction details by clicking Points Summary on the left hand side and clicking the View as a List tab in the middle of the screen. The Citi Thank You Points transfer will show up right away. It is also a good idea to click on the View All Expiring Points component to see how many points you have that are expiring.
Since I have several Citi Thank You Points earning credit cards and bank accounts, I have Citi Thank You Points expiring on various dates, with the majority of points expiring in late 2018 or later.
