The best way(s) to use 180k Thank You points if you are into them I guess. I cashed out mine for Singapore Airlines and we are on the 24 month penalty box period 🙂
This blogger really loves Citi and the Thank You program. Which I think it is way behind the two other main banks (Chase Ultimate Rewards and AMEX Membership Rewards). Like in a distant third! A Public Love Letter to Citi and Thank You Program.
Remember when the big Titan mile bloggers were saying “No worries about the USA based airlines devaluing, we can use the foreign airlines”. Well in the past week, we had Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways take a HUGE ax to the value of their loyalty programs. So, not to stay behind, Japan Airlines devalues BIG too! Lol, the joke is on you. But noooooo, you will NEVER read how you can NOT fly free anymore!
Not sure where this came from all of a sudden…but Alaska Airlines now allows you to use their miles to book hotels. You should not even think about it okay?
