Great news for those looking to boost their balance of Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios, as Citi is now offering a 30% transfer bonus to Qatar for a limited time. Here are the details of the transfer promotion, along with a few redemption ideas to help you get maximum value.

Transfer Bonus Details

Through May 31, 2024, you’ll receive a 30% bonus when transferring Citi ThankYou Points to Qatar Avios. ThankYou Points usually transfer at a 1:1 rate to Qatar, making the new rate 1:1.3 for a limited time.

Note that this transfer bonus is offered via Qatar, and not the Citi ThankYou Rewards program directly, so you will see the 30% transfer bonus on the Qatar promotion page but not on the Citi website.

You should make certain you have an idea of what redemption you’d like to make before completing your transfer, as once you move your ThankYou Points to Qatar, you cannot move them back. This brings us to the subject of getting great value out of your Qatar Avios.

The Privilege Club program isn’t quite as lucrative as some other award charts, but there is definitely some great value to be had here.

Fly Qsuite From the U.S. to Doha

Qatar’s business class cabin, Qsuite, is widely regarded as one of the best business class seats in the sky. Usually, a one-way ticket aboard Qsuite from the U.S. to Doha will set you back 70,000 Avios. But thanks to the 30% transfer bonus, you’d need to transfer just 54,000 Citi ThankYou Points in order to book this ticket.

Fly Qsuite From the U.S. to India or Pakistan

If you’re keen to visit India or Pakistan, a one-way ticket from the U.S. in Qsuite will cost you just 80,000 Avios. That is just 10,000 more Avios than it takes to fly to Doha for roughly an extra 3.5 hours of flight time in Qsuite! Thanks to the transfer bonus, you’d need to transfer just 62,000 ThankYou Points to make this booking.

Plus, you can fly to Ahmedabad, Delhi, Goa, or Mumbai in India or Islamabad or Karachi in Pakistan.

Fly Qsuite for 30+ Hours to New Zealand

New Zealand is a bucket-list destination for many travelers due to its beautiful landscapes. But getting there is no small task as the flights you take to get there will be extremely long. Given that, you’ll want to make sure those extremely long flights are as comfortable as possible.

You can do that by booking a one-way Qsuite ticket for “just” 120,000 Avios, which is 93,000 ThankYou Points, before the 30% bonus. This might seem like an absurd amount of miles for a one-way ticket, but consider that this flight consists of over 30 hours of Qsuite flight time from the U.S. to Doha and Doha to Auckland — you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable way to get to New Zealand than that!

Final Thoughts

Just remember to have a specific redemption planned before finalizing any transfers, and make sure you do so before the May 31, 2024, deadline!

Although the Qatar Avios program might often be overlooked by most travelers, getting a 30% transfer bonus along with targeting sweet spot redemptions is a fantastic way for you to get some incredible value out of this promotion.
