The Citi ThankYou Rewards program has just launched a transfer bonus to one of the issuer’s hotel transfer partners, Wyndham Rewards.
Let’s take a look at the details of the promotion to see if it is worth taking advantage of on your upcoming travels.
Details of Wyndham Rewards Transfer Bonus
Usually, Citi ThankYou Rewards points transfer to Wyndham at a 1:1 rate. This means every 1,000 Citi points transferred gets you 1,000 Wyndham points.
Now through September 16, 2023, you’ll receive a 20% bonus on transferred points. In other words, you’ll enjoy a temporary transfer rate of 1:1.2 — or 1,200 Wyndham points for every 1,000 Citi points you transfer.
Is It Worth It?
If you are making upcoming travel plans and are considering staying at a Wyndham hotel, this transfer bonus might feel like great timing for you.
However, we value Citi ThankYou points at 1.6 cents per point and Wyndham points at 0.9 cents per point. Even with the 20% transfer bonus, it’s like swapping 1.6 cents per point for 1.08 cents per point in value.
That said, transferring your points during this promotion could make sense if you locate a high-value redemption that’s worth greater than 1.6 cents per point. Remember that one of the best ways to redeem Wyndham points is Vacasa vacation rentals, with more than 44,000 properties worldwide to choose from. You can book Vacasa rooms for just 15,000 points per night — or 13,000 points with Citi’s latest transfer bonus!
It’s also a good idea if need to top off the Wyndham points in your account in order to make the redemption possible, or simply are in a position where you would rather save the cash. Either way, you’ll want to crunch the numbers to make your final decision.Hot Tip:

Ultimately, this 20% transfer bonus could be perfectly timed for travelers looking to boost their Wyndham Rewards point balance. For those that are planning to take advantage of this deal, make sure you do so before the promotion ends on September 16, 2023.
