With Citi dropping Hilton as a transfer partner in the next few weeks, I was sort of hoping they’d add something into the mix to replace them. Citi must have been reading my mind, because they’ve just added Avianca LifeMiles as a transfer partner!

As you can see, the transfer ratio is 1,000:1,000. That means the current signup bonus from the Citi ThankYou Preferred–50,000 points–could net you 50,000 LifeMiles. That’s exactly what I expected, given most airlines, except for jetBlue, transfer at a 1:1 ratio.

What’s great about Avianca LifeMiles is that they do not pass surcharges from other carriers onto passengers, rather, they charge $25 per award ticket booked. They have pretty reasonable partner redemption awards, including some interesting domestic US awards.
