  1. 1. All Citi TY points are watermarked to the Credit Card/Bank Account that earned them; this includes Customer Service Adjustments (e.g., 5k points as an apology given by a customer service rep for a customers inconvenience – for a billing mistake, etc.)

    2. It is important to note that taxable TY points *cannot* be transferred to partners. Customer Service Adjustment TY points *are* taxable, and cannot be transferred to partners. If checking-account point-bonuses are taxable (I don’t know for sure as I’ve never had a checking-account bonus), then those TY points *also cannot* be transferred to partners.
