Upcoming Citi ThankYou Promotion
Citi will soon offer a 30% transfer bonus for Virgin Atlantic. That means that you can transfer 1,000 Citi ThankYou Points to receive 1,300 Virgin Atlantic miles.
This offer will run from February 19 through March 18, 2023. So you need to wait until Sunday to transfer your points and book these Virgin awards.
By stacking these promotions you should get a very good discount on the miles portion of these awards. But taxes and fees are still quite high.
A trip from New York (JFK) to Manchester (MAN) for example is normally priced at 20,000 + $439 in taxes and fees. During this Virgin sale, the miles portion goes down to 14,000. And if you’re taking advantage of the Citi ThankYou promotion, you would need to use less than 11,000 ThankYou points.
