Same here. I even called TYP and a rep said the info (about transfer to airline) is false.

Maybe they are rolling it out and its taking time to load in everybody's account?

It is strange they wouldn't have a splash screen on thankyou.com announcing the new exchange options...

Anybody confirm this yet?

EDIT: I just confirmed that the ThankYou Premier and Prestige cards have the transfer option. I was not able to confirm it for any other ThankYou cards. However it is available for the Citi Chairman cards too.

They said it should be live on all accounts now.

Everything else is just a rumor about new partners being negotiated but no time frame yet.

I have the Premier card and don't see the option in my account at this time.

Same here. I don't see an exchange option at all. Can someone post a direct link or a screen capture so we can see what we're looking for?

Edit: Ur, maybe.... Some in the DDF are reporting that they cannot see the transfer. I don't have any TY card, so I can't test personally.
Please see this poster on DDF that claimed he could see the Transfer Option and now said he actually did not have a TYP account when being asked to post a screen shot...

May be everybody is being had, including Dan of Dan's Deal.

BINGO!!! Its already in effect! You can now actually transfer Citi Thank You points into BA or Singapore! Just log in into your account and select Rewards > Thank You Points Exchange > Exchange Now, then select the airline you wish to transfer, either British Airways or Singapore Airlines, enter your FF account number and the amount of points you wish to transfer and you're all set! Long Live DansDeals!

Meshuganar,
Please post a screenshot of the transfer option.
This would be the best way to prove, once and forever.


believe it or not, I don't have a Thank You account.

That sucks. I don't have the cards but I had a Citi ThankYou agent walk me through the process of exchanging to BA or SQ.

Call up and see if they can help.

How did he walk you through if you dont have the necessary card?

Up to now it just seems to me rumors beget rumors with some people post things that they cannot provide any solid proof when asked, and admit they dont even have a TY account - if one does not have a TY account, how can one "log in" and see the "Exchange Option"?

Is the "Transfer" option you're seeing the feature that allows you to share TY points with other people? That's what I see (Premier card) but no Point Exchange (to other Airline Programs) function.

My latest churn has been on hold waiting for this to develop and now the 100,000 Capital One deal expired!

Called 1-800-842-6596. Told them I wanted to transfer TY pts to BA.

They told me the steps that have been posted along on Dan's Deal Rewards->TY Exchange->Exchange Now.

Never spoke about my account just about transferring the TY pts to BA or SQ.

Asked about future transfer partners or bonus offers. Than the conversation ended.

I wanted to see if I should get these in my next app to rebuild my BA balance. Guess I will have to keep waiting.

I check my account, no transfer to airline or hotel possible.

Then, I called the above number. Rep checked with supervisor, and said the transfer to Singapore is in the works, but not yet in effect. She does not know about the BA transfer.

This transfer isn't effect until the fat lady sings.
