Citibank PremierMiles was my favourite credit card till the time they moved from 1PM:1 Airmile for transfer partners. But, for booking airline tickets, you still come out ahead since you could earn 5 airmiles instead of the 4 with other credit cards provided by Citi or other card companies (exclusive of co-branded cards with airlines).
Citibank used to offer a partnership to transfer miles to Jet Airways from PremierMiles, which went away a couple of years back. Since then, the transfer partners for Citibank Premiermiles in India used to be:
- BA Avios
- CX AsiaMiles
- DL Skymiles
- EY Guest Miles
- SQ KrisFlyer miles
- TH Royal Orchid Plus miles
- AI Flying Returns Miles
- Malaysia Airlines Enrich Miles
- Eva Air Infinity Mileage Lands
- Qatar Privilege Club
On the hotel partners, they had Taj Inner Circle, Hilton HHonors and IHG Rewards Club as partners.
Now, reader Aditya Srinath pointed me to the new list, which added the following transfer partners earlier this week where 2 PremierMiles = 1 Airmile:
- KLM/AF Flying Blue
- Jet Airways JetPrivilege
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
Also, they’ve added a new transfer partner on the hotel side, which is Club Carlson where you get 2 PremierMiles = 1 Club Carlson point.
I think this is excellent news and brings more value to the users of the PremierMiles product. Of course, right now there is also the 25000 miles promotion on International spends going on, which gives another opportunity to add miles to your PremierMiles account. I’ll sure look to getting a PremierMiles card back in my pocket in the coming days.
What are your views on this addition? Any transfer partners you’d love to use?
