Redeeming miles for El Al without fuel surcharges:

With Qantas miles you can redeem for El Al award tickets without any fuel surcharges! You read more about this option here.

  • A one-way coach ticket from NYC to Tel Aviv is 42K Qantas miles and there are no fuel surcharges.
  • A one-way premium economy ticket from NYC to Tel Aviv is 63K Qantas miles and there are no fuel surcharges.
  • A one-way business class ticket from NYC to Tel Aviv is 78K Qantas miles and there are no fuel surcharges.

If you were using AMEX points to transfer into El Al Matmid points, that one-way business class award is currently 112.5K points plus $350 in fees and will be going up to 127.5K points plus $450 in fees next April! It’s significantly cheaper to book that trip by transferring Citi ThankYou points to Qantas.

See a comparison chart of Qantas versus Matmid in this post.

How hard would it be to use the quanta miles to book travel to Israel during the summer months?


How would you get the most value from these points?


just applied for this card in June for my self and for DW for 50k bonus, would they match it to the new offer?

Gopi Pentakota

They rejected my match request but second time when I tried to ask. For. Courtesy points they gave me the 10k


did u call or sm’d? and what did u say to them?


Can anyone recommend a good way to get to Thailand using Points or Miles?

Thank you.


Am I asking a stupid question? Or, is this just the wrong forum?

seeks like everyone but me gets a reply.




Subject to 5/24?


Do they have a business card? I spend tens of thousands in gas per month. Is there a max of 3X for gas?


Costco Visa gives you 4% on gas worldwide (no foreign transactions fees) including at Costco gas stations which other credit cards exclude. One problem with all these credit cards though is you only get the credit if is categorized properly.

I have Boost mobile which my credit card did not recognize as cell phone service to get the 5% back that they advertised. I had some gas stations come up as convenience stores so lost the 4% cashback with that card. Very frustrating. I doubt people actually check to make sure they are getting these advertised benefits.


Dan, would there be a way to transfer Amex MR points to Qantas (perhaps through starwood), and if yes, would it be worth it in the end?

appreciate it

my brother has 5,000 singapore miles on his account expiring soon can i transfer from my citi ty premier bonus to his singapore account to get a total of 70,00 miles and avoid getting shutdown like with chase for perk abuse? thank you for your help


If he has a thank you points account then u can transfer thank you points to him, and he could transfer to his Singapore accnt


Is the Qantas partner affected by the elal devaluation? will it stay the same price?


Do you think someone can get approved if they have minimal credit history? If no, what is a good rewards card to start building credit history?


Hi Dan-
You wrote “Your Citi ThankYou points will not expire for as long as they remain a cardholder.” Does that mean as long as you maintain this card or any Citi card.

Also, I checked their site and, with respect to this card, it says simply “Your Points won’t expire.” (https://www.thankyou.com/cms/thankyou/tc.page?cmp=VAN&MID=tc).



Same question here. Will the points still not expire even if i downfrade to a free card after a year


Dan, firstly thanks for all the deals and stuff, I’ve benefited tons of $$,$$$.$$ from you over the years. FYI, it’s not highest ever as I got 100,000 sign up many years ago.


Are these same points that the citi double cash back earns?


Dan, any idea when this expires ? Don’t want to waste a pull in case there’s a spg luxury card 3 day bonus window…


So if I currently have the premier card for many years I can get a second one and receive the bonus? Thanks




We have received your application and further processing is required. We will contact you in approximately 7-10 days regarding our decision. If approved, be sure to visit citicards.com to register and manage your account online. Thank you for requesting a Citi ThankYou® Premier Card.
Did anyone else get this message?


such a message is very typical. either they are backlogged or what to look into you more. u can speed the process (& sometimes even get them to change their mind) by calling their loan dept


When I got approved said the I owe $95 for annual fee. @dan you said it’s waived, is it? Is it automatically?


I opened this card 2 months ago with the 50k bonus, but haven’t received it yet, and just finished spend, any tips or tricks to receive the 60k instead?


Call up number on back and ask to be matched. Might need to do huca


send sm instead, no need for the talking, works better then calling


What do you mean by “sm”


sm= secure message

dan wiener

does anyone know if the citi credit card has travel insurance and purchase insurance?
can anyone comment on comparison between this card and chase sapphire preferred?
i live in israel and travel occasionally. thanks


Is there another Citi card to apply for using a second browser, or does that no longer work?


Further, is there a free citi card which earns points – that way i can cancel this card and keep my points?


Would love to get an answer in regards to this?


Eli; I called them and got the 10K b4 I got the 50K.


Can i close a credit card after 12 months? how will this affect my credit score?
thank you


This depends on your credit history. If you have many lines of credit open for a long time, it likely won’t affect your credit significantly. If you don’t have many lines of credit, it will likely make a more significant impact.

Card Newbie

I’m very new to your forum…but it’s great, thank you! Is this worth doing if I don’t have the chase quadfecta yet? Excellent credit.
Nervous about the 5/24 as I have a few (bad decision before I read this site ) new cards. Also, do store cards (target, childrens place) count for 5/24?


Store cards generally count toward 5/24. Any Personal card in your name counts against 5/24.


What does it mean if I applied and I was instantly approved, but then I get an email saying they are still reviewing my application (I also used their link to check the status and it says they are reviewing), but after I initially submitted the application, it says I was approved for $X


citi IT is being citi IT


3* point on travel will KYAKK and BOOKING.COM fit in this category ?


I dont travel much, so i turn in my points for cash at 1 cent a point. My job doesnt allow me to travel based on a good deal, so when I decide that I am going somewhere, I check out the deals and find that i can do better by getting cash and applying it toward the airfare/hotel than by getting the flight/hotel from the card. So, 3questions:
1. What am i doing wrong?
2. What should i do to get better educated? (besides reading DansDeals which i read voraciously like a good action thriller)
3. Does anyone give cash more than 1 cent per dollar?


I’m no guru but first off, I’d recommend CSR (chase sapphire reserve) so when you want to book w cash you can use your points at 1.5 cents per point). Citi Prestige May give you 1.25 but I find their prices are inflated. There are plenty of cards that would give you 2 cents cash back on general spend so outside of bonus categories (gas, travel etc.) you should just get a Citi Double Cash.


Is it possible to transfer points to chase ultimate rewards? Only credit cards I have are Chase Freedom and Chase Freedom Unlimited. I plan to accumulate the points then open Chase Sapphire Reserve to book airlines. Any suggestions? Thanks!


Do purchases in store at gas stations (not at pump) qualify for 3x TYP’s?




Is this card Visa or Mastercard?


I had a bk in 2011. I currently have over 720 credit score. Only two open credit cards with $400 total debt balance (or about 2% credit usage). Chase denied credit last week due to 2011 bk, they said that automatically eliminates me. Does Citi have the same policy?


I currently have the Citi Prestige and am going to cancel in a couple of months when it renews- I’m not getting any benefit from the 4th night free. If I get the Citi TY Premier will this allow me to keep the Prestige points alive?


So if I currently have the ty preffered card open I CAN get this bonus ?


I have chase preferred. Just go 5000oints. Should I open this citi card also?


Can you 2BM with Citi cards? If yes, what other card do you recommend?


Anyone know?


The answer is that while 2BM is possible with Citibank, they won’t actually allow you to apply for both cards since they have a restriction of only being allowed to apply for one card every 30 days (or is it 90 days?). They would end up making both applications pending and you would have to call and choose which application to process…

Pusheter Yid

How do I get the bonus if I already have the thank you preferred card? Do I open another of the same card under the same name or can I ask to be offered the bonus on spending with the current card?


Don’t know if this was asked. Is it possible to downgrade Citi cards to stop paying annual fees at any point like with Chase?


I applied a few weeks ago and din’t get approved, and just tried again now and got instantly approved!
(which is awesome because I applied before when it was only 50k points)

So give it another try if it didn’t work the first time!


any way to know when this will go until?


Any retention offers for Prestige? My fee just came up and I’m inclined to keep the card (Only $350 due to having been Gold years back). I called in and was not offered anything. Any advice?
Just to confirm – I’m not eligible for this offer as a current Prestige cardholder – right?


When does this offer expire?


Is 7-Eleven coded as a gas station by citi in earning 3 points per doller? like chase does


My credit was very bad for a while, due to listening to bad advice and going into foreclosure. I was not able to have any credit cards at all.

During that time, I asked a close relative with excellent credit to open a credit card for me. That relative has most of the credit cards that you recommend
in order to get bonus points…etc…

He did not have the Barclay World Elite MasterCard, so two years ago he opened that card under his name and listed my husband and myself as authorized users. We, alone, used the card, and paid the balance in full every month.

In addition, we paid off our mortgage completely, and repaired our credit. Each of us has a credit rating close to 800.

We found ourselves traveling frequently on Delta last year, (visiting an elderly relative in Florida)so we decided to take advantage of the points and travel perks offered by the Delta Gold Amex card. We each have a Delta Gold Amex card now (and each of us is an authorized user on the other’s account). We got 60,000 bonus miles on my card, and should soon have 60,000 on my husband’s card.

What we really want is to accumulate enough points to go to Israel. Second of importance, is to be able to travel to and from Florida in comfort.

What do you suggest we do next? .

We’ve considered downgrading the Barclay card to both avoid confusion and to avoid the yearly fee, and then using only the Delta Gold, but the Delta card only gives 1 point per dollar on non-Delta purchases. Barclay gives 2 points across the board, but we don’t get free checked baggage or any of the other perks that make our trips more comfortable.

We are really unsure what makes the most sense. Should we apply for a different card? Can we even get a different card without damaging our credit? We just got the Delta Gold cards in June and August of this year.

Which cards should we ideally be using, and should we concentrate on one, or should we use a variety based on what type of purchases we’re making?

We are pretty much clueless. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!


Is there a way to transfer the points in Delta miles?


Can the card be downgraded prior to second year?


Any idea when this offer expires?


was denied will a call help?


Some are saying offer for 60k will end 10/11


Who is the payment processor on this card (e.g., Visa, MasterCard)?


Any good suggestions for a transfer partner to get to South Africa?


It says retirement benefits can be used for income. Does that mean 401k savings are qualified?


Can I transfer a balance from another credit card; or use this to pay off a different credit card, to spend $4k to get the bonus?


Dan what i should do I got this card 10/30/16?


do chase’s own business cards add to 5/24 count?


i clsoed prestige card on NOV 10 2016 and I see that I had Premier card until around june of 2016 and converted to preferred card since July 2016 and still have this preferred card.

Do I qualify for the bonus?


what will the bonus go down to after tomorrow?


Thx Dan!!


I have citi business, any bonus on that card?



Planning to use these points for a airasia flight from thailand to maldives to get to st regis. Have any experience with airasia out there (or thai airasia) and whether it’s safe? also, did you have any issues in mle customs with your kosher food?



There is no link!


I just called citi and a supervisor told me that I am NOT eligible for the bonus points because I currently have the the thank you premier card, even though it is 6 years old and haven’t received any bonuses for 6 years, I still have the card. I had to have closed it for 24 months and then reapply to get the bonus. Anyone else have this issue?


This is not fun I am not a work computer and cant turn off add blocker 🙁


Are there any foreign transaction fees?


Not working


Just got approved, literally i n the last second!

If approved, be sure to visit citicards.com to register and manage your account online. Thank you for requesting a Citi ThankYou® Premier Card.” ?

What does BM stand for in this comment conversation?


Dan, I signed up for chase sapphire in May and didn’t realize that I need to spend $4k in the first 3 months in order to get the 50K bonus points. Do you know if theres anyway they would give me another month or any period of time to spend the $ and get those points?
