Transfer Citi Points To Accor And Get A 50% Bonus!

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

1,000 Citi points normally transfer into 500 Accor points.

Through 11/30, you will get a 50% transfer bonus, meaning you’ll receive 750 Accor points for every 1,000 Citi points. The 50% bonus will post within 10 business days of the transfer.

You can redeem 2,000 Accor points for 40 Euros, currently US $42.85 towards any Accor hotel brands, such as Banyan Tree, Fairmont, Novotel, Raffles, SLS, Sofitel, and more. You can redeem points for stays or you can apply points to your folio during your stay.

That means the value of each Accor point is 2 Euro cents each. With the current exchange rate, that’s equal to 2.14 US cents per Accor point. Normally that would value each Citi point at 1.07 cents each, but with the 50% bonus that gives a value of 1.6 cents per Citi point.

Last month I wrote about using Citi points for luxury Leaders Club hotels, which also provides a value of 1.6 cents each, though that doesn’t require a transfer bonus.

If you or a friend has one of the following Citi cards, you can transfer points into miles:

  • Citi Premier has a 60,000 point bonus for spending $4,000 in 3 months, 3 points per dollar on airfare, hotels, travel agents, groceries, gas, and dining. $95 annual fee. Read more here.

Citi no-annual fee cards that are fantastic for earning points, but require one of the cards above for points transfers include:

  • The Citi Double Cash card offers 2% cash back or 2 points per dollar spent everywhere that can be transferred into ThankYou points. If you also have a Citi Premier Card you can transfer points into miles. No annual fee. Read more here.
  • The Citi Custom Cash Card offers 5 points per dollar on up to $500 in purchases in your top eligible spending category each billing cycle. This is marketed as 5% cash back, but will actually come in the form of 5 ThankYou points per dollar spent! Eligible categories include Restaurants, Gas Stations, Grocery Stores, Select Travel, Select Transit, Select Streaming Services, Drugstores, Home Improvement Stores, Fitness Clubs, and Live Entertainment. You will also get 0% APR on purchases and balance transfers for 15 months. No annual fee. Read more here.
  • The Citi Rewards+ Card offering 20,000 points for spending $1,500 in 3 months. This card can’t transfer points on its own, but can transfer points if you have one of the Citi cards above. This card automatically rounds up rewards earned on every purchase to the nearest 10 points, meaning you earn 10 points on a $0.50 Amazon balance reload. Earn 2 points on $6K in annual spending at supermarkets, and a 10% points rebate when you redeem points, up to a 10K points rebate per year. If you also have a Citi Premier Card you can transfer points into miles and get a 10% points rebate on transferred or redeemed miles. No annual fee. Read more here.
