Hilton Cardholders: Consider Your Options ASAP

For a while Hilton has offered all of the following co-branded credit cards:

Hilton Honors Card from American Express with no annual fee
Citi Hilton Honors Card with no annual fee

Optimizing Spend on Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! While today is about stuffing yourself like a Roman, tomorrow and Monday are about shopping. Dun dun dun....

...are you ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

Before you dive into Thanksgiving prep madness today, slow down with a cup of coffee (or maybe a glass of wine is more appropriate? I heard the in-laws were coming) and take a few minutes to think about how you're going to optimize your Black Friday spending. Whether you're planning on shopping online or braving the crowds, chances are you plan on taking advantage of the sales.

Citi ThankYou Points Transfer to Avianca LifeMiles

Citi ThankYou Points have added Avianca LifeMiles as a 1:1 transfer partner.

This is amazing news because Avianca LifeMiles can be used to book Star Alliance award space--the world's most available--without fuel surcharges at fair award prices--often much better than the prices offered by United MileagePlus for the same awards.

To transfer ThankYou Points to LifeMiles, sign into your citi.com account, and choose ThankYou Rewards under Rewards & Benefits.

Then select Points Transfer under More Ways to Redeem.

ThankYou Points can be transferred in increments of 1,000 points.

The Citi / AAdvantage Executive World Elite MasterCard is a great card for many people
