Convert Your Citi Points to Avios AND Get a 40% Bonus

Qatar Airways Privilege Club is offering a 40% bonus when converting bank points into Avios. The promotion will run until June 30, 2022.

The maximum bonus actually requires you to convert at least 20,000 points, as you get…

  • 20% bonus when you convert less than 20,000 points
  • 40% bonus when converting 20,000 points or more
  • The bonus is per transaction (rather than cumulative)

The bonus will not show up right away. Privilege Club will take up to 45 days to add the bonus to your balance.

  • Star Alliance: Avianca LifeMiles, EVA Air Infinity Mileage Lands, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus, Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles

  • SkyTeam: Aeromexico Club Premier, Air France KLM Flying Blue
  • Non-alliance: Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest, JetBlue True Blue, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
