    As part of signing up you must give CITI the following permissions:

    Citi ThankYou Point Sharing is requesting permission to do the following:
    • Access my basic information
      Includes name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, list of friends, and any other information I've made public
    • Access my profile information
      Birthday
    • Send me email
      Citi ThankYou Point Sharing may email me directly at XXXXXXX ·
    • Post to Facebook as me
      Citi ThankYou Point Sharing may post status messages, notes, photos, and videos on my behalf
    • Access my data any time
      Citi ThankYou Point Sharing may access my data when I'm not using the application
    With all the privacy issues lately and all the hacking that goes on, I don't think it is worth the risk for 2,500 points.

    It makes no sense why Facebook allows this BS but requires us to create accounts using our real names and is always warning us not to share account information like passwords.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think the Facebook API allows apps to be granular with respect to posting. Obviously they do this so that they can then post on your wall saying "oh look at the cool thing I did, come join!" but the wording itself is just plain insane.

    But that's my guess... apps can't do "one of" the items (like post on your wall as you OR post a picture OR do something else, they need to be granted access to everything).

    It's incredibly stupid, and if nothing else you can always a) use a fake account or b) revoke the rights as soon as you're done with the app.

    Has anyone else had difficulty linking their account? I always access my Thank You Rewards after logging into Citi so I don't have a separate Thank You Rewards log-in and password. The app won't accept my Citi log-in and password and Thank You Rewards won't let me create a separate log-in.

    Same here. I've tried to set up a separate log in online to TYR, but the thing won't let me.
    And of course, without the separate login, it's impossible to take advantage of thie promo... :rolleyes:

    Just redeemed my 2500 points for a walmart gift card. Can't beat $25 for linking a facebook account.

    I have 339 points that I would like to donate to someone. (Awards start at 1K, and these points expire Dec. 31, 2013.)
    I'm signed up to share them - but who do I share them with?? Can't figure out how to give them away!!

    From the ThankYou Citi Rewards mailer recently:
    "Thank You Points earned on your account will be expiring on December 31, 2013, and we will be closing your ThankYou member Account at that time. We encourage you to redeem your ThankYou Points prior to Dec. 31, 2013, for any of the great rewards that Citi ThankYou Rewards has to offer. You can redeem your points at www.thankyou.com."
    I was hoping to donate them to a larger cause - but I can't figure out how to find the larger causes . . .
    If you will log into www.thankyou.com, you will find there is a place where you can sign up and create a "Pool".
    I bet there are a bunch of us who have a few points -- together it would make a nice donation to a charity or some such.
    Any ideas? We just need to create a "Pool" -- and then each of us needs to xfer our points to the Pool before Dec. 31. The pool has to spend them by Dec. 31 as well, I am certain.
    Any ideas?

    Milepoint - how about you set up some kind of end goal for donated points, and ask us to donate our ThankYou Points to your cause?

    I went to the ThankYou "app" on FB and entered my ThankYou login info. I never saw anything about 2500 points. Is this normal?
