    Good evening everyone, in this post, I will show you how to book American Airlines flights through the Citi Thank You Points website and get 1.6 cents per point (CPP) in value. Travel Codex recently reported that codeshare flights with American Airlines / US Airways flight numbers can be purchased for 1.6 CPP also through the Citi Thank You website. The value you get out of your Citi Thank You Points is dependent on the Citi credit cards you have and the flights you book. Here is a summary of the possible values: Citi Prestige Credit Card + American Airlines / US Airways Flight (and codeshares) = 1.6 CPP Citi Prestige Credit Card + All Other Flights = 1.33 CPP Citi Premier Credit Card + Any Flight = 1.25 CPP Citi Preferred/Forward/Other Credit Card + Any Flight = 1.0 CPP If you have more than 1 Citi Thank You Point earning credit card, all your Citi Thank You Points can be pooled into 1 account and will be worth the same as your highest earning credit card. For example, I have a Citi Prestige, Premier, Forward, and Citigold Checking account and they all earn Citi Thank You Points worth up to 1.6 CPP. Anyway, let's get started with booking an American Airlines flight. After logging into your Citi Thank You Points account, click the Shop tab and then click on Flights.
