Using Turkish Airlines Miles
While the Turkish Airlines program may not be one of the most well-known, it does have some excellent redemption sweet spots from North America. Before transferring points, you should definitely check out the post linked above for a detailed review of the Miles & Smiles program. Great redemption options include:
- North America to Europe one way in business class from 45,000 miles plus taxes and fees
- North America to India roundtrip in business class for 105,000 miles plus taxes and fees
- Transcontinental flight within the US for 15K/25K/40K round trip plus taxes and fees
If your travel plans permit you to take advantage of one of Turkish Airlines sweet spots, then this promotion is a no-brainer. Citi ThankYou points are currently the only transfer partner for the Turkish Miles & Smiles program, so you'll need enough Citi points (with the 25% bonus) to reach the desired redemption. On the other hand, it is not worth transferring points speculatively no matter how good the bonus. The loss of flexibility will almost always outweigh the benefit of a transfer bonus.
