Qatar Airways has launched a month-long promotion in which its offering Privilege Club members a 30% bonus when they convert various banking currencies into Avios. For US readers this means that Citi ThankYou points can now be converted to Avios at a rate of 1 point to 1.3 Avios.

An important thing to be aware of here is that this isn’t a Citi offer. You will not see this offer on Citi.com or on the ThankYou site. This is a Qatar Airways offer so the bonus points will be awarded by the airline and not by the bank.

Key terms

  • This campaign is open to all active Privilege Club members who have a loyalty account with participating partners in the prescribed markets and have a minimum number of rewards points to convert to Avios.
  • Privilege Club members will earn bonus Avios on converting rewards points from a participating partner into Avios.
  • The bonus Avios awarded will be 30% of the number of base Avios converted in a single transaction.
  • The bonus Avios will be calculated per transaction and not on the cumulative sum of base Avios converted from rewards points during the campaign period.
  • The conversion of rewards points to base Avios is subject to the conversion ratio and terms and conditions set forth by the participating partner.
  • All bonus Avios earned will be reflected in your Privilege Club account by 15 June 2024.
  • The bonus Avios will not be awarded if the conversion transaction occurs outside the campaign period under any circumstances.
  • Once the conversion transaction has taken place, the transaction cannot be reversed.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the promotion page

Citi transfers

Citi ThankYou Points transfer over to the Qatar Airways Privilege Club in a ratio of 1:1. Other banking and loyalty currencies may transfer across in different ratios.

Transfers between Citi and Qatar Airways are instantaneous but the bonus points that are awarded by Qatar Airways will not appear in your Privilege Club account for up to 45 days after the transfer has taken place (in previous promotions similar to this one, I received my bonus points after 16 days and 18 days respectively).

Keep in mind that Qatar Airways Avios can be easily transferred across to British Airways so any Citi ThankYou Points that are transferred over can be used to book great value short-haul awards (on various airlines) through the British Airways Executive Club.

Avios within a British Airways Executive account can also be transferred to the Aer Lingus AerClub and Iberia Plus programs both of which offer good low surcharge award options.

Bottom line

Qatar Airways is offering a bonus of 30% for transfers of various banking currencies to the Qatar Airways Privilege Club and the promotion runs through the end of the month. In the US, Citi is the major Qatar Airways partner and with ThankYou points readily available through cards like the card_name and the Citi® Double Cash Card, there should be quite a few people for whom this promotion offers a great chance to boost an Avios balance.
