Citi Introduces New Way to Use ThankYou® Points
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citi ThankYou Rewards members now have two new ways to use their Citi ThankYou® Points – either for an account credit to cover a recent purchase, or to make a donation to charity. With ThankYou Select and Credit, available ThankYou Points can be used to cover purchases in certain categories made with an eligible consumer Citi credit card that participates in ThankYou Rewards. ThankYou members can also use their available points to make a donation to a wide variety of charitable organizations on www.thankyou.com/pointworthy.
“We want our customers to be empowered to use the ThankYou Points they earn for what they want – whether it’s dinner out with the family, groceries or concert tickets”

ThankYou members can use the Select and Credit feature for recent purchases made on an eligible Citi credit card – including dining, entertainment, grocery and drug store purchases, utilities and gas.
