Points earned with the Citi ThankYou Premier can be combined with Citi ThankYou Preferred and Citi Prestige before transferring to partner airlines for air ticket redemption. Along with the other card benefits, such as trip protection and zero foreign transaction fee, the Citi ThankYou Premier is a decent option for international travel.
