Citi ThankYou is offering a 50% bonus on point transfers to JetBlue until April 30.

If you have a Citi ThankYou Premier or Prestige card, that means every 1,000 ThankYou points gets you 1,200 JetBlue points, compared to 800 points without the bonus.

That unlocks some really good values for your ThankYou points if you don’t have a big balance lying around.

While JetBlue points are usually worth about 1.4 cents each, you can find even higher values on many flights if you shop around. That’s because JetBlue tends to make the value per point higher on flights that are already cheap in cash.

Here’s a Boston to Aruba flight. It’s 9,500 JetBlue points + $16 in taxes or $167 in cash.

With the transfer bonus, you need just 8,000 Citi points + $16 to book the flight. That’s a respectable 1.9 cents per point in value.

Here’s Long Beach to New York. It’s 10,100 JetBlue points + $6 in taxes, or $184 in cash.

With the transfer bonus you need to transfer 9,000 Citi points, which gives you a full 2 cents per point in value.

And you can clean out even really small balances using this deal.

This New York to Charleston flight is just 5,800 JetBlue points + $6 in taxes, or $92 in cash.

Transferring 5,000 Citi points covers the flight, netting you 1.7 cents per point in value.

So if you don’t have a lot of ThankYou points lying around, checking low fares on JetBlue and taking advantage of this transfer bonus is an easy way to save hundreds of dollars on your next trip. You can currently book JetBlue flights up until the end of October, and by the time this promo is over at the end of April you’ll be able to book flights close to the end of the year.
