Yes you can redeem TY points for either a Student Loan or Mortgage check.

I got $350 which was my sign-on bonus for the card.


What card has a $350 bonus?

It was a targeted mail offer for the Thank You. I received at least 2 per week. I might have gotten one as high as $400, but I tossed it aside. I've also gotten offers for $250 and $100. $350 was the highest offer that I actually held on to.

I was able to redeem TY points today for my student loan. :smileyhappy:

 

I forget who on the thread mentioned this option, but if not for them, I never would have given this card a thought. 


That is awesome.  I didn't know you could do that.
How much did you redeem for?

Sweet!
Memo to self...add Citi Thank You card to list of future cards to obtain in January 2014. LOL!


This was a targeted mail offer. On the Citi site, the Thank You doesn't come with any sign-on offer. The TY Preferred may only come with $100 offer. So this was a really good deal.

Public TYP is currently $200, but $350 for TY seems pretty good.   My wife just got an offer for 60K miles for the Citi AA Plat Visa, so guess they are sometimes generous.
