Conclusion

As you can see there’s a lot of overlap between transfer partners. Finnair and Hainan are exclusive to Capital One. While Thai and Turkish are exclusive to the Citi ThankYou program. Many people transfer Ultimate Rewards to Hyatt points since they tend to be more valuable than other hotel program points.

Citi and Amex regularly offer bonuses on transfers, (like this one to Jetblue). Transferring during bonus periods is the best way to get maximum value. For this reason, you shouldn’t speculatively transfer your points until you either have a specific redemption in mind or there is a bonus.
