Through Dec 31, 2015, Etihad is offering a 25% bonus when you transfer your points from other loyalty programs to Etihad Guest.
Citi ThankYou points can be transferred to Etihad Guest Program at 1:1 ratio, as long as you have a qualifying credit card. This promotion is offered by Etihad, so you would not see any reference to the 25% bonus in the Citi ThankYou Portal.
You could also transfer points from other loyalty programs like Marriott , Hilton etc… Starwood point transfers to Etihad Guest are not eligible for the 25% bonus from this promotion (you will still get 5,000 bonus miles for every 20,000 star points transferred to Etihad Guest – No option to double dip)
25% bonus will be awarded as long as the transfer is initiated before Dec 31, 2015
What can you do with Etihad Guest Miles?
Etihad Guest miles can be used to upgrade your paid ticket in Economy to Business class, even if the ticket is issued by your company.
You can also book award tickets using Etihad Guest miles, here is how you can find the availability .

Etihad offered a similar promotion in the recent past, however Etihad changed the terms (during the mid of the promotion) to reflect that the 25% bonus is valid for UAE members.
I am still following up with Etihad for my 25% bonus miles from that promotion.
