Citi Launches ‘Smart Savings’/’Deals Just For You’ – Competitor To AmEx Sync Offers
Citi has officially launched their competitor to American Express offers called ‘Deals Just For You’ or ‘Citi Smart Savings’. Citi had originally named it Deals Just For You, but it looks like since launching a few days ago they’ve rebranded it to Citi Smart Savings.
What Is Citi Smart Savings?
Citi describes Deals Just For You as follows:
Deals Just for You are merchant offers that reward you with savings when you use your Citi® card at places you normally shop or which may be relevant to you. You’ll receive emails alerting you to these savings offers as they become available. You can also view them on Citi.com.
Simply sign on to Account Online for the Citi credit card you want to use to shop, select Deals Just for you from the Benefits and Services menu then use that card to take advantage of the savings.
You can also use Citi’s mobile app to view Deals Just for You and access them from the Citi credit card activity page.
You must use your Citi credit card associated with the offer to receive the savings.
These offers are non-transferable.
Citi Cards does not provide the goods and services associated with these offers directly and is not responsible for the goods, services, claims or representations related to them.
Here is how to access it:
- Click Benefits & Services
- Click Deals Just For You
- You should see the option to add different offers to your account, a list of offers that you’ve already added and also the offers you’ve already redeemed
All of the offers that Citi have launched with look to be a percentage back with a maximum on how much you can earn per offer or spend $x amount and receive $x back. Here are some examples:
- David’s Cookies Online: $5 back with $50+ in spend
- Teavana Online: $15 back with $150+ in spend
- Starbucks: 20% cash back with $4 maximum back
- Hilton: 10% cash back with $50 maximum back
- Chili’s: 10% cash back with $12.5 maximum back
None of the offers are very interesting apart from the Starbucks offer, but at a maximum of only $4 back that isn’t exactly exciting here. Plenty of other card issuers have tried to copy American Express’ success with sync offers, but have failed to produce any consistently good offers. Let’s hope Citi’s offering gets better than their initial start.
