Citi Premier 65,000/70,000 Points Signup Bonus ($95 Annual Fee Not Waived) – In Branch Only (Match Online)

Update 2/10/21: Still available.

Update 6/27/20: There is also an offer of 70,000 points available in branch for Citi Gold members. I imagine it’s possible for Citi Gold members to match this offer online as well. Hat tip to reader Mary

Update 3/18/20: People have been successfully matched to this offer even when they have applied online. Particularly useful at the moment

Update 3/4/20: Has been extended again until 3/6/20 so seems to be confirmed to be constantly extended. Hat tip to TNSepta

Update 2/23/20: Reader cy1111 reports that it’s now available through 2/27/20. Seems like they just keep extended it for the following week.

Update 2/19/20: Now showing an end date of 2/20/20. Hat tip chowfuntime

Update 2/9/20: Deal is showing an end date of 2/13, not sure if this normally just gets auto extended or not.

The Offer

No direct link to offer, available in branch only

  • Signup for the Citi Premier card and get 65,000 ThankYou points as a bonus after you spend $4,000 within the first three months.

Card Details

Our Verdict

Current online sign up bonus is 60,000 points with the same minimum spend requirement, so this is basically an additional 5,000 points if you apply in branch. We have seen an offer of 60,000 points with the annual fee waived in the past.

Keep in mind, the bonus is not available if you’ve opened or closed a Citi Rewards+, Preferred, Premier, or Prestige card within the past 24 months. As always make sure you read these things everybody should know about Citi credit cards before applying. We’ll add this to our list of the best credit card sign up bonuses.

“bonus is not available if you’ve opened or closed a Citi Rewards+, Preferred, Premier, or Prestige card within the past 24 months.” if I downgraded Premier to totally different one, does it count as closed?

This has been asked before, but not recently: can anybody please point me to a photo or screenshot of the 65,000 in-branch offer (not the Citi Gold offer). Seems that this is a requirement to get a match from the 60,000 point standard offer. Thanks.

I just tried calling and messaging. Have Citigold but none of Citi’s reps from several departments were able to find the offer. I’ll try going in-branch next and call my Citigold client account manager. Anyone have any luck any other way?

Is there a phone number or any type of secure message where Citi can tell me when I closed a specific card? I had a Prestige card I closed in Jan 2019, but Credit Karma shows it closed in April 2019.

Hi Doc,

They changed the rewards rate for this card.
It shows me 3x travel, 3x gas, 3x groceries, $100 hotel credit if you book $500 or more through thankyou.com

Is the 70,000 offer in branch only for Citigold members or anyone can apply for that? Thank you

Seems like only Citigold, but I haven’t been to a branch to check.

Can you apply for this if you already have one?

Asking cuz if you cancel you gotta wait 24 months.

Yes.

I believe you can have multiples of the same card. Just make sure a full 24 months has passed since you opened your current premier.

Same question myself–overdue for product changing my Premier, but would rather apply for a. 2nd since I am > 24 months since the bonus if Citi still allows one person to hold 2.

Any one have luck recently with increased offers in branch for citigold customers?

Just talked to a banker today who said the 70k, no annual fee is still available in branch.

I called earlier to 2 branches and they said no 65-70k offers were available to gold members 🙁

If you have a CitiGold account, you should have a dedicated “Relationship Manager.” Check the app in the “Services” tab at the bottom. There should be a name and a phone number (at least there is for me, and I don’t think this is unique).

Has anyone gotten this recently/is this offer still active? I called my closest branch just now (trying to avoid going out needlessly) and they said that the in-branch offer is at 60k, higher for Citigold (not Citi Priority). I’ve been meaning to get this card, so I wanted to confirm before I go ahead and apply online

I had a citi premier card that was amex that was closed due to inactivity. Does that mean the date where I need to wait just got resetted 24 months from that date?
