Citi Prestige 75,000 Bonus + $350 Annual Fee for Relationship Customers

The Offer

  • Get 75,000 bonus Thank You points when signing up for a Citi Prestige card and spending $7,500 within three months
  • Pay just $350 annual fee when signing up in-branch

The in-branch $350 fee is for Citi relationship customers only – Citigold, Citi Priority, or Private Banking clients. It’s a standard offer for relationship clients, but the 75,000 offer didn’t click in together with the $350 fee until a couple of days ago.

Card Details

Make sure you’re aware of the new Citi application rule: signup bonus ThankYou points are not available if you have had ThankYou Preferred, ThankYou Premier or Citi Prestige cards opened or closed in the past 24 months.

  • Annual fee of $350 for relationship customers
  • $50 additional user fee
  • $250 annual air travel credit
  • 4th hotel night free benefit
  • No foreign transaction fees

Card earns the following rates:

  • 3x points per $1 spent on all airlines, hotels and travel agencies
  • 2x points per $1 spent on all spend at restaurants and select entertainment
  • 1x point per $1 spent on all other purchases

See our full review on Citi Prestige here.

Our Verdict

In the past, people who weren’t relationship clients were able to get bankers to push through a $350 application for them, but that might be a thing of the past.

Another important thing is that I believe Citi relationship clients used to get the $350 annual fee even when they applied online; the system automatically recognized them and billed them the lower annual fee. Again, I’m not sure if this still holds true – please let us know in the comments.

We’ve written a few posts about the 75,000 offer which is available online as well with the $450 fee:

I am not a relationship client, didn’t apply for the card, and didn’t get the card. Hope the datapoint is useful to someone.

Agree. Thought it was mildly funny. But no need to resort to abusive language.

Interesting, I am not a relationship client, didn’t apply for the card, and yet I got the card. So YMMV.

this is actually really funny because i assume you are mocking the n00bs who consistently give BS DPs.

“0/24 instant approval CSR. no checking. first chase card. 6 month credit history. hope this helps someone.”

The $350 relationship annual should be available online. Citi does not have a brnach everywhere and they should know that. Unless of course their IT is saying they have branch where they’re not supposed to. Certainly not in Hawaii.

I’ll be the first to post an actually relevant DP. My 2-year-old Prestige just posted AF and it’s still $350, even though I downgraded my Citigold more than a year ago.

Planning on opening a 2nd Prestige to churn. I will probably go for the online app and hope it still recognizes me as Citigold like my 1st card did.

Blease post again about your luck with the 2nd prestige. Thousands of readers (well, me) are waiting to hear DP’s about this (mine renews next month).

Max, did you open the checking account before or after credit card application? I am think about applying the card first, if denied then there is no need to open the checking account.
