Citi Prestige 75,000 Bonus Thank You Points Now Live
- Get 75,000 bonus Thank You points when signing up for a Citi Prestige card and spending $7,500 within three months
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 $450
- $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
We already knew last week that Citi would be increasing the bonus to 75,000 points. It’s a high spend threshold – but well worth it if you aren’t excluded due to the 24 month rule and can meet the $7,500 in spend. Remember, you can also get two $250 airline credits within the first year which more than offset the first annual fee.
There are also tons of other changes that went into effect for Cit Prestige today, including negative changes (no golf benefit, lower point redemption value to 1.25 CPP, no Admiral’s Club, changes in 4th night hotel benefit) and positive changes (cash redemption of 1 CPP, metal card, and an online booking benefit which you might not want to use).
Citi relationship clients can also get the Prestige card in-branch with the same signup bonus and just a $350 annual fee.
As an alternative to the Prestige card, you can signup for the Citi Premier 50,000 bonus Thank You points signup bonus which just needs $4,000 in spend to get the bonus. It might also be worth seeing if this offer is available in branch as they have been known to offer the lower annual fee of $350 that is usually reserved for Citi Priority Account Package holders. If anybody does go in branch, share your results in the comments.
