Citi Prestige 75,000 Point Signup Bonus Still Available In Branch Until 10/14

Update: A reader was shown an end date of 10/14. & Confirmed still working

Update: Bonus still available but only in branch. Due to expire on 10/7 in branch according to US Credit Card Guide (with a picture confirming this end date).

Offer has expired, if anybody finds a working link please let us know.

Update: Normal direct link no longer works, but this link does (stripped down TPG link).

The 75,000 Citi Prestige offer is now publicly available on the Citi site.

Direct Link to offer (working link)

A couple of weeks ago, Citi increased the signup bonus on the Prestige card to 75,000 Thank You points after $7,500 in spend, but only TPG had the 75k link, Citi’s regular site showed the old 40k offer, and that’s the one all other affiliates had too. TPG had an exclusive on it until today, August 3rd.

The 75,000 offer is now showing on Citi’s site. You can find it at the direct link above, or by googling ‘Citi Prestige,’ or by visiting and finding it among the other credit cards there.

You might need to use a cookie-free browser to see the offer. Incognito is an easy way to see it. Read our original post for full details and analysis on this offer.

One thing to keep in mind is that blogs and websites who are Citi affiliates don’t seem to have the 75k link yet. Presumably, they’ll get it tomorrow or sometime soon. If I were applying, I’d wait until they get the links so I can support a blogger who provides value to me. We don’t use credit card affiliate links here on Doctorofcredit.

Hat tip to reader yet another redditer

    I still have CSR. Can I procrastinate applying for this one for a month or two?

    BTW, when will my CSR AF post? I applied early Sept, prior fee was in Oct, IIRC. Will it be Oct again? Does it mean I’ll have until end of Oct to PC and have the fee refunded, is I so choose?

  2. sa13doc says:

    Can you do MS to complete $7500 spend requirement??

    • Chuck says:

      I don’t recall any specific concern with Citi, but as always, tread carefully.

      • NinjaX says:

        i would clarify that and say many have been shut down by citi already so everyone should be looking at the FT shutdown thread. people just have not been talking about it recently.

    • Jts says:

      I think Citi is MS-friendly in general. I usually get one or two fraud alerts that block my $1011.90 cvs transaction but once I clear those up it’s downhill from there.

  3. Daniel says:

    Does Citi match offers if you already applied?

  4. MontyFC says:

    If I apply online, is the annual fee reduced automatically if I am Citi priority? In branch offer is 50k/5k w/ $350 fee.

    Debating whether I should apply online for 75k offer and try to get the fee reduced, or apply in branch with reduced fee and then match to get 25k extra points.

  5. Avi says:

    What is it with these banks showing better offers in incognito instead of regular window?!! I am tired of this BS, first Amex and now Citi.

  6. P says:

    I al seeing 40k bonus when I get to the page via the direct link above. Am I doing anything wrong?

  7. SRT says:

    I have the Prestige since 3 years. Can I get another Prestige and still be eligible for the 75k bonus?

  8. Gina says:

    It’s been two years since I opened/closed a typ card. I have the premier open still so if I apply for the prestige and get approved, then I can close my premier card but will my 30K typ be okay because I’ll start earning points on the prestige or will I lose them? I’m assuming applying for premier isn’t an option since I already have one open?

    • Miles Hustler says:

      If you apply and get approved for the Prestige, you should NOT do anything to your Premier (downgrade/close.etc) until your points for the Prestige posts. If you combine your TYP between your accounts, and keep both accounts open, your existing points will be safe; if you close any account, the TYPs earned on that account will expire within 30-90days (you can call to ask the exact period, but won’t disappear right away).

  9. Karen Stafford says:

    We are trying to decide between getting my husband the Citi Prestige or the Citi AA Executive. We are not concerned with on-going points earning on either card since we are only enrolling at this point for the sign up bonus (we prefer to use our Chase Reserve card for most purchases). My husband is an authorized user on my Citi Prestige card. Does anyone know if that will exclude him from receiving the 75K bonus if he applies?

  10. Emily says:

    If you have Citi Priority do you have to apply in branch to get the reduced annual fee?

  11. Alex says:

    Hey,guys. I have credit length for one year and just opened Citi Account Package the end of June, No Citi Credit Card, do you think how hard if I wanna get this card?

    • Irshad says:

      In my opinion. Any premium cards will not be approved with thin credit history. They would want to see a good established credit before approving you. One exception is American express. They are the most easy to get approved. Try one of those first. Just my 2 cents

  12. BD says:

    I called a local branch around Los Angeles to see if they can do application with $350 AF for non priority or gold account member. The banker said yes, so I went to the branch to apply. I double-checked with him right after I arrived, and he said he had done many before. The banker submitted the application without even going through the terms and disclosures with me. When I knew he had submitted, I asked to see the terms and disclosures, and found that it was an application with $450 AF. I was very upset, and asked why it was not the $350 AF one. He said he did not know what’s the problem, and he had done one two weeks ago and there was no problem. I felt that I was tricked. He should know the right way to do it, but did not do it for me. or even if he did not know how to do it, he knew I wanted a $350 one (which I made it clear was why I took trouble to apply in branch instead of online), but went ahead to submit a $450 one while intentionally not go through terms/disclosures with me. Did he really try to trick me? What can I do to?

  13. Sat says:

    The first paragraph says after $3,000 spend, I think it needs to be corrected as $7,500 spend.

  14. DJ says:

    Anyone having luck being matched from the 50,000 offer? I asked twice by secure message but refused both times (same rep unfortunately).

  15. PJ says:

    I don’t see an expiration date on this offer, any ideas on how long Citi promotional offers usually go for? I am working on a few MSRs right now and would need to give this card my full attention to meet the MSR so I probably shouldn’t apply until next month to do that as MS hasn’t worked well for me in the past.

  16. MM Dallas says:

    DP for Cancel/PC Call.

    I had opened Citi Prestige last year when it was launched with 50k bonus TYP. this year my wife got the same card with 75k TYP. as mine was a duplicate card, I called the customer care to get the card canceled. I intended to PC it to Citi DoubleCash if they didn’t give me any retention offer. But they gave me two:

    1) In the next 6 months, for Every $1 of expenditure, I will get 1 additional TYP upto a max of 50,000 points
    2) For next 7 billing cycles, everytime I spend over $1500, I will get a statement credit of $50. That amounts to $350 of statement credit in next 7 months.

    I opted for 2nd offer. He said he will be sending me the offer details by email or by mail. and also will be sending me the metal card.

    • Dave says:

      Good DP, thanks. Don’t forget Citi’s 24 month rule on the TYP cards, and the clock restarts when you cancel. So it would be more efficient to keep this one open for another year and open a new one for bonus points before cancelling.

  17. Gus says:

    The Citi CC page no longer has 50k/75k signup bonus offers for Premier/Prestige. (No signup bonus at all.)

  18. Stephan says:

    I was able to apply and get approved with a link similar to the above one. That’s good…
    Now the bad, or maybe not bad?
    I already had a Prestige that I had applied for 9/30/2015. Since this offer seems to go away to ZERO I decided to wait until 10/1/2017 and apply. Counting days it’s more than 24 month and even just counting 9/15 to 10/17 its ok (in my eyes). So I applied at 10/1/17 12:11am EST and got instant approval with message stating that as of 9/30/2017!!!! my account was opened. I learned that they use CST for approvals!

    So now the BIG question is: did that screw up my 24 month??? ANYONE with experience? Not looking for speculation but somebody that had the same?
    I called application status line and was told without asking that I would get 75k points after spending 7.5k. Does that mean I will really get it? Or could they still deny?

    I mean, do they not attach that offer in the first place if I don’t qualify or do they attach it because I applied with it but still tell me I won’t get the bonus?

    Had I known they used CST I would have waited another hour…

    • Stephan says:

      Seems like I was wrong…
      Offer attached to new card and all well…
      Approved on 9/30/15 and based on Citi data on 9/30/17 (was 10/1 in EST but they are CST).
      That means they count 24 month aka 2 years in a way that actually makes sense.
      You can apply 9/30/15, 9/30/17, 9/30/17, etc. which is how most people would count 2 years.

      As always YMMV but for me it turned out that way.

    Direct link doesn’t mention the bonus points. Please update the link

  20. RichardParker says:

    Just tried the labeled “working link” at the top and got this error: “A system error has caused a delay in processing your application.” when I tried to go to the app page. Is it dead?

  21. Adam says:

    dangit, looks like the current Prestige 75k link is dead. just missed it eh? ;(

    anyone know of another zombie link by chance? or should I just app for some random offer link & have Citi try to match it?

  22. Alice says:

    Something to be aware of – when I received my prestige card, it said in tiny letters on the page the card was attached to that I was not eligible for the bonus because of a Citi Card I had opened or closed. I called and learned that the premier card I got 26 months ago had gotten a new card number at some point, perhaps because I had lost it, and they were saying that as a closing of a card. Make sure you read the sheet the card is attached to carefully!

    • Zheng Yuan says:

      thanks for reminding that. I have a similar situation. Changed a new citi prestige number due to lost card last year. Will see if my newly approved citi premier will treat it like a card close.

  23. Alice says:

    I am waiting to hear whether I will be eligible for the bonus on the prestige card.

  24. harvson3 says:

    DP: personal banker at full branch just showed me in-branch offer expires 10/14. (Large text on screen) App system currently down nationwide. @ sweet home Chicago, IL.

  25. CF Frost says:

    I applied in branch and my app went into pending. When my banker submitted, his screen asked for a security code, which took a full minute to hit my cell. By that time, my banker had already backed out and couldn’t return to the page. He said he never gets prompted for the security and to not worry – my app was in pending, which is true for all apps. Hope he’s right…

    Oh – and he gave me a printout of the offer – in the top right it says “Valid Through 10/07/2017.”

  26. Vk12 says:

    DP: Went into branch and banker was showing no welcome offer. He did show a screen saying updated signups bonus on 10/15, but it didn’t show what it was.

  27. Lowell says:

    I’ve missed out, I will go to the bank tomorrow. btw the TPG link seems doesn’t work anymore

  28. MXD says:

    Branch still works – just received bonus offer and had CSR print out document that states offer valid until 10/14.

  29. Brian C says:

    Looks like this is still available.

    Can anyone confirm they have applied and not had a problem using this zombie link?
