Citi Prestige Signup Bonus Changing Next Tuesday
Via Onemileatatime, next Tuesday, July 19, the signup bonus is changing on the Citi Prestige card.
- The current Prestige offer is to get 50,000 ThankYou points after spending $3,000 within three months. $450 annual fee, NOT waived the first year. You do get a $250 airline credit each calendar year.
We don’t know if it will go up or down, but it appears more likely that it will go down. We’ve seen the Premier signup bonus go away completely; it’s possible Citi will take a break from offering a bonus on the Prestige, or else they’ll lower the bonus.
It’s also possible that there will be some other change which is somehow affecting the signup bonus.
Again, this is all speculation at this time. The only concrete thing to keep in mind is that as of Tuesday, July 19, the bonus will be different, and you might want to jump on this now if you had it on your short-list.
Personally, my plan was to hold off on the card until November with the hopes of scoring a triple-dip on the airline credit, but I’m considering changing plans and applying before Tuesday. We’ll see…maybe I’ll risk it and wait it out.
