[Targeted] Citi Spending Bonuses: Up To $25/2,500 Miles/Points Back Through September 30th, 2019

Citi has started sending out targeted spending bonuses through September 30th, 2019. Offers must be activated and they have been sent out snail mail (not sure if e-mail offers have also gone out). It looks like offers haven’t gone out on most cards yet, but here are some of the offers we’ve seen.

American Airlines Personal

  • Earn 1,000 American Airline miles each month you spend $300 on purchases from July 1st until September 30th, 2019 (3,000 maximum)

American Airlines Business

  • Use your card to earn 5 American Airline miles per $1 spent, up to 2,500 miles, through 09/30/2019 on eligible purchases¹ you make at: Computer & Electronics Stores

Best Buy

  • Use your card to earn 5% cash back on all hotel and entertainment purchases, up to $25, through 09/30/19 hat tip to Kate M

Citi Simplicity

  • Use your card to earn 5% cash back on all online purchases, up to $25, through 09/30/19.

Citi ThankYou Preferred

  • Use your card to earn 5 ThankYou Points per $1 spent, up to 2,500 points, through 09/30/2019 on eligible purchases you make at: Grocery stores, gas stations, drugstores, mass transit & commuter transportation vendors. Hat tip to reader YAR

Our Verdict

Best deals are the ones available on grocery, gas and drugstores. Unfortunately the low spending cap means it’s not as useful as it would otherwise be.

I received it on my Thank you Preferred: “10 Thank You Points per $1 spent, up to 2,500 points. Shopping, Groceries, Gas, Travel and more. Excludes dining and entertainment purchases earning double points.”
As far as I understand, it means 10 points for everything (not just shopping, groceries, gas and travel) except for dining and entertainment.
Any thoughts?

Yea, i’m not sure either…. I’m assuming everything is 10X besides dining and etnertainment.

I didn’t receive any offer in my Dividend or Diamond, again. I guess that’s because I didn’t put much spend on my Citi cards.

My wife and I only got the offers on cards we almost never use.

Received, activated for Expedia credit card. Reminded me that I even have an Expedia card…

Why would you ever open that card? To waste a 5/24 slot… ugh.

George

If they forgot they had it, they probably opened it over 2 years ago. Whether they didn’t need the slots or didn’t know they needed the slots, it’s perfectly excusable.

Nothing on my Preferred card.

Ditto. These categories are vague though, and I can’t find any clarification.

Cindy

got same offer and equally confused here. Am I correct to assume it’s 10x on any purchase (except gas and groceries)?
