Update 01/15/18: Old link has expired. will update if we find a new working link.
Update: Looks like affiliate links are no longer showing the 50,000 point bonus, but non affiliate links are still showing 50,000 points. There is still a chance this bonus will be replaced/changed shortly but for now it’s still working fine.
According to OMaaT this offer is due to ‘change’ on August 22nd. It isn’t clear how the offer will change but given that 50,000 is the highest bonus we’ve seen I imagine we will see a bonus reduction. It might also be that only the affiliate link offer will change and it will still be possible to get 50,000 points via other links. It’s also entirely possible that the bonus will increase.

- Card earns at the following rates:
- 3x on travel

- Bonus ThankYou Points are not available if you have had a ThankYou Preferred, ThankYou Premier or Citi Prestige card opened or closed in the past 24 months
This offer was spotted in branch last week, and now it’s publicly available online. A lot of people won’t be eligible for this card due to the 24 month language, and if you’ve recently applied for another Citi card be sure you aren’t bumping into Citi’s application rules either.
There was once a 60k offer publicly available, but that offer is uncommon. It still might be worth waiting to see what changes Citi possibly make to the Prestige card before going for this bonus, though that runs the risk of missing out on this since we don’t know how long it’ll last (in branch offer shows an expiry of 9/30, so I imagine it will be similar but no guarantee). Update: Prestige is coming out with a 75,000 points bonus on July 23.
As always make sure you read these things everybody should know about Citi credit cards before applying. We’ll add this to our list of the best credit card sign up bonuses.
