It’s nearly the end of 2016 and one of the benefits of the Citi Prestige card is the fact that it comes with a $250 travel credit. Like the Chase Sapphire Reserve $300 travel credit, charges must POST to your December 2016 statement to be eligible.
That means if your statement closes on December 10th and you make a purchase on December 12th it will not count towards your 2016 travel credit (instead it’ll count towards your 2017 travel credit). You can change your statement closing date with Citi to try and give yourself more time, but I wouldn’t rely on this working.
I’d recommend using this credit sooner rather than later, if you’re interested to know what has triggered the credit in the past this post will help you. If you have any questions about this benefit, please ask us in the comments as I want to try and make sure all readers are using these benefits to the fullest!
