[Expired] Increased Citi Expedia Credit Card Offers (Up To 70,000 Points) – Last Day

Bonus back to 50k pts

Update 11/27/19: There is now a public link that will work, you’ll still need to log into your account before applying.

Update 11/25/19: Some people are actually able to apply now. Make sure you’re logged into your account, click ‘Expedia Rewards Credit Cards’ at the bottom of the page and the option to apply now should show up. Offer shows as being good until December 2nd, 2019. Hat tip to Wayne H. Can also use this link to search for VIP access hotels.

Update 11/25/19: Extreme Hotel Deals (awesome site) points out that the Expedia+ Voyager card will be offering a 70,000 point bonus on Black Friday.

Keep in mind Citi will usually match a higher bonus if it’s within 90 days of sign up.

Update 11/22/19: Old links stopped working, I’ve updated it with some new links.

The Offers

Direct link to offers: Voyager | No annual fee card

Expedia+ Voyager:

  • $95 annual fee
  • 50,000 Expedia+ points after $2,000 in purchases within 3 months
  • $100 annual statement credit can be used  airline incidentals on qualified airlines, Wi-Fi carriers, or for the Global Entry application fee (calendar year)

Expedia+

  • No annual fee
  • 20,000 Expedia+ points after $1,000 in purchases within 3 months

Our Verdict

Standard offer on the Voyager card is 25,000 points, but we’ve also seen 20,000 points + $100. Looks like points are worth a maximum of 0.7¢ towards hotels/flights (up to 1.4¢ for ‘VIP Hotels’). Keep in mind the 24 month language on these offers. This still works out to be about $350 in Expedia credit and most people should be eligible due to never having one of these cards before. I’ll be adding the Voyager offer to our list of the best credit card bonuses.

Hey, I’m another HI churner. Have you two applied for this card? I don’t use Expedia since I buy my flights with the Amex platinum or csp, but I’m LOL/24 so trying to expand my knowledge of what else is available.

I held off and good thing cuz that Chase card workaround link came along and was able to get the ink pref bypassing
5/24. I’ve never held an Expedia card though. Maybe try for the WF World Propel card over the phone. 40k pts plus $100 travel credit.

I wonder how many of us there are in HI. I went to OD/OM yesterday to find that someone had already beaten me to asking about the Visa gc promo lol, but they said they aren’t participating this time. Did you guys know HI Central has a card that earns 5x on everything for first 6 months?

K.M.

Hey what is OD/OM? Also is HI central the real estate company? I’m looking them up now but don’t see anything about the card you’re talking about.

Anyone know if airline incidental credit counts for gift cards or under $100 southwest flights?

I’ve used mine for $100 Delta cards the last two years with no problem. Haven’t tried other options.

Kool

Thanks Just got approved so you bought a $100 Delta gift card and it gave you the credit? Anyone else use anything different for the credit.

MZ

Hi, may I know how long after the purchase you got the reimbursement? I have purchased 2 $50 Delta GC for a week and haven’t seen any change in my account. Thanks a lot!

If you redeem your points for VIP Access hotels, your points are worth double (1.4 cents each) which is how I redeem mine. It’s a good option when you’re traveling somewhere that doesn’t have your preferred chain hotel.

Roberto

Greg, mind expanding a bit on your hotel redemptions? Stateside or overseas? High-end or budget? Do the big brands work or only smaller, boutique hotels? Thinking about going for this card solely for hotel redemptions but can’t find much info out there. Thank you!

Greg
Greg

The VIP Access hotels are generally 4 and 5 star boutique hotels, so they’re usually fairly nice. I’ve actually noticed that there is sometimes some crossover with the big chain brands. For example, a hotel will be a part of the Marriott Autograph Collection and also Expedia VIP Access. In that type of scenario, I’d book direct with Marriott because I value Marriott points and benefits more. Recently I was in Abu Dhabi and redeemed all my Expedia points at the Rosewood, which is a very nice luxury hotel in the VIP Access program. Since Rosewood doesn’t have a loyalty program (at least that I know of) it was a great use of points.

Ben

Can you confirm that every VIP hotel you’ve tried to book is redeemable at 1.4 cpp? I’ve seen some language defines that amount as available at “thousands of our VIP hotels” but doesn’t clearly denote that it is all of them.

Greg
Greg

In my experience it’s always hardcoded to show 1.4 cpp when you choose to apply your points to a VIP hotel.

Roberto
Roberto

Thanks very much, Greg. I picked up the card at 70k points for myself and P2. Will put the points to good use!

Anyone able to get the application page to load up? I’m only getting a white blank page!

I’ve been having the same issue since this afternoon.

Im not sure what the exact steps were, but I had the same problem, then went into my Expedia account and filled in my personal information (address and such) and then also pressed the “Join Expedia Reward” button. Then it started working. So you might try some of that.

Can’t apply as well, white screen on login. Tried firefox, chrome, Internet explorer with all ad-blocking turned off.

Try making sure you’re “enrolled” in your “My Account” page to Expedia rewards or whatever their loyalty program is called. That was the issue that wasn’t allowing my application to go through.

Approved at lol/24. 4 hard inquiries on TU. Last time I opened a cc was 5/19

FYI. Not working until you join expedia, fill in your profile, and then join Expedia rewards. Then works fine on any browser.

Hi I’m also lol/24 and want to apply for this card before Dec. 2 (I also currently have Citi Premier card). I have Amex cards should I combine this app with Amex Biz Gold 75kMR & Amex Green 45kMR apps? Or since I have Amex cards they will just do a soft pull since they already have my credit report on file so it’s ok to wait until next year to apply for the Amex charge cards & get the Expedia now? Thanks for your help!

Note that the statement credit is per calendar year, so I would apply for this soon to double dip. That credit also more than covers the AF, so there should be no issue keeping this longterm and worrying about the 24-month rule. The VIP Access hotels include a nice selection of affordable places, not just expensive ones, so I think this bonus is a great deal.

Triple dip yo.

Hmm.. I did not see the card number. I didn’t bother creating an online account since I already had one and expected it to show up there. I did get email with the last 4 digits.

Anyone Try buying a under $100 Southwest flight for the travel credit and get it?

Getting the card around now (mid-Nov) is the optimal time to triple dip $100 credits. First $100 has to be before Dec statement. Second $100 anytime between Dec 2019-2020 statement. Third $100 between Dec 2020-Jan 2021 statement. Assuming 2nd AF posts Dec statement, you have 37 days to cancel/product change, so that leaves a couple days to do that after third $100 credit posts on Jan 2021 statement.

Anyone know if an Alaska Gift Card triggers the $100 annual credit?

Whoever designed this card should be banished. Every piece of information you *actually* need from it, like… the card number and expiration date, is virtually impossible to read unless you tilt it the correct way in the light.

So $255 after annual fee.

Expedia points are 140 per dollar of credit, so 70k points=500 dollars of credit. I would not subtract the 95 annual fee because you can recoup that cost with the airlines credit of 100/calendar year.
