Citi Prestige credit card offer has expired

Next year the Citi Prestige credit card (offer has expired) is getting an upgrade and cardholders will start earning 5 points per dollar when they book flights and when they eat out, representing a two-point increase from what they get now. When booking trips with cruise lines cardholders will also earn triple points.

Citi is currently offering a $250 annual air travel credit and that is getting an upgrade too. In 2019, cardholders will get a general $250 credit for travel purchases, so they can use it for a wider range of travel-related purchases.

People who don’t have insurance on their cellphone might be happy to know that Citi is planning on adding protection for cellphone damage and theft in May of next year. The coverage amount and other details are still pending.

The other good news is that people can once again start applying for the Citi Prestige credit card in January.

Some benefits are changing

That said some other perks are reportedly changing. Right now cardholders get the fourth night free for four days stays and there is no limit on how often they can take advantage of this perk, but that is ending. In the fall of next year, cardholders will only be able to get the fourth night free twice a year. This limit holds true for both the cardholder and anyone that is an authorized user on the card.

Also the 25% bonus they currently offer to cardholders when booking flights through their portal is ending.

That said some things are staying the same including benefits like Global Entry/TSA PreCheck application fee credit, and trip delay insurance.

No more double points on entertainment

Cardholders currently earn double points when they are having fun, but that is ending too. Cardholders will earn one point per dollar on entertainment spends.

Right now the annual fee for the Citi Prestige credit card is $450, but it will be going up next year. Cardholders at that point will start paying $495 a year for this card.

For more information on the Citi Prestige credit card people can visit the Citi website in January.
