Citi, a Credit-Land.com advertising partner, has recently increased the welcome bonus on one of its flagship cards - the Citi Premier® Card
For a limited time, new cardholders of the Citi Premier Card can earn 80,000 bonus points after spending $4,000 in purchases within the first three months of account opening. The previous bonus offer was 60,000 points. An important note, though - if you received a bonus offer for any of the other Citi cards in the ThankYou Points family, or if you closed any of those accounts in the past 24 months, you won't qualify for this $80K bonus offer.
The 80,000 points are redeemable for $800 in gift cards when redeemed at thankyou.com. Or you can explore other options available on the portal, including points transfer to participating loyalty programs. Thus, American Airlines frequent flyers will be able to convert points into AAdvantage miles at a 1:1 transfer ratio as Citi has temporarily added American Airlines AAdvantage as a ThankYou transfer partner.
Based on the rewards program, the Citi Premier® Card is a good option for frequent travelers. The card earns 3 points per dollar spent on air travel, hotels, gas stations, and at restaurants. Other purchases earn a standard 1 point per $1. Plus, cardholders can get $100 off a hotel stay of $500 or more (excluding taxes and fees) once a calendar year. To qualify, bookings should be made through thankyou.com. This benefit can offset the card's $95 dollar annual fee.
