Citi is launching the new Citi Rewards+℠ Card this month offering double points when pulling up to the gas station or shopping for groceries, while all other purchases offer one point per dollar spent. That said this card also comes along with an additional benefit – reward earnings are rounded up to the nearest 10 points. What does this feature mean for cardholders? They earn more points, for instance when they buy a cup a tea or a soda for $2 they get 10 ThankYou reward points.
Cardholders also get 10% points back on the first 100,000 points they rack up during the year. The Citi Rewards+℠ Card will be available starting January 10th. “We’re excited to introduce a new card that truly turns everyday purchases into something bigger,” said Chris Fred, Head of Proprietary Products, Citi Cards. “The unique and simple rewards structure is a game changer in rewarding customers for day-to-day purchases with its exclusive points round up and points back offering.”
