The Citi Premier Card now has the highest bonus ever, 80k points!
Details on Citi Premier 80k Offer
Spend $4000 in the first three months and get 80,000 Citi ThankYou points. The card has an annual fee of $95.
The bonus points are worth at least $800 in travel or gift cards through the Citi ThankYou portal. You can also transfer the points to airline partners like Air France, Avianca and JetBlue. See the complete list of transfer partners here.
The card earns 3X points at restaurants, supermarkets, gas stations, air travel and hotels. It has a $100 hotel credit every calendar year for a hotel stay of $500 or more booked through the portal. The Citi Premier Card has no foreign transaction fees.
Citi application rules: You cannot get the bonus if you’ve received the bonus on the Citi Rewards+, Citi ThankYou Preferred, Citi Prestige or Citi Premier in the past 24 months. You are also ineligible for the bonus if you’ve closed any of those cards within the past 24 months. Citi will only approve one card every 8 days or two cards every 65 days.
My husband and I both got Citi Premier cards a few years ago when the bonus was 60k. We combined our points and used them to book an all-inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta.
Who Should Consider Applying
If you don’t already have the Chase Sapphire Preferred card (currently 100k bonus), I recommend that card first. Chase Ultimate Rewards points have better transfer partners. See my post here.
But if you’ve already got that card, or you can’t apply for any more Chase cards at the moment, the Citi Premier is a great way to get more free travel.
