Since early August, the Citi Premier Card has been offering a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points after you spend $4,000 in the first three months. This was a step up from the previous bonus of 50,000 points, and great news considering this card had waived a sign-up bonus altogether for much of last year.
Now, however, that elevated 60,000-point offer has an end date: Oct. 11, 2018. So if you want to earn this bonus, this is your last day to do so.
Based on our valuations, 60,000 Citi ThankYou points are worth $1,020. You can transfer Citi points to 14 airline programs, including Etihad Guest, Flying Blue, JetBlue and Virgin Atlantic, to book award flights. You can also book travel directly through Citi, in which case your points are worth 1.25 cents apiece. Check out this post for ideas on how to redeem 60,000 Citi points.
The ThankYou Premier has a $95 annual fee that’s waived for the first 12 months. It’s an especially good pick for gas purchases, as it earns 3x points on this spending. It also earns 3x points on other travel purchases, including everything from airfare and hotels to public transportation and parking charges. The card earns 2x points on dining and entertainment, and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases.
Other benefits include price protection courtesy of Citi’s Price Rewind program and various travel protections including baggage delay protection and trip cancellation and interruption insurance.
We don’t know what bonus will replace the current elevated offer when it ends on Oct. 11, so act now if you’ve been eyeing the Citi Thank You Premier. Remember, the annual fee is waived for the first 12 months, so you can test-drive the card before you have to pony up the $95 fee.
