Exactly two weeks ago, I declared “5X everywhere dies again.” There had been a secret application link for the Citi ThankYou Preferred card that offered 5 points per dollar at drugstores, grocery stores, and gas stations for 12 months, but the application link had died.
Fortunately, the Miles Professor has found a great alternative. At a Citibank branch, she found an offer for a Citi ThankYou card with the following benefits (quoted from her post):
- 15,000 bonus ThankYou points after you spend $1,000 in your first 3 months
- 5 ThankYou points for every $1 spent at drugstores, supermarkets and gas stations for 12 months
- The card has no annual fee. Ever.
It looks like this card is functionally equivalent to the ThankYou Preferred card, but has dropped the “Preferred” from its name. So, if you have a Citibank branch nearby it may be worth a visit!
