Citi Premier 65K/70K in-branch offer (possible match)

16

Citi is currently running increased in-branch offers for the Citi Premier card. While the current online offer is for 60K ThankYou points after spending $4K in the first 3 months, the standard offer available in-branch is good for 65K points with the same spending requirement. Doctor of Credit also reports that there is now a 70K offer for Citigold customers.

Possible match

Citi is generally good about matching if you see a higher offer after applying. If you have applied online recently, it’s definitely worth reaching out to Citi via message to ask if they can match you to the higher in-branch offer (likely the 65K offer for most readers, but if you have Citigold status, it is obviously worth asking to be matched to the 70K offer). If you have a branch nearby, you could alternatively go to apply in-person if banks are open in your area.

Remember that to get the bonus on any ThankYou card, you must wait 24 months after receiving a new cardmember bonus or closing any ThankYou card account. This applies to the Citi Preferred, Premier, Prestige, and Rewards+ cards.

Hey guys are you 100% confident that a Rewards+ bonus in past 24 months prevents you from earning a Premier sign up bonus? I’m currently debating how to handle my Prestige which has AF due in a couple weeks. If I’m ineligible for a Premier bonus due to Rewards+ from last year I may just accept a downgrade from Prestige to Premier and forego the SUB.

It’s always been very easy to get Citi cards for me, 6+ or so last year alone, but I’ve applied twice now for the Premier and been instantly denied. High income, high credit score, recently downgraded existing Premier card. I’ve never had a problem getting a Citi card before, maybe they are restricting after the grAAvy train fiasco?

Have done it via chat before, however might take more than one try, some reps are less knowledgeable than others.
