A few days ago, an increased offer came out for the Citi ThankYou Premier card, awarding 60,000 ThankYou points after spending $4,000 in the first three months. That’s an excellent offer on this card, though keep in mind it is not available to you if you have opened or closed a ThankYou Preferred, ThankYou Premier, or Citi Prestige card within the past 24 months.
- Earn 60,000 bonus ThankYou points after you spend $4,000 in purchases within the first 3 months with the Citi ThankYou Premier card

Key Card Details
- Earn 3X travel, including gas stations
- Earn 2X dining and entertainment
- Earn 1X everywhere else
- $95 annual fee is waived the first year
- With this card, ThankYou points become worth 1.25 cents each when used towards travel (or transfer to airline partners 1:1)
This is an excellent offer as the points are worth at least $750 when used towards travel, but they can be significantly more valuable when transferred to partners. Citi transfer partners don’t get as much attention as Chase transfer partners or Amex transfer partners, but they can certainly be quite valuable. There are a number of common partners (like Singapore, Virgin Atlantic, and Air France / KLM) where you could combine forces between your transferable currencies for a valuable award. Citi also has some unique partners like Avianca LifeMiles that have some excellent sweet spots (See: Avianca LifeMiles’ awesome mixed-cabin award pricing. First Class for less.).
Unfortunately, those who have opened or closed some of the other popular ThankYou points cards (ThankYou Preferred, Citi Prestige, or this ThankYou Premier card) within the past 24 months are not eligible to receive the signup offer on this card. However, if you have had one of those cards for more than 24 months and you are considering closing that account, it may make sense to apply for this card first. Once this new opening resets your 24-month clock, go ahead and close the card you no longer need. While the Prestige card did unveil a 75,000 point signup bonus for a while, that offer required $7,500 in spend and there is no indication when it may return. Most people would probably be better off starting out with this card and its bonus categories, perhaps upgrading to the Prestige down the road if you prefer its benefits. Those who would heavily use the Citi Prestige 4th Night Free might pass on this card in favor of the Prestige.
If you have recently applied for this card under a different offer, be sure to send a secure message to Citi asking them to match — they are usually good about that if you have opened the card within the past 90 days.
