Citi is poised to rock our wallets again (Points transferable to airlines!)

UPDATE 9/23/19: I’ve confirmed that points from Double Cash are transferable to airlines when paired with Premier or Prestige! UPDATE 9/22/19: 1 to 1 transfers are real! At the time of this writing, the Citi website shows the ability to convert to points at a rate of 100 pennies ($1) to 100 ThankYou points.  This seems to have gone live a day earlier than intended and so, clicking on “Convert to Points” returns an error,…

Citi ThankYou Rewards Complete Guide

Now that the Citi Double Cash card doubles as a 2X everywhere ThankYou Rewards card (see what I did there?) and the Rewards+ card rebates award redemptions, and one of Citi’s unique transfer partners (Turkish) offers incredible awards (7.5K to Hawaii!), I realized that it was high time to revisit this guide.  ThankYou Rewards may now be the most rewarding of all transferable points programs for credit card spend.  Chase and Amex still have Citi…

Citi destroys most card benefits in September

Earlier today, we reported that Citi is dropping Price Rewind from its cards on September 22, 2019. What we didn’t realize at the time was that this is just part of a wide decimation of benefits coming to almost all of Citi’s cards (including the Prestige). These changes are so sweeping that I have to think Citi has something up their sleeve in terms of updating / refreshing / changing benefits. If these benefit changes are…

How much spend justifies that 25% ThankYou bonus?

Citi is out with what looks like an interesting targeted offer: bundle select Citi credit cards with a Citi Priority Banking Package and get a 25% bonus on ThankYou points or cash back earned on your credit card each billing period through 1/31/21. Note that this offer isn’t available to everyone (Greg tried to call and request the deal, but was told that it was not targeted to his account). That said, we’ve heard from…

Uber cash: get 5% off & use credit card travel credits

Uber recently came out with a deal to save up to 5% when you pre-load your Uber account with Uber Cash. That’s not an amazing deal since we see fairly regular promos for discounted Uber gift cards, but it’s a better deal than paying full price (as long as you make sure you choose to pay with your Uber Cash when requesting a ride – see below for more on that). The good news is that Greg confirmed that…

New Citi application rule might be a net win

Last Friday, Doctor of Credit reported what looks like a pretty positive change in application terms on many Citi cards. Specifically, Citi ThankYou cards have received a slight wording change in the terms surrounding the Citi 24-month clock that may not make it possible to open more than one ThankYou card at a time. Note that we will need more datapoints to know how the new wording is being applied, so YMMV for the time being. The…

Earn up to 100x w/ new Citi Rewards+ card. No, really. Ok, maybe not?

Citi has announced a new credit card that nearly made me spit out my second cup of coffee because it seems like it would be awfully hard to sustain as it is being marketed. I find this particularly ….interesting…in light of the recent reports about banks tightening up on rewards. Citi is launching a new card that, among other things, will round up rewards on your purchases to the nearest 10 ThankYou points. That means…

Citi Premier 60K offer still available

It was reported by many outlets that the Citi ThankYou Premier 60K points intro offer was ending yesterday. While the affiliate offer for that card ended yesterday, it’s worth noting that you can still get a 60K offer on this card. There’s no telling how long the llink will continue working, but if you’re interested and thought you missed your chance, it is not dead yet. The Offer Key Card Details Quick Thoughts This offer continues to…
