Citi Prestige: Weird but valuable benefits

In light of the news that Citi has reduced many of the Prestige card’s travel & purchase protections, I expect that readers are wondering whether to dump their Prestige card when the next annual fee is due.  I’m wondering the same.  First, though, it makes sense to review the Prestige card’s benefits.  Specifically, lets look at the benefits that are not readily available with other ultra-premium cards.  I bet that you’ll be surprised by a…

Prestige 50K offer hanging on by a thread. Still possible to get up to $1300 in flights for $450.

Prestige 50K Offer

A couple of weeks ago I reported that the writing was on the wall for two great Citibank signup offers: the Citi Prestige 50K offer and the Citi AT&T Access More free phone offer (See: Two great Citi offers may soon be gone. What to do?).  I was right about the AT&T offer.  The last known link to that offer disappeared last week (congrats to those who got in on it before it disappeared!).  The…

Two great Citi offers may soon be gone. What to do?

Great Citi offers: 50K or free phone

Citi’s AT&T Access More card and its free phone offer is still alive… barely.  For the last few months, public links to sign up for the card kept disappearing.  Each time one would go away, a different working link was found. Now, all that is left is a link uncovered by US Credit Card Guide.  This link most likely won’t last long.  And, when this one goes away, I have little hope of a new…

Round trip to Australia starting at 50,000 points

When I widened my search to include American Airlines hubs (Charlotte, Dallas, Philadelphia, etc.),…

You DO have to pay with your Prestige card for 4th Night Free. Here’s why I’m surprised.

UPDATE 6/26/2015 3PM EST: Please see my new results here: You DON’T have to pay with your Prestige card for 4th Night Free. Among its many other perks, the Citi Prestige card has an interesting one: book a four night hotel stay and get the last night free.  The way it works is that a cardholder must call the Citi Concierge service to book their four night (or longer) stay.  At the end of the…

Tying loose ends: Prestige 4th night, 5X everywhere, retrieving points, Necker Island

Necker Island Turtle

Today I have a grab bag of follow-ups from previous posts… Citi Prestige 4th Night Fee Hotel Benefit One nice perk of the Citi Prestige card is the ability to book a four night hotel stay, pretty much anywhere, and get the fourth night free.  I wrote about my experience in booking such a stay back in January (See: Using the Citi Prestige 4th night free benefit).  I completed the stay on March 3rd and…
