It has been around for more than six months. We have been told that the higher bonus will end soon, so there is not much time left to take advantage of it.

The bonus ThankYou points will be given when you spend $4,000 in the first three months on the premier card. It is an excellent offer on a great card.

The Offer & Key Card Details

Card Offer and Details
Citi Premier Card

The earnings for spend were very good in the mini review. There are excellent bonus categories. Points can be used to purchase tickets to certain airlines. It's a good idea to pair this card with Citi Double Cash and Citi rewards+. The travel card doesn't offer any travel protections.

There is a card type called Mastercard World Elite.

The earning rate is 3X grocery, 3X dining, and 3X gas stations.

The $100 annual hotel savings benefit is noteworthy.

The Citi ThankYou rewards complete guide is also available.

Quick Thoughts

The welcome offer on the Citi premier card has never been higher. It is a great bonus for a currency that has become more well-rounded in the past year with the addition of a couple of hotel transfer partners.

One of the best features of the Citi premier card is that it offers 3x ThankYou points for several categories where you will organically spend a significant chunk of your monthly expenditure.

  • Groceries
  • Dining
  • Gas stations
  • Flights, hotels, travel agencies

You would end up with 92,000 ThankYou points if you spent all your money at 3x. You could get 6 round trip economy flights to Hawaii booked on United after transferring points to Turkish Miles & Smiles, 184,000 Choice Privileges points, and 6 nights in a one bedroom Vacasa property.

The 3x grocery store category is uncapped, which is one of the great features of the premier card. The Amex Gold card has a limit on the number of Membership rewards points that can be earned. For people who can maximize their spend at grocery stores, earning a potentially unlimited number of ThankYou points makes it a wonderful additional option.

When applying for this card, Citi has a rule for 24 months.

You have to wait at least 24 months after you receive a new cardmember bonus or close your ThankYou card account to get bonus on any ThankYou card. Applies to preferred, premier, prestige, and rewards+

It is tempting to apply for this card since my wife is eligible. She won't drop below 5/24 for another year if she applies for the Citi premier card. What should I do?
