Dreaming of a Stress-Free Tropical Getaway? Citi Prestige Cardholders Get the 4th Night Free at All-Inclusive Resorts Like the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana

For example, I did a search for the top-rated all-inclusive Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in February and found almost the same price on Aspire Lifestyle (Citi’s travel agency) and Expedia.

Here’s how to get the 4th night free:

  • Make Sure You’re Getting the Best Deal – Before you begin booking your stay, research your options and compare prices.
  • Call the Citi Prestige Concierge – Call 877-288-2484 and they’ll connect you to the concierge who will take down your budget, travel dates, desired hotel, etc.
  • Book Your Stay – Citi will email you (usually within 24 hours) with hotel options and rates.  If you’re happy with the price make your reservation.
  • Earn the Credit – Pay with your Citi Prestige card at the end of your stay and you should receive a statement credit for the cost of your 4th night within 1 to 2 billing cycles.

There’s a Lot of Back and Forth Involved in Booking Your Citi Prestige 4th Night Free Hotel Stay, So Be Sure to Plan in Advance

How You Can Save Even More!

What’s great about getting the 4th night free is you can save even more by combining it with other deals!

Here are easy ways you can add on to your savings!

1.   Special Rates

Citi also has access to special rates including AARP, AAA, and military discounts.  So if you’re eligible, look into these prices when you do your research and ask for them when you call.

Keep in mind, anyone can join AARP for ~$16 and take advantage of their travel discounts.

You Can Apply AARP, AAA, and Military Rates and Still Get the 4th Night Free With Citi Prestige

For example, I found the same price for the Hilton Garden Inn West 35th Street in New York City on the Hyatt site.

Plus, you can ask Citi to add the AARP rate (anyone can join for ~$16!) to your reservation.

The AARP Rate Will Save You ~$108 at Hilton Garden Inn West 35th in New York City!

And you get the 4th night free with your Citi Prestige card!  So you’ll save a total of ~$215 on your stay (~$108 AARP rate + ~$107 4th night free)!

2.   Status Perks

Folks have also stacked the Citi Prestige card 4th night fee with status perks, like the Hyatt Diamond status suite upgrade.

So you can upgrade to a suite and still get a statement credit for the cost of your 4th night.

You Could Get 1 Night Free in a Suite at a Hotel Like the Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen

3.   Earn Hotel Points

If you’re staying a major hotel chain, you can add your account number to your reservation.  You’ll still earn hotel points, stay credits, and elite status perks..

If You Have Elite Status, You Should Still Be Able to Take Advantage of Benefits Like Free Breakfast

4.   Hotel Sales & Promotions

Some hotels have their own promotions which you can combine with the 4th night free.

For example, folks have successfully booked a hotel that was offering the 5th night free through Citi and got the 4th night free with their Citi Prestige card.

Note:  You’ll get the best deal if you try to arrange your stay so the most expensive night is your 4th night.  That’s because Citi Prestige will reimburse you for the actual cost of your 4th night, NOT the average cost of 4 nights.

Bottom Line

One of the many perks you get with the Citi Prestige card is the 4th night free on hotel stays booked through the Citi concierge.  In fact, I think this is 1 of the 10 best travel deals!

And you can combine Prestige’s 4th night free with special rates like AAA & AARP, status perks, hotel rewards, and hotel promotions for Big Savings!

I still prefer to use points for free hotel stays.  But when you want to save your points for another more expensive stay, this is a great way to save!  And Prestige’s 4th night free works well at non-chain hotels, especially pricey all-inclusive resorts.

Let me know in the comments if you come up with other ways to get the most out of the Citi Prestige 4th night free benefit!

  1. Hi Daraius, The hotel I want to stay at in Koh Samui doesn’t show on their website. IIs it still possible to book the hotel with them to be eligible for the 4th night free?

  2. I required the hotel list, they said they will email me within 24 hours, but they never email.

  3. CWT shows double the price for same hotel room that is available on hotel’s web site for much less.. Even after 4th night free, booking directly on hotel site is cheaper..

  4. Last month I booked a hotel with a spa and meals rate package. It was $100 more than the daily rate but gave me $200 in food and spa credits, which I easily used. This way, my 4th night free actually reimbursed me for meals and spa costs in addition to the room.

  5. Do you and your significant other have to wear all white when checking into these hotels to get the 4th night free benefit, or is the couple in the picture just a couple of weirdos?

  6. I tried this for the first time for a 5 night stay we had in NYC.
    I found a AAA rate online for $225 which would make sense for us at less than $1025 for 5 nights.
    I called and was told they would contact me within 24 hours. The next evening, I received their email.
    The AAA rate for the hotel had gone up to $250 for the first four nights and $285 for the 5th night for a total of over $1200.
    Since the rate was now $125 plus tax higher, I told them no thanks because the rate was higher.

    Their response was:
    “I hope you are having a terrific week so far!

    Unfortunately all prices and availability are subject to change until purchased. Please let us know if you would like any further assistance inn your travel and we will be more than happy to assist you.

    Thank you for choosing Citi Prestige Concierge and have a lovely evening!”

    I’m not loving this benefit so far and I’m keeping the award stay we have booked.

  7. I am living in Hong Kong and have citi prestige card applied in HK’s citibank. I just asked for booking a hotel in China, Citi Prestige Concierge quoted RMB1258 plus 15% tax. However the hotel called me directly by a mistake, they quoted RMB908 included tax. Even I just need to pay 3 nights to get 4 nights stay, it still higher than what I direct book from hotel. Then I cancelled the book by Citi prestige, and directly book to hotel. I think, it is just a gimmick re 4th night free

  8. @Cathy – You have to book through the Citi Prestige Concierge. If you can’t find anything in Koh Samui on the website, it’s still a good idea to call and ask.

    @Zachary – Unfortunately, sometimes it takes longer than 24 hours. You may want to follow up with them.

    @HS – Most hotels are the same price. But there are a few where it may be cheaper to book directly through the hotel. So it’s important to compare.

    @Richard – Excellent!

    @Anthony – Haha! White attire optional 😉

    @Joeheg – Yes, it does have its drawbacks. Sorry it didn’t work out for you!

  9. Can I use this perk for cash & point Amex SPG stay?
    Get a possible reimbursement for the 4th night stay?

  10. Can I use citiprestige card to book a Starwood for 4 nights and get 4th free night through Starwood and citi prestige?
