Update: Beginning July 23, 2017, the 4th night free perk will refund the average cost of a 4-night stay, NOT including taxes.

One Mile at a Time reports you can now book your hotel stay directly with Citi Travel Concierge instead of dealing with a 3rd-party service. Or waiting for a reply via email or phone.
This perk is 1 of the best deals in travel!
I’ll share the details!
What’s Going On?
Some folks didn’t like the process of booking their hotel stays through the Citi Travel Concierge. Previously, Citi would connect you to a 3rd-party service who’d take down your information and call or email you back within a day or two.
But now, when you call to book, there’s no more waiting. Perfect if you’re impatient like I am (although meditation helps a lot!).
Booking directly cuts out phone transfers, long holds, and having to wait for an email reply or phone call to book your room.
So you can take advantage of this perk – the 4th night free on paid hotel stays – even faster than before. That saves you time and money!
Perfect for a last-minute getaway, perhaps to 1 of our country’s beautiful National Parks!
About Citi Prestige
Link: Citi Prestige
The Citi Prestige has an excellent sign-up bonus of 50,000 Citi ThankYou points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account, worth $800 toward flights on American Airlines or 1 of its codeshare partners for international travel. (EXPIRED.)
And it can be at any hotel that can be booked by their travel agency, Carlson Wagonlit. This includes most chain hotels and lots of boutique hotels in places all over the world!
There’s NO limit to the number of times you can use this benefit. And you’ll receive points, stay credits, and elite status perks at the hotel, just as you would if you booked directly!
The annual fee is $450 (not waived the 1st year), but the benefits can far outweigh the annual fee. That’s why thrifty folks like me don’t mind paying it!
Citi has improved the hotel booking process for folks with the Citi Prestige.
Now, you book directly with Citi Travel Concierge instead of a 3rd-party service. That saves you time and makes it easier to enjoy the 4th night free on paid hotel stays, 1 of the best deals in travel.
I’m always glad to see positive improvements, especially to a card with so many other great features!
