Is It Worth Paying Citi Prestige’s $450 Annual Fee After the 1st Year?

Million Mile Secrets reader Fran B emailed:

Is the Citi Prestige card worth keeping after the first year?  The 50,000 ThankYou point sign-up bonus was great, but the $450 annual fee is a lot!  If I keep the card, will I get the $250 statement credit for airline fees (like airfare and baggage fees) every year I’m a cardholder?

Great question, Fran B!

In short, yes, it could be worth keeping your Citi Prestige card after the first year if you’re able to use its most valuable perks.

Because the annual $250 statement credit for airline fees (that you’ll get each year you’re a cardholder), Priority Pass and American Airlines Admirals Club lounge access, and the 4th night free perk, can more than offset the $450 annual fee!

We don’t earn a commission on this card, but we’ll always tell you the best deals!
