Earlier this month, Citi increased the sign-up bonus for the Citi Prestige card.
And now they’ve made it a lot easier to earn the 50,000 Citi ThankYou point sign-up bonus with the Citi ThankYou Premier card!
With the previous offer it took over 1 year to earn the full sign-up bonus. But now you can earn it by spending $3,000 on purchases within 3 months of opening your account!
Now You Don’t Have to Wait Over 1 Year to Earn the 50,000 Citi ThankYou Points With the Citi ThankYou Premier Card
Find out how you can use the sign-up bonus to get Big Travel such as $625 for airfare and hotels through the ThankYou Travel Center. Or for flights to Hawaii and Europe by transferring to airline partners.
And I’ll tell you about the other changes to the Citi ThankYou Premier card!
Via MileValue, the Citi Prestige card now has an increased sign-up bonus!
You can earn 50,000 ThankYou points when you spend $3,000 on purchases within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.
That’s 20,000 More Points Than the Previous Sign-Up Bonus!
I’ll explain how you can book an $800 flight with NO blackout dates. Or transfer the points for award flights to Hawaii, Europe, and more!
American Express will give you a 25% bonus when you transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Virgin Atlantic.

I’ll show you how to get the bonus points!
1. Buy $250+ in Visa Gift Cards Get $20 Back (Free Money!)
Frequent Miler writes, you can make money and earn points on Visa gift cards at Staples (in-store only) next week! Buy $250 or more in Visa Gift cards and you’ll get a $20 rebate (1 per household)! That’s more than enough to cover the ~$7 in activation fees per card.
This Deal Is Good From March 15, 2015, (Sunday) to March 21, 2015!
However, Staples gift cards tend to sell out quickly!
Which cards will give you the most points at Staples?
- AMEX SimplyCash – 5% cash back at US office supply stores
- Chase Ink Bold (no longer available) – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% back) at office supply stores
- Chase Ink Cash – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% back) at office supply stores
- Chase Ink Plus – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% back) at office supply stores
So if you buy 2 $200 Visa gift cards, you’d pay ~$14 in fees. But you’d get back a $20 rebate, which gives you a profit of ~$6 ($20 rebate – ~$14 in fees).
Plus you’d earn ~$21 in cash back (~$414 in gift cards and fees X 5% cash back) or ~2,070 Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
You can then load the Visa gift cards to your AMEX Serve or Bluebird account. Or use the cards at most places where Visa is accepted.
Staples sells Visa gift cards in several different denominations, so do the math to see which combination works best for you!
Note: This is a $20 rebate, so you’ll have to fill out forms and wait for Staples to mail your $20 gift card.
2. Get an Easy 1,000 Hilton Points!
Virgin America is a West Coast based airline that flies to several cities in the United States and a few cities in Mexico. Their flights are concentrated along the West Coast, and from their hub cities (San Francisco and Los Angeles) to the East Coast.
A lot of people like flying Virgin America since they’ve marketed themselves as a very “hip” brand! But most of us here care more about Virgin America points and what you can do with them.
You Can Fly Virgin America in the US and Mexico, or Use Points on Partner Airlines Such as Hawaiian Airlines
