What’s the Deal?
Link: Citi ThankYou Premier – 60,000 Point Offer
With the improved offer for the Citi ThankYou Premier, you’ll earn 60,000 Citi ThankYou points after you spend $3,500 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account.
You’ll also get:
- 3 Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent on travel (ex. airfare, gas stations, taxis, tolls)
- 2 Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent on dining and entertainment (amusement parks, sporting events, movies)
- No foreign transaction fees
The $95 annual fee is waived for the 1st year.
This is a great deal because 60,000 Citi ThankYou points are worth:
- $600 in gift cards to a variety of retailers and restaurants (1 cent per point)
- $750 towards airfare, hotels, cruises, and car rentals when you book through the Citi ThankYou Travel Center (1.25 cents per point)
- Potentially much more when transferred to airline and hotel partners like Singapore Airlines, Flying Blue, or Hilton.

Or book flights on other airlines at a rate of 1.33 cents per point through July 23, 2017.
What If You Just Received the Lower Offer?
If you’ve recently applied for the lower 50,000 point offer on the Citi ThankYou Premier, it’s worth calling Citi to see if they’ll match the higher bonus.
Emily’s friend called this morning and was bumped to the 60,000 point offer. She’d applied for the card in July, but hasn’t received the sign-up bonus yet.
It can’t hurt to try!
