October 8, 2011: Post edited to reflect that 33% bonus on airline redemption applies to cash and points redemption as well.glu800 (Thanks!!) has alerted us to a new Citi Thank You Premier card which offers 50,000 Thank You points after spending $2,500 within 3 months, and with the 1st year annual fee waived!
This is a MUCH better offer than the one which Emily applied for in August and which I blogged about a few days ago, because the annual fee is waived in this offer. 50,000 Thank You points gets you $665 towards travel expenses since you can redeem 1 Thank You point for 1.33 cents worth of travel ( a 33% bonus over the regular redemption level of 1 Thank You point = 1 cent).
- $665 if you redeem Thank You points for air travel
- $500 if you redeem Thank You points for gift cards (including hotels)
This card is great for families because you can use your Thank You points to purchase a ticket that may not be available with miles.
For example, you manage to redeem United miles for 2 tickets on United Airlines from Washington to Chicago, but are unable to find award seats on that flight for your 2 children.
Well, you can redeem your Thank You points to purchase tickets on the same flight on which you’ve redeemed your United miles!
This is also a great card for domestic US travel, because you could get 2 to 3 tickets for $665 for travel within the US.Read my earlier review for a rundown of the benefits of the Citi Thank You card.
This is a much better way to earn 50,000 Thank You points than the Citi Thank You Preferred card which requires you to spend $10,000 to get 50,000 Thank You points.
You also do NOT get the 33% bonus when redeeming for travel with the Thank You Preferred card.Bottom Line
I will be applying for this card, because I can have a lot of Big Travel with Small Money with $665 in free travel!

Emily & I are extremely grateful to all readers who sign up for the card using our links. But you don’t have to. Both Emily and I have this card and each got $665 in free travel.
