If you’ve been thinking about applying for the Citi Prestige card, you may want to do so soon.
Let’s review the perks of this card and whether it’s a good idea to sign-up before the change takes effect!
What’s the Deal?
Link: Citi Prestige
On July 19, 2016, the sign-up bonus for the Citi Prestige will change. But we don’t know if it will be a better (or worse!) offer.
Currently, the Citi Prestige has an excellent sign-up bonus of 50,000 Citi ThankYou points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account. That’s worth $800 toward flights on American Airlines or its codeshare partners for international travel.
If, as some folks have suggested, the sign-up bonus decreases, you’ll be in good shape if you apply for the Citi Prestige now.
But the bonus could increase, though it’s never been higher than 50,000 ThankYou points.
If you apply now and the bonus does go up, you could always try calling Citi to be matched to the improved bonus. But there are no guarantees!
Do you plan on applying before the sign-up bonus changes?
