INSIDER SECRET: When you have the Citi Premier℠ Card, your Citi ThankYou points are worth 25% more (1.25 cents each) toward travel booked through the Citi ThankYou portal, including cruises, airfare, hotels and rental cars.

Here’s a great offer on a card that earns valuable flexible rewards points: With the Citi Premier Card, you’ll earn 60,000 Citi ThankYou points when you spend $4,000 on purchases within the first three months of opening your account. The bonus alone is worth at least $750 in travel!

The most recent offer was 50,000 ThankYou points for opening the Citi Premier and meeting the minimum spending requirement. So this deal gets you an extra 10,000 Citi ThankYou points!

Read our Citi Premier review

The Citi Premier card comes with a 60,000 ThankYou point bonus after spending $4,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening.

You’ll also get perks like:

  • 3 Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent on travel including gas stations (also including airfare, hotels, car rental agencies, parking, tolls, and more)
  • 2 Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent at restaurants and on select entertainment (amusement parks, museums, sporting events, movies, and more)
  • 1 Citi ThankYou point per $1 on all other purchases
  • No foreign transaction fees

The card has a $95 annual fee.

With the Citi Premier your Citi ThankYou points are worth 25% more (1.25 cents each) when you redeem them for travel booked through the ThankYou travel portal. So this bonus is worth at least $750 in flights. Or you could transfer them to travel partners for potentially even more value.

For example, you can transfer Citi ThankYou points to Cathay Pacific (Asia Miles) at a 1:1 ratio. A one-way coach seat from New York to Vancouver is only 10,000 Cathay Pacific miles.

These flights can easily cost $200+. So with the Citi Premier’s intro bonus, you could book six of these award flights and save ~$1,200!

Or, you could transfer your Citi ThankYou points to Singapore Airlines. Then, book an award flight to Hawaii on Star Alliance partner United Airlines. A round-trip coach award ticket from the mainland US to Hawaii costs just 35,000 Singapore Airlines miles. So you’d have plenty of points to spare.

If you’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to earn Citi ThankYou points, now is your chance.

Just remember, because of Citi’s sign-up bonus rules, you’re not eligible to earn the sign-up bonus on this card if you have earned a new card member bonus for the Citi Rewards+℠ Card, Citi ThankYou Preferred (no longer available), Citi Premier, or Citi Prestige card in the past 24 months or closed any of those cards in the past 24 months.

Bottom Line

The welcome bonus on the Citi Premier card is now up to 60,000 Citi ThankYou points after spending $4,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening!

That’s 10,000 more points than the most recent sign-up bonus. So if you’ve been considering this card, now’s a great time to apply because the 60,000-point bonus is worth at least $750 in travel when you book through Citi’s ThankYou portal. And potentially more if you transfer your points to one of Citi’s travel partners, like Singapore Airlines.

I got the citi Premier alittle over a year ago, and have my husband as an authorized user on the account. Can he get his own citi Premier and still get the bonus now?

Hi Katie,

If he’s never earned an intro bonus, he should be eligible if he decides to now apply for his own card.

Do you think there’s any reason he should get removed as an authorized user on my card before he applies for his?

I just got the 50k bonus. Would they give me the extra 10k bonus or not worth asking?

Also without the companion pass is southwest a better option or Singapore-United to get to Hawaii from the east coast? I am wondering where to transfer to the points. Thanks.

It’s definitely worth asking to see if they’ll match to the higher offer. I’ve had Citi match a higher offer in the past, although recently there have been reports that they aren’t doing it as much.

And Singapore Airlines miles for United flights to Hawaii is probably a better option (unless the airfare is cheap) since ThankYou points are only worth 1.25 cents each toward flights (if you have the Citi Premier).
