Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – Citi Prestige Card

There’s no doubt that the Citi Prestige is one of the most rewarding travel credit cards out there, mainly because of its nifty 4th Night Free benefit, which once saved TPG Editor-in-Chief Zach Honig $1,490 on a single hotel booking. Citi also changed its system recently to make booking 4th Night Free stays even easier. Now, the company is targeting select Prestige cardholders who’ve recently used the benefit, offering them a $50 Amazon Gift Card to say thanks.

Several TPG staff members are Citi Prestige cardholders, yet only one received the email with information on how to get the Gift Card — each targeted cardholder receives a unique code that they can input on Amazon.com to receive the $50 credit. The email reads:

Thank you for using your Citi® Prestige Concierge to book your recent hotel stay utilizing our “Fourth Night Free” benefit. We are glad that you were able to “stay a little bit longer,” thanks to this benefit available exclusively to Citi® Prestige cardmembers.

As a small token of our appreciation and your loyalty, we are including in this email a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card. This is our way of saying “thank you” for using this service and being a loyal Citi® Prestige cardmember.

Your Amazon.com Gift Card can easily be redeemed for purchases on Amazon.com.

It’s not clear exactly who Citi’s targeting for this offer, but it’s definitely worth checking your email to see if you did get it. Several people on FlyerTalk have reported getting the $50 Amazon Gift Card, with one person saying they’d only used the 4th Night Free benefit a few times in the past year.

This out-of-the-blue perk is a prime example of how having a premier travel rewards credit card can benefit you beyond earning valuable, transferable points. The Citi Prestige currently comes with a sign-up bonus of 50,000 points after you spend $3,000 in the first three months. You’ll also get an annual $250 air travel credit, access to Admirals Club and Priority Pass lounges, a $100 Global Entry fee credit and access to the 4th Night Free benefit, among many other perks. The card comes with a $450 annual fee, but that can easily be justified by the perks you’ll receive.
