Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – Citi Prestige Card
Since late July, the Citi Prestige Card’s been offering an elevated sign-up bonus of 75,000 ThankYou points — a TPG exclusive that we worked hard to make happen. That bonus, however, will soon expire, so if you’re interested, now’s the time to act.
While you need to spend $7,500 in the first three months to earn that points haul, and pay a $450 annual fee, the bonus is worth $1,125 based on TPG’s valuations, and the card offers some standout perks that can more than recoup the cost to keep the card open.
Perhaps the most notable perk is the 4th Night Free benefit, which gets you a complimentary fourth night at hotels when you book through the Citi Concierge. This has saved TPG staffers thousands of dollars at a variety of properties, from an overwater villa in Mexico to a room at the Beach Club Hamilton Island in Australia. While this benefit no longer includes taxes and fees and is calculated on the average night stay rather than the rate of the actual fourth night, it can still unlock some pretty significant savings.
The Citi Prestige also comes with a $250 annual air travel credit and up to a $100 statement credit for the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck application fee. You’ll also earn 3x points on air travel and hotels, 2x points on dining and entertainment, and 1 point per dollar on everything else. There are no foreign transaction fees.
We don’t know exactly when the 75,000-point bonus is ending, but we do know that it will expire soon. If you’re looking for some inspiration on how to use the points from the bonus, make sure to check out Nick Ewen’s posts on innovative ways to use 75k Citi points and the best ways to use 75k points without transfer partners.
