We've long extolled the benefits of the Citi Prestige Card; in fact, it won our Amex Platinum vs. Visa Black Card vs. Citi Prestige showdown, coming up the winner or runner-up in almost every category. And now there's even more reason to love this card — because who doesn't like additional discounts?
For a long time, one of the few drawbacks of this card when using it for hotel bookings was that you couldn't combine the fourth night free benefit with the top discount rate services that travelers use. Well, those days are over; now, the Citi Prestige fourth night free reward works with AAA and AARP discounted rates. And there are no blackout dates, so get to booking!
To use this benefit you have to call Citi’s Travel Concierge service, since there’s no way for you to book hotels through this service online. However, you can look for available hotels in advance by using the Carlson Wagonlit website. In most cases, the travel concierge will take down the information about your stay (location, date, price range, etc.), and Carlson Wagonlit Travel will send you an email within 24 hours with a list of available hotels and prices.
Remember, the fourth night free benefit is a rebate situation; you still have to pay for all four nights using your Citi Prestige card, and you'll receive a statement credit later. There's more good news here, however — since you're paying for the fourth night, you'll still get the 3x points for your entire hotel stay, including the fourth night. It's like Inception, but for benefits!
