As the pandemic moves into a new year, issuers continue to entice cardholders to hang onto their travel credit cards, despite the fact that many are putting travel on hold.

Previously, Citi announced that Citi Prestige® cardholders could use the card’s $250 travel credit on supermarkets and restaurants through the end of 2020. And that’s now been extended through the end of 2021.

In a normal year, the Citi Prestige comes with an annual $250 travel credit awarded to cardholders that can be used on a variety of purchases as long as they’re coded as travel. That includes airlines, hotels, car rentals, commuter services, tolls and much more. However, flexibility is key during a time of uncertainty about travel.

For 2020 and now for 2021, you’ll be able to use this credit on grocery stores and restaurants (which should include online grocery delivery services such as Instacart and delivery services such as Grubhub and DoorDash).

This expanded travel credit benefit falls in line with how Chase has made its $300 travel credit on the Chase Sapphire Reserve even more flexible. For instance, you can use the Sapphire Reserve’s $300 annual travel credit on purchases at grocery stores and gas stations through the end of 2021.

This update from Citi is just one of the many benefits to help customers find value in their cards amidst a global pandemic that continues to wreak havoc on travel. Citi Prestige cardholders can now easily make use of the $250 travel benefit on groceries and restaurants through the end of 2021.
