Citi is a TPG advertising partner.
What do Costco, TSA PreCheck and Hulu all have in common? They are all partnering with Citi to offer up to $200 in rebates for purchases made by Citigold clients.
Here's how it works.
Using your Citigold account, you'll need to choose which merchants you want rebates for and register. You have plenty of options from TSA PreCheck and Global Entry, Amazon Prime, Audible, Costco, Hulu and Spotify. You'll need to make those purchases using a Citigold debit card. Then, you'll automatically be reimbursed for those purchases. Keep in mind that only subscriptions are eligible to be rebated. According to Citibank, additional goods purchased in the same transaction won't get you your rebate.
Note that to even have a Citigold Banking and Wealth Management account, you'll need to have a lot of money in the bank. Citibank's own website says you'll need to maintain "a minimum combined average monthly balance of $200,000 in eligible linked deposit, retirement and investment accounts."
If you have enough cash on hand to be an elite Citigold member, the perks are quite good. We've written before about how you'll receive Citigold Concierge service, higher earning rates for ThankYou points, waived foreign exchange fees and free entrance to museums and cultural destinations.
The move comes after Chase's rolled out its competitor product, Sapphire Banking, which offers premium perks to customers with big bank accounts.
Of course, there are several other ways to receive TSA Precheck and Global Entry rebates without needing nearly a quarter of a million dollars on hand. The Platinum Card® from American Express, Chase Sapphire Reserve and many other credit cards include an application fee credit for Global Entry and TSA PreCheck.
