The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

The Citi Premier Card is still one of the best starter cards out there, combining a stellar intro points bonus and some strong spending categories into a fair $95-a-year package.

To grab the (limited time) bonus of 80,000 points, you’ll need to spend $4000 in the first three months of opening the card. The bonus alone is worth almost $1400 when transferred to a travel partner, and with 3 X points per dollar on restaurants, gas stations, supermarkets, hotels, and airfare, there’s ample opportunity to build on your points balance.

Pros

  • Strong 80,000-point intro worth up to $1400

  • Excellent earning opportunity in high spend categories

  • $100 off on a stay of $500 or more

  • Points are highly transferable with 16 travel partners

  • World Elite Mastercard protections

Cons

  • No premium perks

  • $95 annual fee
