In one of my first Smart Point newsletters, I recommended the Citi Premier Card, thanks to its stellar 80,000-point intro bonus. If you didn’t heed my suggestions back then and are still in the market for a travel card, it’s your last chance to grab the elevated bonus.
The Citi Premier represents exceptional value at only $95 a year. While it lacks the perks of its popular competitors, you won’t find many cards with this kind of earning potential and an intro bonus that high for its price point. Armed with the Premier, you’ll earn 3 x points per dollar on big spending categories like restaurants, gas stations, supermarkets, hotels, and airfare.
Of course, the soon-to-be-gone 80,000-point intro bonus is the reason to make the leap right now. Transferring the points strategically to one of Citi’s travel partners could equal over $1300 in travel.
Here’s what 80,000 Citi Thank You Reward miles can get you:
Five economy round trips to Hawaii
A round-trip from the US to Europe
Three one-way transcontinental first class flights
One-way business class to Japan
These are just a few of the many possible points of redemption. To earn the bonus, you’ll need to spend $4000 within the first three months of opening the card. You’ll even grab $100 off a $500 hotel stay. The bonus won’t be here for long, so act fast.
