Link: Apply now for the Citi Premier® Card
The Citi Premier® Card continues to have a great welcome bonus, which is a solid deal on one of my favorite mid-range credit cards. In this post I wanted to recap the details of this offer, for those who are considering applying.

Earn 60,000 ThankYou points & more with the Citi Premier
The $95 annual fee Citi Premier Card is offering a welcome bonus of 60,000 ThankYou points after spending $4,000 within the first three months. On top of that, for a limited time, the card is offering 10x ThankYou points on hotels and rental cars when booked through the Citi Travel portal through June 30, 2024.
Citi ThankYou points can either be redeemed for one cent each toward a variety of travel purchases or gift cards, or can be transferred to Citi ThankYou airline and hotel partners. In other words, 60,000 points can get you at least $600 worth of travel or gift cards, or 60,000 airline miles. Personally I like to convert those points into airline miles for first and business class travel, to get the most value.
Citi’s general application rules apply, and on top of that the welcome bonus isn’t available if you’ve received a bonus on this exact card in the past 48 months. Eligibility for the bonus on this card is unrelated to whether you’ve received a bonus on any other Citi credit card.
Why the Citi Premier Card is worth having
- The Citi Premier has the most well rounded bonus categories of any mid-range card, as it offers 3x ThankYou points on airfare, dining, gas, groceries, and hotels, all with no foreign transaction fees
- Having the Citi Premier Card allows you to maximize the value you get from the no annual fee Citi Double Cash® Card (review), which is one of the best cards for everyday, non-bonused spending; this card can earn you up to 2x ThankYou points per dollar spent on everyday purchases
- The Citi Premier offers a $100 hotel credit every calendar year, valid on a single hotel stay of $500 or more that’s booked through the Citi Travel portal; for some this alone will more than justify the annual fee
The Citi Premier Card is offering a bonus of 60K ThankYou points. On top of that, through June 30, 2024, you can earn 10x ThankYou points on hotels and rental cars booked through the Citi Travel portal.
Beyond the bonus, this card has a great value proposition in the long run, with 3x points categories, an annual hotel credit, and more. If you don’t yet have the Citi Premier Card and are eligible, I’d consider applying with this offer.
