1st time using Citi Presitge 4th night free
I’m using the 4th night free benefit from Citi Prestige for the 1st time. Looking at a Hong Kong 5* hotel, so I looked at the hotel website and see a Deluxe [B]PEAK-VIEW ROOM[/B] with Executive Club Package. So I called Citi Prestige thinking I could book this room and rate. The woman assisting me tells me it is a “package” rate and they usually cannot access package rates for the 4th night free. Says they can usually book special rates though. I ask about any Club level rooms and she puts me on hold for a bit, comes back and says she found a Club Premier [B]HARBOUR-VIEW ROOM[/B] with a 3rd night free special. She tells me I will get the 3rd night free (on the hotel bill) and then refunded the 4th night on my statement. This is the equivalent of 2 nights for the price of 4 nights!
This sounds incredible. My question is does this sound too good to be true? Am I going to get the shaft when I get my statement? I did get a confirmation and the email from Citi says “eligible to receive a complimentary fourth night as an exclusive Prestige benefit”. I’m a bit skeptical. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
This is totally fine, for now. There is a post about it here: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2016/05/25/citi-prestige-fourth-night-free-faqs/[/URL]
Changes to the card benefits doing go into effect until July 2017, which changes the benefit to refund the [I]average[/I] cost of a hotel night on a 4 night stay.
Ha, you know I saved this post on FAQs but forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder!
