Citi Prestige 3X points on travel/hotel – double dipping with Expedia ?

Citi Prestige 3X points on travel/hotel – double dipping with Expedia ?

  1. Adam123

    So Citi Prestige offers 3X points on air travel and hotels. My question is whether I can also earn Expedia reward points and airline points at the same time.
    For example, I purchase a $1,000 United flight on Expedia using Citi Prestige card. Am I eligible to receive 3000 points from Citi, 1000 points from Expedia, and whatever the mileage is from United ? Essentially this would be double dipping, and would this work?

    YES
    From the [URL=’https://www.citi.com/credit-card-details/citi.action?ID=citi-thankyou-premier-credit-card’]Citi Premier Card T&C Page[/URL]: it is clear that the travel agencies count towards Travel Category (3X).
    [I]………”[B]Travel agencies[/B] are classified as merchants that provide travel information and booking services, and include travel aggregators and tour operators.”[/I]
