Citi Prestige 4th Night Free Benefit

Citi Prestige 4th Night Free Benefit

  1. Anonymous

    Hey Lucky,

    Hope you’re enjoying the massage chair in Dubai!

    I have an interesting question about an upcoming trip to Africa. I’ve been eyeing the Citi Prestige card for a while, but have yet to bite. My trip has me staying 4 nights at the Four Seasons in Serengeti. While I’ve read on your site that the fourth night free benefit can be used for AAA or government rates, do you think that the benefit can be applied for packages/rates that are actually more expensive than the BAR?

    There is a package that includes meals and safari drives, which costs more than the BAR. I would like to use the 4th night benefit for this stay.

    Thanks so much for all your daily posts!

    Hey Zach! It might depend on the property. I used the Prestige to book all-inclusive rates in the Maldives, and I think Mike is using it for a safari package at another hotel in Africa, so it’s potentially possible.

    Which Safari lodge in Africa was this?

    Hi Lucky/Tiffany,

    Here is a technical question on the CitiPrestige 4th-night-free:

    What are the limits to using the 4th-night-free’s in the context of long-stays in a particular city?
    Example: suppose we plan for 9 nights in one city…. are the following options feasible?

    (A) book first 4 nights under CitiPrestige (receive 4th-nf); book 5th night independently; book last 6th-9th nights under CitiPrestige again (and receive 9th-nf)

    (B) just as in (A) but using different hotels

    Lastly, does 4nf apply to short-stays with multiple rooms e.g. 2 rooms over 2 nights?

    Looking forward to your wisdom. Thanks a mil!

    A and B will both work. You can get it once per stay so both options will accomplish that. Last scenario does not work. Reservations must be for four nights and the benefits only apply to one reservation at a time at a property.

    Hi Gaurav – thank you very much!
    Good weekend

    So Currently Four Season Tanzania is offering a fourth night free under their own promos

    [USER=1992]@yaboobie[/USER] welcome! That 4th night free promo can’t be combined with the CitiPrestige 4th night free since in both cases it’s the 4th night that’s free. Citi’s stipulation is that the 4th night room rate is refunded, regardless of the prices of other nights in the reservation.

    Were you able to book this using the benefit? If so, did you provide the specific property or did they give you several options? Thanks

    No they wouldn’t allow it due to it being a safari property.
