Citi ThankYou® Premier Card has long had an offer that give you 50,000 bonus ThankYou® Points, But you got 20,000 points after $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening and then 30,000 points after another $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of your second year of being a cardmember. So this was never a real deal.
But now Citi has a targeted offer where you can earn 50,000 bonus ThankYou® Points after $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. 50,000 bonus points are redeemable for up to $500 in gift cards, up to $625 for airfare or other great rewards.
To check if you qualify for the offer, go to their pre-qualification tool and enter your information. No credit check is performed. If you’re lucky, you might get a pretty good Citi offer. I only qualified for the standard TY Premier Card offer, but Tim, the other contributor to the blog, did receive the offer mentioned here for 50K points after 3K purchase in the first 3 months. I tried the pre-qualification tool with my wife’s information and one of my parents as well, and they didn’t get the offer either. Tim does have the Citi Executive / AAdvantage Card, so that might make a difference.
Let us know if you received the upgraded offer, and if you currently have any other Citi products.
