5x Points Offer Has Expired

The Citi ThankYou® Premier Card is already one of the three cards I carry. I got it for the massive 40,000 ThankYou Point sign up bonus that I can transfer to airlines like Singapore and AirFrance for tricky awards. I carry it for the big category bonuses and no foreign transaction fees:

  • Earn 3 ThankYou Points for every $1 spent on purchases for gas and travel
  • Earn 2 ThankYou Points for every $1 spent on dining out and entertainment

Now I got an email offering even more bonus points on my Citi ThankYou® Premier Card. The email had the subject line:

Earn 5X ThankYou® Points on eligible purchases | Enroll in one click!

I was offered 5x points per dollar at clothing stores, electronics and computer stores, toy stores, and department stores through March 31.

All these stores normally earn just 1x, so this deal offers 4 bonus points per dollar (5 total points). I am limited to 2,500 bonus points, which means only my first $625 spent in these categories will earn 5x.

I clicked “Enroll with one click” and was taken to a screen letting me know I was enrolled.

I’ll be sure to use my Citi ThankYou® Premier Card at those stores when I’m back in the States in March.
