I got this email on Saturday because I have a Citi Prestige® Card.

It looks like it is designed to remind people about their $250 Air Travel Credit, and that it is personalized to include how much of your 2015 credit you received and how much of your 2016 credit you’ve gotten so far.

As I already wrote about, I got all of my 2015 credit on my first 2015 statement and all of my 2016 credit for airfare purchased in 2015 that appeared on my January 2016 statement.

But if you haven’t gotten your full 2016 credit yet, you can get it by using your Prestige to purchase:

  • airfare on any airline
  • award taxes, fees, and fuel surcharges
  • baggage fees
  • seat selection fees
  • pre-booked onboard food
  • change fees
  • cancellation fees
  • miles from airlines that process their own miles sales
  • pretty much anything charged directly by an airline

If you haven’t gotten the Citi Prestige® Card yet, it comes with 50,000 bonus points (worth $800 in American Airlines flights) after spending $3,000 in the first three months on the Citi Prestige® Card. Plus free airport lounge access worldwide and your fourth night free on hotel stays. Why I got the card.

The card has a $450 annual fee, but if you get it today you can get a $250 Air Travel Credit in 2016 and a $250 Air Travel credit in early 2017 that more than cancels out the annual fee.

Did you get the email? Have you racked up $500 in Air Travel Credit for 2015 and 2016 yet?

Earn 80,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Plus earn up to $50 in statement credits towards grocery store purchases within your first year of account opening.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 80,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months and 2x points earned on dining and travel spend, this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
