The Citi Prestige® Card now comes with 40,000 bonus ThankYou Points after $4,000 in purchases made with your card in the first 3 months the account is open. (How ThankYou Points Work)

It also comes with a $250 Air Travel Credit each calendar year. I can understand why some people are initially scared of the card's $450 annual fee, but I cannot understand why anyone would skip the card because of the annual fee.

Yesterday, Citi launched a 50,000 point offer on the Citi Prestige after spending $3,000 in the first three months. The previous offer was 30,000 points after $2,000 in spending.

Read my analysis of the new offer.

I had gotten the old offer last week, so I was eager to see if I could be matched to the new, better offer.
