Citi Double Cash Crowned King of Everyday Spend

Citi has changed the landscape of travel reward cards by giving Double Cash cardholders the ability to transfer their cash rewards to the ThankYou point program, given that they also hold either a Citi Premier or Prestige Card. I'll start at the conclusion as far as what this means and work backward: The Double Cash card now has the potential to earn 2 ThankYou Points per dollar spent on ALL purchases, with no cap on points earned. Enjoy your crown for now, Citi, and I'll enjoy watching the other card issuers scramble to catch up.

Citi Prestige Cardholders Now Earn 5x on Dining & Air Travel

It's time to take that Citi Prestige Card you forgot about out of your sock drawer and put it back in your wallet. I'm sure there are quite a few of you who kept this card around for it's Fourth Hotel Night Free benefit, as those who pay to stay at hotels can save thousands of dollars from it every year that easily make up for the $450 annual fee. That benefit is being devalued later in the year, at which point you may want to reconsider whether keeping the card longterm is worth it.

Citi ThankYou Premier 40,000 Point Sign Up Bonus Returns!

The Citi ThankYou Premier Card is once again offering 40,000 bonus ThankYou Points after $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. Citi dropped the sign up bonus on the ThankYou Premier Card earlier this year, and since April the card has had no sign up bonus whatsoever.

What to Do With Leftover ThankYou Points if Canceling Prestige or Premier

Citi issues lots of cards that earn ThankYou Points, but not all of them earn a type of Thank You Point that can be transferred to airline and hotel loyalty programs partners like the Citi Prestige and Premier cards do.
