40K Citi ThankYou Premier Bonus Offer

40K Citi ThankYou Premier Bonus Offer


There's a 40K Citi ThankYou Premier link that is working (as of this writing) and which I've added as #10 on the Best Travel Credit Cards page. This card used to offer a 50K signup bonus, which later decreased to 40,000 ThankYou points as a sign-up bonus, and back in April, Citi reduced it to NO sign-up bonus (see No Citi ThankYou Premier Bonus and Harder to Get Citi Signup Bonuses Again), which is highly unusualy for a travel rewards cardit card, particularly one that does have an annual fee after the first year. After all, even the no annual fee Chase Freedom offers the equivalent of 15,000 Ultimate Rewards points as a signup bonus.

In any case, here are the 40K Citi ThankYou Premier offer details. If you want the 40K bonus, I recommend applying soon, as Citi could disable the link at any time.

  • Earn 40,000 ThankYou points after $3000 spend in the first 3 months of card membership
  • 3X ThankYou points on travel, including airlines, hotels, car rentals, travel agencies (including TravelSort's Award Booking Service and trip planning fees), taxis, rail travel, parking garages, tolls, cruises, gas stations
  • 2X ThankYou points on dining out and entertainment
  • ThankYou points can be transferred to Cathay Pacific Asia Miles, EVA Air, Etihad Guest, Air France/KLM FlyingBlue, Garuda Indonesia, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Qatar, Singapore KrisFlyer, Thai Airways, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club. The most attractive of these, in my view, is Singapore KrisFlyer. 
  • No foreign transaction fees 
  • No annual fee the first year, thereafter $95 per year 
I Can't Get the Link to Work in Google Chrome…
Try Safari or a different Web browser. I also occasionally had some problems getting the application to load in Google Chrome.
Am I Eligible for the 40,000 Points Signup Bonus If I Had the Card and Closed It Last Year?
No: per the terms “Bonus ThankYou Points not available if you have had a Citi ThankYou Premier card opened or closed in the past 24 months.”
Can I Transfer Citi ThankYou Points To Anyone's Frequent Flyer Account? What are the ThankYou Points Transfer Rules?
If I Close the Citi Prestige Card Does Having a Citi ThankYou Premier Card Keep my Citi Prestige ThankYou Points Alive?
No, this is a mistake a lot of people make, because they're used to how AMEX Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points work. Citi is not AMEX or Chase and has more stringent rules. See Where to Transfer Citi ThankYou Points Before Closing Credit Cards.
Do you have the Citi ThankYou Premier or plan to apply for it with the 40,000 ThankYou points signup bonus?
