Just a quick reminder to all, Citibank normally has promotional offers for their card holders throughout the year. These offers are different from rotational category bonuses on some credit cards. These offers vary from time to time and are different for everyone. I’ve received a summer offer on my Citi TY Preferred Card for 4 extra bonus points on categories of gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants and drug store purchases. And after that ended, I received another offer for 4 extra bonus points at toy, electronics, computer and apparel stores!
Here’s a sample of the email I received:
So what does that mean? Keep a look out for your emails or paper mail and DON’T LET THOSE POINTS GO TO WASTE! It literally took me less than 30 seconds after clicking the “Enroll Now” link in the email. (5 TY points total is as good as getting 5% cashback in terms of reward cards).
My only complaint is that these promotional offers are non-transferable between other Citi cards that I own. I would have much preferred to take advantage of this promotional offer on the Citi Thank You Premier card that I’m paying an annual fee for! Hopefully enough people complain for Citibank to change their policy.
I’ve only seen such offers from Citibank, any other banks do the same?
