It’s been rather hectic for us trying to keep up with the value of Citibank’s latest gift card giveaways for new card holders. Throughout the course of 2011 they’ve featured sign-up bonuses (in the form of points which can be redeemed for gift cards) of everywhere from $50-$300. The value of the gift card though has always depended on the type of Citi ThankYou Card you apply for. The Citi ThankYou Premier card has always garnered more rewards than that of the Citi ThankYou Preferred, however, the Preferred Card has generally allowed you to earn the reward points after just $300-$700 in purchases rather than $2,000 in purchases with the Premier offer.
Below are the CURRENT rewards for new Citi ThankYou Credit Card holders:
1) Citi ThankYou Preferred Rewards Card - $50 Gift Card after your first $300 in purchases.
You’ll also get a 0% intro APR for a whopping 15 months. The balance transfer fee is a standard 3% of the amount being carried over. You’ll rack up points at a rate of 5 for every $1 you spend on purchases at gas stations, supermarkets and drugstores for 12 months and 1 point for every $1 you spend thereafter. There are no limits to the points you can earn AND no annual fee associated with this card.
2) Citi ThankYou Preferred Rewards Card – $200 in Gift Cards after your first $700 in purchases.
You’ll also get a 0% intro APR for just 7 months (half of the time allowed from the offer above). The balance transfer fee is still the standard 3% of the amount being carried over. You’ll rack up points at a rate of 1 for every $1 you spend on all purchases PLUS an additional chunk of bonus points on your anniversary, but this amount has not been disclosed yet. There is also no annual fee associated with the card.
3) Citi ThankYou Premier Rewards Card – $300 in Gift Cards after your first $1,500 in purchases within the first 3 months of opening the card.
Unlike the the two different Preferred Card offers above this one is more geared towards point accumulation and travel rewards rather than balance transfers. You’ll get 1 ThankYou point for every dollar you spend on all purchases. You’ll earn points for the miles you fly when you purchase a ticket with your Premier Card. You’ll encounter NO foreign transaction fees on purchases when traveling abroad. And you’ll get an annual complimentary domestic companion ticket within the continental USA, when booked through the Citi travel benefits provider. Plus there are No points caps and no expiration of points.
