The usual sign up bonus for the Citi ThankYou Premier Card is to earn 30,000 bonus ThankYou Rewards after you spend $3,000 in purchases with your card within the first 3 months of account opening. But for a limited time, the bonus is increased to 50,000 ThankYou Points with a minimum spend of $4,000.
With the card, there is a $0 Introductory annual Fee the first year, then $95. You earn 3x ThankYou Points on Travel that includes Airfare, Hotels, Travel Agencies, Gas and Parking. You earn 2x ThankYou Points on Dining out and Entertainment (click here for a detailed definition of entertainment). You earn 1X ThankYou Points on other purchases
There are no foreign transaction fees when you use your card on purchases made outside the United States. You need 20% fewer points when redeeming ThankYou points for airfare through the Citi ThankYou Travel Center. This means one Citi ThankYou point equals $0.0125 incremental value on travel. For example, a $250 airline ticket will cost you 20,000 Citi ThankYou points. Click here to learn more about redeeming points.
Lastly, you can transfer points to participating frequent travel programs with no transfer fees. Most points transfer at full 1:1 value – that means 1000 ThankYou points equal 1000 partner miles/points. Except for Hilton Honors where 1 Point = 1.5 Hilton Honors Bonus Points. At the time of this post, the participating Travel Loyalty Programs are: Asia Miles; Etihad Airways Guest; EVA Air Infinity Mileage Lands; Garuda Indonesia Frequent Flyer; Hilton Honors; Malaysia Airlines Enrich; Qatar Airways Privilege Club; Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer and Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus.
