The Citi® Dividend Platinum Select® Visa® Card will give 5% cash back on Hilton hotels, car rentals, movies and theme parks during the third quarter of the year, from July 1st through September 30th. However, rewards are capped at $300 cash back annually, which works out to $6,000 spent in bonus categories. How does the Citi® Dividend Platinum Select® Visa® Card stack up against the other 5% cash back behemoths? We’ll break down the perks and particulars of each one.
The Citi® Dividend Platinum Select® Visa® Card offers 5% cash back in rotating bonus categories that change every quarter and 1% elsewhere, and like we said, it caps rewards at $300 cash back earned per year. It comes with a sign-up bonus too: Earn $100 cash back after $500 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.. We generally think that the card is a good idea if you’re going to spend big in one of that quarter’s bonus categories – if you’re planning on spending $6k at the Hilton this summer, for example – because it imposes annual rather than quarterly limits. However, you’ll note that your non-bonus spending is essentially capped as well.
