The offer described in this article expired in January 2022. See our review of the Citi Premier® Card for the current offer.

For a limited time, new Citi Premier® Card card holders can earn an elevated sign-up bonus: Earn 80,000 bonus ThankYou® Points after you spend $4,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. Depending on how you redeem, it can be up to $800 in value. This is a 33% increase from the 60,000 ThankYou Points that the card perviously offered.

Otherwise, the features of the $95-annual-fee Citi Premier® Card remain the same. You’ll earn:

  • 3 points per $1 spent at restaurants, supermarkets and gas stations, as well as on air travel and hotels.

  • 1 point per $1 on all other purchases.

You can also get $100 off a single hotel stay costing $500 or more (not including taxes and fees) each calendar year when you book through

ThankYou Points can be redeemed in a variety of ways:

  • Redeem for travel booked through Citi at a value of 1 cent per point (previously, you could redeem for travel for 1.25 cents per point).

  • Redeem for cash back at a value of 1 cent per point.

  • Redeem for gift card purchases, bill payments and more. For many redemptions, points are worth 1 cent each.

  • Transfer to one of Citi's partners at a 1:1 ratio.

  • Shop with points at participating online merchants.
