Oct. 9 - Citi Adds New 5X Bonus Category for 2020

Now through the end of 2020, holders of the Citi Prestige® Card can now earn 5 ThankYou points for every dollar spent on online, cable and streaming purchases. There are more than 20 eligible providers, including Amazon Prime Video, Apple Music, Disney+, ESPN+, HBO and Netflix. This new bonus category joins air travel and restaurants as purchases on which cardmembers can earn 5x points.

June 24 - Bank of America® Adds Limited-Time Dining, Grocery Perks

From now through Dec. 31, 2020, holders of the Bank of America® Travel Rewards credit card and the Bank of America® Business Advantage Travel Rewards World Mastercard® credit card can redeem points for grocery store, dining and takeout purchases at a rate of 1 cent per point. Those points are usually worth 1 cent only when redeemed for travel purchases. They usually have a lower value for other redemptions, like cash back or gift cards.

Meanwhile, holders of the Bank of America® Premium Rewards® credit card can receive up to $50 in statement credit for grocery store, dining and takeout purchases, also from now through Dec. 31, 2020. Credits will be applied automatically when you use the card for purchases in these categories.

May 1 - Citi Extends Sign-Up Bonus Windows, Adjusts Travel-Credit Rule

Citi is extending for three months the time new cardholders have to meet a minimum spending requirement to get a bonus. It applies to all new cardholders who opened an account between Dec. 1, 2019, and May 31, 2020. That's a retroactive enhancement for some cardholders whose window of opportunity to meet the spending requirement has already closed.

Citi is temporarily expanding the categories of purchases that qualify for the $250 travel credit benefit on the Citi Prestige® Card.

Between May 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020, cardholders can use the credit toward purchases at supermarkets and restaurants, including takeout — in addition to the usual travel spending.
