[Expired] Citi’s Best Ever 60k Offer on ThankYou Premier Card
Back in August, Citi increased the offer on the ThankYou Premier Card. This offer is now expired.
The card is currently offering 60,000 Citi ThankYou points after spending $4,000 within the first three months of card membership. This card has previously offered welcome bonuses of 30,000 and 50,000 ThankYou points, but this is the best ever offer we have seen on the card. To learn more about this card, visit the Points Rewards cards section on our Top Credit Cards page.

Citi ThankYou Transfer Partners
Out of all the transferable points currencies (Chase Ultimate Rewards, Amex Membership Rewards, SPG/Marriott & Citi ThankYou), Citi ThankYou certainly has the weakest transfer partner options. I find it interesting that unlike Chase (United) and American Express (Delta), Citi doesn’t offer a transfer option to American Airlines’ AAdvantage program considering their co-branded card partnership.
However, that being said, there is still a ton of value that can be found with Air France-KLM’s Flying Blue program and Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program to name a few.
For example, you can easily find a one-way business class award ticket on Singapore Airlines, the top airline in the world for between 65,000 and 92,000 KrisFlyer miles. See a full list of Citi ThankYou transfer partners below.
|Transfer Partner||Transfer Ratio|
|Air France KLM FlyingBlue||1:1|
|Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer||1:1|
|Cathay Pacific Asia Miles||1:1|
|EVA Air Infinity MileageLands||1:1|
|Garuda Indonesia GarudaMiles||1:1|
|Jet Airways JetPrivilege||1:1|
|Malaysia Airlines Enrich||1:1|
|Qatar Privilege Club||1:1|
|Qantas Frequent Flyer||1:1|
|Thai Royal Orchid Plus||1:1|
|Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles||1:1|
|Virgin Atlantic Flying Club||1:1|
The 60,000 ThankYou point welcome offer is worth your attention. Because the points can be redeemed for airfare on any airline at the rate of 1.25 cents per point, this welcome bonus alone is worth at least $750.
This is also one of the only flexible points currency cards that offers a bonus category at gas stations. If you spend a lot of money on gas, this card is worth a look.

Who Can Apply for the Citi ThankYou Premier Card?
If you have opened or closed the ThankYou Preferred card, ThankYou Premier card or the Citi Prestige card within the past 24 months, you will not be approved. This means you can have one of these cards open, you just can’t have opened it or closed it within the last 24 months.
You can also apply for only one Citi credit card every eight days and no more than two every 65 days, so this will need to be considered.
There is no expiration date listed on this offer, so I wouldn’t wait if you think this card would be a good fit for you. With no annual fee in year one and the ability to earn $750 towards airfare is a no-brainer in my book. To learn more about this card, visit the Points Rewards cards section on our Top Credit Cards page. The offer is now expired.
