Back in July, I noticed an increased sign up bonus for the Citi ThankYou Premier card. The previous high for the sign up bonus on this card was 50,000 points so it was a bit of a scoop. Good things can’t last forever though, and rumors are out that the increased sign up bonus for this card will be ending on October 11th.
If you are eligible for the sign up bonus for this card, it might be a good idea to sign up ASAP. Here’s why…
The affiliate links (people who actually get paid by Citibank for referrals) will be expiring on October 11th. According to No Mas Coach, all of the sign up links for the Citi Premier will be removed from the Citi website on Wednesday, as well.
Now, Citi has already removed the Citi ThankYou Prestige from the website and is no longer taking new applications. Is the same fate due for the Premier? What are Citi’s plans for the ThankYou Program? Who knows!?!?
Here’s what you really need to know:
You are only able to apply for a Citi card in the same family of cards (ThankYou, American Airlines) if you have not OPENED or CLOSED an account in that card family for the last 24 months. It’s been over 2 years since Sharon opened her Citi Prestige card so she’s eligible for the Premier. I’ve been considering if it’s worth keeping the Prestige as the annual fee would be due in November. This would the best time to open a Premier and close the Prestige.
At times like this, you have decide if it’s worth pulling the trigger when an offer is going away. I’ve been mulling over this one for a while and since I was going to get the card anyway, might as well apply now.
