I’ve often said that credit card welcome offers are one way to get a lot of miles in a short amount of time.  I have also often said that you should not signup for a credit card just because some guy on the Internet says that you should!  One pretty good bonus that has been going on is 80,000 ThankYou points for signing up for the Citi ThankYou Premier 80000 ThankYou point offer and spending $4,000 in the first 3 months of having the card.  (SEE: Top credit card offers)

Keep in mind that according to the current rules and credit card signup best practices, you will not be approved to get the bonus ThankYou points if you’ve opened or gotten a new cardmember bonus on ANY of the ThankYou cards (Citi Prestige / Citi Premier / Citi Preferred / Citi Rewards +) in the past 24 months.

Where 80,000 Citi ThankYou points can take you

Citi ThankYou points are transferrable to a wide variety of partners.  Here are 5 of my favorites

And of course, you could use your 80,000 ThankYou points as “cash points” – good for $800 on a variety of travel and gift cards. This may not be the most optimal use of ThankYou points, but depending on your travel goals, can get you where you want to be (SEE: The folly and fallacy of using miles for economy travel)

Just don’t let me see you redeeming for THIS offer (even if you get 10% off)

3 other reasons to consider the Citi ThankYou Premier card

Here are 3 other reasons you might consider getting the Citi ThankYou Premier card

  • 3X points on airfare, dining, gas, groceries, and hotels

Where to get the Citi ThankYou Premier 80K offer

If you would like to support PWaC by signing up for the Citi ThankYou Premier card on our top offers page (You can find it under the “Featured cards” link / section).

If you’d like to support other sites, I would imagine most bloggers would have their own links.  If you prefer your money and support go to Citibank executives and shareholders :-D, I’d imagine there are direct links on Citibank’s homepage.

Again, I repeat – please do not sign up for this card just because I (or anyone else) says so – do your own research and make your own decisions, but I think that this is a pretty good offer.
