Some banks are extending credit card bonus offers this spring as households stay home. A number of banks are giving you more time to earn signup bonuses. Citi is the latest bank to extend bonus offers and benefits, such as the Citi Prestige® Credit Card travel credit.

Citi Extends Bonus Offers – Credit Card Extensions

The information for the Citi Premier℠ Card has been collected independently by Johnny Jet. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Good news! You have an extra 3 months to earn the signup bonus on new Citi credit cards you open between December 1, 2019, and May 31, 2020.

Instead of having the standard 3 months, you now have 6 months. The one caveat is that you qualify for the standard bonus offer when you apply. This extension is similar to American Express which gives a 3-month extension to all eligible personal and small business credit cards you apply for by May 31, 2020.

So, for instance, instead of 3 months you have 6 months to spend $4,000 to earn the Citi Premier℠ Card signup bonus. This bonus is the same 60,000 Citi ThankYou points worth up to $750 in award flights.

This 3-month extension applies to the branded American Airlines credit cards too, such as the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard®. It appears this extension applies to the personal and business Citi credit card lineup.

$250 Citi Prestige Travel Credit

The information for the Citi Prestige® Credit Card has been collected independently by Johnny Jet. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

If you have the premium Citi Prestige, it’s easier to redeem the $250 travel credit this year. This credit normally offsets your first $250 in annual travel purchases.

From May 1, 2020, to December 31, 2020, Citi automatically applies the credit to supermarket and restaurant purchases. This credit expansion is handy if you plan on using travel points for your remaining 2020 award travel.

The Citi Prestige is still a premium credit card at its core. You will continue to enjoy these card benefits:

  • Earn 5x ThankYou points on air travel and restaurants
  • Earn 3x points on hotels and cruise lines (1x points for everything else)
  • 4th hotel night free on a 4+ night stay (up to two times per year)
  • Priority Pass Select airport lounge access
  • Global Entry or TSA PreCheck application fee credit
  • Airline point transfers

Bottom Line

If you have been thinking about getting a credit card and want to earn the signup bonus, this can be a good time to find the card for you. Because you are getting extra time to earn the signup bonus, you can space out your purchases and pay them off in full.
