Book Hotels and Car Rentals on Citi ThankYou

Until December 31, 2021, participating Citi credit cards earn an additional 3 ThankYou points per $1 on eligible hotel and car rental purchases booked through the ThankYou Travel Center Portal.

The participating credit cards and earning potential are as follows:

  • Citi Premier® Card: 6x points on hotels and car rental purchases booked through the ThankYou Travel portal
  • Citi Rewards+® Card: 4x points on hotels and car rental purchases booked through the ThankYou Travel portal

The discontinued Citi ThankYou Preferred is also participating in this holiday travel bonus.

Note that there is no limit on how many points you can earn during this promotion. It can be an excellent way to maximize your travel expenses for a family road trip.

Citi Premier Bonus Categories

In addition to this limited-time bonus category, the Citi Premier also regularly earns 3x ThankYou points on these purchases:

  • Air travel
  • Gas stations
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Supermarkets

Booking directly from the hotel continues to earn the standard 3 points per $1 award. All non-bonus purchases earn 1x ThankYou points.

This card also offers an annual $100 hotel statement credit when you book a minimum $500 hotel stay (excluding taxes and fees) using The first $100 in purchases may not earn purchase rewards if you haven’t redeemed this credit yet this year.

New Citi Premier® Card cardholders can earn an 80,000 ThankYou points signup bonus worth $800 in gift cards. Earn the bonus after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months.

Here’s the credit score you need to get the Citi Premier.

Citi Rewards+ Bonus Categories

The Citi Rewards+® Card has a tiered rewards structure:

  • 2 ThankYou points per $1 spent at supermarkets and gas stations (on the first $6,000 per year then 1x)
  • 1x ThankYou points on non-bonus purchases
  • Purchases round up to the next 10 points (i.e., 122 points becomes 130 points)

You will also get 10% of your points back on the first 100,000 points you redeem each year.

This card doesn’t charge an annual fee and technically isn’t a travel credit card. But it is participating in a couple of Citi’s travel-related bonuses.

American Airlines Mile Transfers

In addition to this bonus, these cards are also letting you transfer ThankYou points to American Airlines for a limited time. This transfer window ends on November 13, 2021.
