Citi Prestige offered me $7 points per dollar spent on hotel and airline and car rental.

 This offer is good for six months with  maximum Of 35,000 thank you points.   My question is what would you do with 35k and additional 60K thank you points?

The heck with what I would do Lol

Tell me how you got the offer? 

 

Oh and a trip somewhere in Asia 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

    MJ I would call right now because I've had mine seven months. The representative even inform me to call back at the one-year mark because it would probably be more offers. They will definitely be getting a call from me late May early June seeing that they are doing away with a lot of the products and services that I know every credit card does and they have the right to but I'm gonna hit them up for something else to make it worth my wild. HELL Took my golf benefit away that's what makes me angry.

Golf, Admirals Club and 1.60x of AA redemptions, yes fourth night free is nice but that's all this card offers right now, bummed it will be gone in July.  Prestige may be in my rear view mirror in April.  

 

BTW, Amex has better retention offers than what I see Citi is offering.  Amex Plat gives me 5x airline purchases with no retention offer, so with my soon amex bus plat gives me 2 cents per MR for airline redemption........CSR 3x UR points for hotels, bye, bye TY points......

 

Citi lost a step while amex and chase gained a step or two.



Personal Cards: Amex Plat | Amex Delta Res | Amex Hilton | CSR | Citi AA Exec Business Cards: Ink+ | Amex BGR

That sort of thing will likely happen again (Amex change was only a result of Chase's success with the CSR) and the Prestige isn't a bad card still even after the nerfs; then again Admirals Club does nothing for me as my travel plans probably don't include domestic flights anyway this next year... and golf just ain't my style personally.

 

Admittedly the AA change would annoy me if this were back in 1996 where I had a road gig hubbed out of Dallas, oh how I wish I'd known about credit cards then heh, though rewards aren't what they are today to be sure.
