So this is pretty cool. The Citi Rewards+ card is a new card that:
- Earns 2X Citi ThankYou points at supermarkets and gas stations on up to $6,000 in spending per year (then 1X)
- Rounds up every purchase to the nearest 10 points (spend $2, earn 10 points, say)
- Rebates 10% of your redeemed miles on up to 100,000 points per year
- Has NO annual fee
I product changed my old Citi Diamond Preferred to the Rewards+, and that was that. Until today, when I saw a random 1,600 ThankYou points in my account.
The only activity I’d had recently was transferring 16,000 Citi ThankYou points to Qantas. Then I realized – the Rewards+ card’s 10% rebate worked on the redeemed ThankYou points, even though I earned them with other ThankYou cards.
For a card that’s free to keep, that’s up to 10,000 points back in my account every year – and I value those for $200 at least. An as long as this works, I will 100% keep my Prestige card long-term.
This pairing is pretty awesome – and seems to work with any other ThankYou card and for any type of redemption (points transfer, travel booked directly, etc).
When you combine the rebate with points transfer bonuses and 1.25 cents for travel – it gets all that much better.
