Our band of brothers comes through again. It seems many of you received emails today with a better Continental One Pass Card offer than I have had on the blog. The new offer is 50,000 miles after first purchase and no first year fee. Thank you very much for passing the information along.
This is tough to turn down now, but keep in mind that the Continental Mileathon promotions begins on February 1st, and your application then will earn more miles in the promotion.
Here is the
link (offer expired) for the 50,000 mile offer. It also includes the First Checked Bag free and the Lounge Passes on the anniversary.
I have removed all the ads on the blog for the 30,000 mile offer except the one in the right hand column which I am contracted to keep up.
Be sure to make screen shots or print the 50,000 mile offer when you apply. It is quite the bonanza week with the nice American Express/Delta transfer offer as well. Happy travels.
Citi Prestige® Card
- Annual Fee: $450 fee
- Foreign Fees: No
- Card Type: Bank
The increase to 50,000 ThankYou points for the Citi Prestige card may be a signal that Citi wants back in the game, big time. The sign-up bonus has just been increased to 50K points from the previous 30K offer. An added benefit is a $250 annual air travel credit each calendar year -- so, if you sign up in April, you'll receive the credit this year, and again in January of next year -- which more than covers the $450 first year fee. When you add in lounge access for you and up to two of your guests, you’ve added another $400+ in value. One more benefit worth mentioning is the fourth night free for any four-night hotel stay booked through Wagonlit Travel. And lastly is the $100 statement credit when you sign up for Global Entry and pay for it using the Prestige card. Don’t forget the ever-growing number of airline transfer partners that work with the ThankYou points program.
