Yesterday’s Winner of the 2500 AAdvantage® miles is Charles Clarke with his tip “If you are travelling outside of the Continental US, AA has off-peak MileSAAver Economy class awards that save 5K-10K each way.” This is a great tip that I have taken advantage of, and we should all remember. Here’s the award chart and the off peak savings. This deal is definitely one of education.
Thanks to everyone that submitted a deal / tip, keep them coming!
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.
