Normally, this card usually gives out 15K TY points. Go to this Citi link for the 25K TY points promo. This credit card deal is similar to the $250 Chase Freedom card deal. How? well, 25K TY points translate to $250 worth of gift cards. The only crappy part is that it has a $75 annual fee. I think this deal is still worth it.
My math breakdown:
25K points = $250
$250 – $75 annual fee = $175 profit
Of course you know me..here’s the hustle part is order to get away from the annual fee, ymmv of course.
After you received the card and cashed out the points, call them up and tell them to downgrade to the regular Premier Pass credit card. By doing this, they will refund the annual fee since the regular Premier pass has no annual fee. Some people confirmed this already. If the regular CSR doesn’t give it to you, then escalate to the manager claiming you made a mistake or you thought there wasn’t any fees with the elite card…ya heard?!! hustle’ on ladies and gentlemen…I’m richhhh biactchhhhhhh!!!
You should printout the above picture and offer…and tell them to give you the 25000 thank you points.
I just got my last statement, and they only awarded a measly 15000 thank you points. I specifically did sign up through that special link and I even saw the picture advertising that it was 25000 thank you points, but alas they only awarded 15000 thank you points.
