earn 5 points for every $ spent on citi thank you rewards
« on: August 15, 2011, 12:57:12 PM »
I got an offer in the mail to get 5 points for every $ spent on the citi thank you card. the offer is good thru 11/30/11
it had an invitation number so i guess its targeted.

i am trying to reach a spending threshold on a AA card (though i have another few months)

is it worth it to start spending on this card?
I assume i got this offer bec i havent purchased anything with it for the past 2 months, bec i didn't think it was worth it and bec i was aiming for my spending threshold.

the points arent worth that much, but figuring 5 points for every $ (plus a point from the flying points) does that make it worth it?

a ticket worth $300 would mean spending $5000

Not sure how it works with citi, but generally the "cap" is the max amount of points that can be earned,  and not the max base points/spend.

Meaning,  with your promo,  once you spend $500 you hit the cap.

-1
Incorrect. The additional points are capped at 2,500, meaning you get 5x on up to $625.

Edit: From the T&C: "Bonus points awarded with this offer are subject to a cap of 2,500 additional points."
