Our Take

This card is basically Citi’s version of the  Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card. The ThankYou Points can either be used to book travel (airfare, hotels, etc.) via the Citi Travel Center or transferred to any of Citi’s transfer partners, which include Cathay Pacific, Air France, Etihad, Hilton, and more. Many, but not all, of the transfer rates are 1:1.

If you are over 5/24 and eligible to receive this card bonus, I think this card is a must get for any traveler.

You’ll want to be aware of Citi’s bonus and application rules before applying for this card.
