Citi has finally launched their travel portal, Citi Travel with Booking.com.
Citi Prestige and Citi Premier cardmembers can earn a total of 10 ThankYou Points per dollar by booking hotels, rental cars, or eligible attractions via the portal. Citi Rewards+ and ThankYou Preferred and cardmembers can earn a total of 5 ThankYou Points per dollar on those bookings. Note that booking a hotel via the portal will mean that you won’t earn hotel points or have elite benefits from the chain.
Citi Premier cardholders can book their annual $100 off $500 hotel stay and Citi Prestige cardholders can book their annual 4th night free hotel benefit via the portal.
Unfortunately, Citi no longer offers an increased value for points redeemed via the portal like they used to, and as other banks like Chase continue to offer.
