Citi cards: 5% back for online shopping November 24-30


Just in time for Black Friday / Cyber Monday shopping, Citi is out with a nice cardholder offer: Earn 5% back for online shopping purchases made between November 24 and 30, 2020.  Registration is required.

The Deal

Eligible cardmembers get 5% back on up to $500 spend as a statement credit for online spending from November 24-30.  Details:

  • Visit between November 16-30 to enroll.
  • Make online purchases between November 24-30 to earn the credit.
  • Most US-issued Citibank cards are eligible.
  • If you have multiple cards, you may enroll each of them.
  • Each enrolled card is eligible for up to $25 back (5% of $500)

Card eligibility details: You must have an eligible Citi credit card with an open account as of 10/23/2020 to qualify for this offer. Citi-branded consumer and small business credit cards are eligible for this offer except for Corporate, Professional, Debit, Retail cards (including, but not limited to, Best Buy, Macy’s, Home Depot, L.L. Bean, Shell, Sears) as well as authorized users of the Costco Anywhere Visa® consumer and small business cards and CitiBusiness®/ AAdvantage® Platinum Select card.

My Take

This is a nice little holiday present from Citi.  I was easily able to enroll all of my and my wife’s Citi cards.  The ability to get 5% back, in addition to each card’s usual rewards, is excellent.  Plus, this should stack with other promos that Citi has been offering, such as Citi Prestige 5X for online and more.  And, if you call Citi to ask for a retention offer, in my experience you have a good chance of getting a bonus spend offer such as earn 2 extra points per dollar, up to 35K extra points.

For those who follow Frequent Miler on the Air (What Crazy Thing Did Citi Do This Week?), it will be interesting to see if Citi ever bothers to alert their customers about this deal.
