Citi’s turn: Use Prestige credit at supermarkets / restaurants, more time to meet spend


Last night, the news broke about Bonvoy credit cards getting a bonus on groceries. This morning, Amex announced a major overhaul bonusing US Supermarkets on many cards and making statement credits available for dining, streaming, wireless phone service, and more. Next up to bat is Citi, which just announced that between May 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020, in addition to eligible Travel purchases, purchases made with a Prestige card at Supermarkets and Restaurants (including takeout) will also count toward the Prestige card’s $250 Travel Credit benefit in 2020. That’s great news.

I recently said goodbye to my Prestige card, but I had already used my travel credit for this year. If you haven’t, it just got way easier.

Citi furthermore announced that those who open or have opened new Citi credit card accounts eligible for a welcome bonus between December 1, 2019 and May 31, 2020 will have an additional three months to meet the spending requirements. Again, this only applies to new cardmember welcome bonuses, but it gives you additional time to meet the spend.

I don’t yet see a link to a press release on this, but we received this info from Citi’s PR arm, so I imagine we will see official communication coming soon on this.
