New Citi Offers and a SimplyMiles offer for Viator reappeared recently which means it should be possible to get a triple stack when booking activities that can make for a very good return.

Viator Citi Offer Spend $150 Get $20 06.30.23

Quick Thoughts

There are at least two versions of the Viator Citi Offer. A couple of my Citi cards have an offer giving $10 back when spending $150, while another card has an offer giving $20 back.

SimplyMiles offers are targeted too. My account has the offer mentioned above which gives 465 bonus AAdvantage miles and 465 Loyalty Points when spending $150, whereas my wife’s SimplyMiles account wasn’t targeted.

Something worth noting is that the terms for both the Citi Offers and SimplyMiles offer state that the “Offer cannot be used in conjunction with another loyalty offering.” That makes it sound like you can only earn with one or the other, but I’m not convinced that they’re going to pull a Motley Fool and try to enforce that. It’s up to you if you want to risk that though.

The third element of the triple stack is shopping portal cashback/rewards. Rakuten recently offered 15x on Viator bookings, but that’s since dropped to a still-generous 9x. At the time of publishing this post, the American Airlines shopping portal is also offering 9x which might be preferable for some seeing as it means you’ll also earn 9x Loyalty Points on the purchase. You can compare the various shopping portal options here; due to the way different portals list Viator, there are four different comparison pages on Cashback Monitor for the US-based Viator site.

Update: Nick has a targeted offer for 30% cashback from Capital One Shopping for Viator bookings. If you’re planning on booking activities but don’t need to do that immediately, browse Viator while having the Capital One Shopping browser extension installed and you’ll hopefully get a similar offer within a couple of days.

Thanks for the heads up, Stephen! Going to use this for an upcoming Europe trip.

FYI, I got targeted for 930 miles on $150 spend on Simply Miles.


I am hoping the collective knowledge and experience of FM can answer these questions:

  1. The deal says it is only valid for “spend settled in United States Dollars (USD) on the Card.” When I look up experiences for foreign countries, they tend to be listed in USD. Will these actually charge in USD? And the charge will be from Viator in the US? Some of my Citi cards have foreign transaction fees, so I obviously would want to avoid that.
  2. Viator is considered a travel agency (so would get 5x potentially on the Prestige/Custom Cash, or 3x on Premier), correct?

Just adding some follow-up data points. I ended up booking a Viator experience for New Zealand. It did charge through the US (so no foreign transaction fee concern). It did receive the travel agency multiplier from Citi.

With SimplyMiles, I received several emails indicating I could add an offer for 930 miles for $150 spend. I would click the button to add, which took me to the SimplyMiles website, where no such offer was available for my account. I have never seen that before.

I also received 12x on Rakuten and 70 points/$ on Drop (essentially 7 cents/$).
