Yesterday I received an offer to earn a bonus of 2,500 Citi ThankYou Points for a relatively easy task.
All I need to do to earn the bonus is add an authorized user and spend $1,000.
While I love bonuses and free points, I can’t say that I am overly excited with this offer. You’re probably wondering why not! Well, there’s a couple of reasons!
First of all, I’d much prefer to put the $1,000 spend on another card which I am working on earning the sign-up bonus for. I recently received two new credit cards. I already completed the minimum spend on my JetBlue Plus card and I’m currently working on completing the min. spend on my United Explorer card.
Better Offers (I did not receive)!
While my offer is OK, the offer that Miles To Memories wrote about can be 2X as good. He reports there is an offer for 5,000 bonus points for spending $1,000 or $2,000!
Although I mentioned how I am not overly excited about this offer, I do have until 6/30/16 to complete the $1,000 spend to earn the 2,500 points bonus. I guess I’ll see if I get any other cards after I finish the min spend on my United card. If not, maybe I’ll add an authorized user and go for the bonus after all. The better odds are that I’ll have forgotten about this offer by then!
