Usually whenever you add an authorized user to your credit card, there isn’t any sort of bonus. What’s worse, is that if you have a premium travel card, there will usually be a hefty fee for doing so. From time to time though, some credit institutions offer a bonus for adding an authorized user to your credit card, and this is exactly what Citi is doing.
There are offers for multiple Citi cards. Both cards have offers that are available from May 1st to June 30th. Keep in mind, they are targeted offers, so be sure to check those email inboxes!
Citi ThankYou Preferred
The offer on the ThankYou Preferred is for earning 2,500 when either you or the authorized user spends $2,000. You’ll have until the end of June 30th to spend the $2,000.
Citi ThankYou Premier
Just like the ThankYou Preferred, the Citi ThankYou Premier will also offer you 2,500 ThankYou points when you and/or your authorized user spend $2,000. You’ll have until the end of June 30th to spend the $2,000
When it comes down to it, this isn’t too many points. However, typically there aren’t any bonuses for adding an authorized user to your credit card, so I can’t complain too much. If you have any reason to add an authorized user to either a ThankYou Preferred or Premier credit card, then this would be the time to do so. Just keep in mind that these are targeted offers, so double check those email inboxes.
