A few months back, we heard that Citi wants to make some changes to the Premier card. While it looks like not all of the changes have been implemented just yet, it seems the most useful changes are now live.
Citi Premier was set to add 3x to both supermarkets and restaurants. This change was set to happen on August 23rd, however, it is live as of June 2nd. It looks as though only the these two changes have been implemented, not the travel benefits or other bonuses.
I would imagine these changes were expedited due to the lockdowns. These categories are great for perfect for anyone locked in at home, or even for those that want to grab some takeout. It makes perfect sense from Citi’s point of view to speed up the implementation. I’m curious as to why they didn’t just go ahead and make all of the changes live, because why not? If they’re already going through the effort of making these changes, you might as well go all out, right?
At least they got the most useful benefits out. I would imagine that come August 23rd, the other benefits will be live as well.
Have you used these benefits? Let us know down in the comment section below.
