Citibank have launched a limited time offer for their PremierMiles Visa and American Express card holders which offers up to 9 miles per S$1 spent on hotel bookings made between now and 15th May 2018, for stays between now and 31st July 2018.
That’s 2 miles per S$1 more than their regular Agoda promotion rate. Miles are awarded as Citi Miles, which convert 1:1 into a variety of airline frequent flyer programs including KrisFlyer, Asia Miles and Avios.
The bonus rate is made up of two components, a 7 miles per S$1 booking bonus plus the regular base earn rate applicable to your card for the transaction type. That means you’ll get:
- 8.2 miles per S$1 for a booking paid in SGD with the Citi PremierMiles Visa
- 8.3 miles per S$1 for a booking paid in SGD with the Citi PremierMiles Amex
- 9.0 miles per S$1 for a booking paid in foreign currency with either card
The bonus points will be credited within 2 months of checking out from the hotel. Only pre-paid rates are applicable, where the payment is made directly to Agoda, so this won’t work for rates where you pay directly at the hotel.
Taxes and service charges are included in the total cost assessed for the bonus but no other incidental room expenses will qualify. The full terms and conditions can be found here.
How to book
Bookings must be made via the dedicated landing page: www.agoda.com/bonusmiles
Payment must be made using your Citi PremierMiles Visa or Citi PremierMiles Amex card to qualify for the bonus points.
Check Kaligo first
Citi have an ongoing bonus miles relationship with hotel booking site Kaligo, offering 10 miles per S$1 spent as standard. That might work out better than this offer, depending on your choice of hotel and the rates available, so remember to check Kaligo first before committing to the Agoda deal.
There’s also a bonus offer running for crediting to KrisFlyer miles directly from Kaligo, if your stay meets higher spend thresholds.
Always remember the golden rule – check the best available rate directly with the hotel of your choice and other online travel agents like Expedia, as you may find you are paying more to accrue miles with these other sites and the cost per mile must be justifiable.
