In April this year it was the UOB PRVI Miles cards cutting the income requirement for their trio of cards to $30k per year. Well today Citi have followed suit confirming that the annual income threshold for Citi PremierMiles Visa card applicants has also been reduced from $50k to $30k, making this card significantly more accessible.
$30k income requirement cards
The addition of the Citi PremierMiles Visa card into the $30k annual income requirement category is of course welcome news for many. It now means the following miles earning cards fall into this category:
- Amex Rewards Card
- Amex Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer (see our review)
- Citi PremierMiles Visa (see our review)
- Citi Rewards Visa / MasterCard (see our review)
- DBS Altitude (see our review)
- DBS Woman’s Card
- HSBC Revolution Visa
- OCBC Titanium Rewards MasterCard (see our review)
- Standard Chartered Rewards + Visa
- UOB Preferred Platinum Visa
- UOB PRVI Miles (see our review)
Note that the Citi PremierMiles American Express card retains its $80,000 annual income requirement.
No sign-up bonus
If you were hoping Citi would announce a new sign-up bonus for the PremierMiles card in tandem with this eligibility enhancement, unfortunately they haven’t done so. We’re still waiting for a new welcome bonus for this card since the 30,000 miles bonus offer ended in March.
A new dining privileges category was added to the PremierMiles Visa card today though, with a single restaurant participating.
Full details of that offer can be found on the Citi PremierMiles card landing page.
If you’re looking for a $30,000 income requirement card with a good sign-up bonus don’t forget our article last week detailing the KrisFlyer Amex 25,000 miles bonus.
The Citi PremierMiles Visa earns 1.2 miles for every $1 spent locally (i.e. transacted in SGD), and 2.0 miles for every $1 spent overseas (i.e. transacted in foreign currency). Citi Miles also never expire.
Citi has one of the widest ranges of frequent flyer programs for you to transfer your points into, including British Airways, Qatar Airways, Thai and Qantas, making these very flexible points to accrue. See our full review for more details, including a full list of transfer partners.
