Citi adjusts hotel benefits for PremierMiles cardholders

More tweaks to Citi cards in Singapore are coming next month, but first some hotel benefit changes on the PremierMiles cards

If you hold the Citi PremierMiles Visa or Amex card in Singapore you may be familiar with a number of hotel benefits available through these cards. Last week Citi tweaked a couple of the deals and here’s what you need to know about the changes.


The Agoda deal with Citi PremierMiles formerly offered 7 bonus miles per S$1 spent on hotel bookings, subject to some conditions. There’s a continuous play on words here though. It was originally labelled the 9 miles per S$1 offer, which was a bit cheeky as that was the best-case scenario if your booking was made in a foreign currency and included the 2 miles per S$1 you would earn for any transaction in this case.

We first wrote about the offer in April when it was launched as the “up to 9 miles per S$1” promotion. Then in May they extended it by 7 months to the end of 2018, under the “7 bonus miles per S$1 spent” banner.

The good news is that this deal has been extended again, though just by 1 month, and will now apply to bookings made until 31st January 2019, for stays until 31st July 2019.

The bad news is the deal has changed title again and is now the “up to 7 bonus miles per S$1 spent” offer, meaning you’ll actually only receive 5 bonus miles per S$1 spent over and above the regular earn rate based on the card and transaction currency.
