In what’s almost become a year-round offer, Citi has once again extended the sign-up bonus for its PremierMiles Visa card in Singapore to 31st July 2019.
There are three sign-up offers in total, depending on whether you are an existing Citi credit card customer or not, and whether you wish to pay the first year annual fee.
This extension to the deal gives both brand new customers, and former cardholders who have now exceeded 12 months without a Citi credit card, the opportunity to secure the main 21,000-mile sign-up bonus with a spend of S$7,500 in the first three months.
Here are the full details of the sign-up bonus options for the Citi PremierMiles Visa card, for applications by 31st July 2019.
The main offer – 21,000 miles bonus:
Provided you don’t currently hold a Citi credit card and haven’t held one in the last 12 months, you’ll be eligible for a bonus of 21,000 miles, subject to having S$7,500 of spending to do from the approval date until the end of the third full calendar month, not including the calendar month of card approval.
For example, if you are approved for the card on 8th July 2019, the qualifying spend period is from that date until 31st October 2019 (three full calendar months from the 1st August 2019).
It is subject to payment of the annual fee, which is S$192.60.
As usual, Citi sells this 21,000 miles bonus as a 30,000 miles one, because they include the miles you would earn anyway for spending S$7,500 locally at the 1.2 miles per dollar rate.
Those 9,000 miles aren’t part of the bonus because you would receive them if you spent that amount on the card without a sign-up bonus even running, and we would argue you should be earning more than that anyway with a card like the
