EXPIRED This article relates to an offer or promotion which has now expired.
If you’re a Citi PremierMiles Visa cardholder in Singapore, the bank has a new promotion for you running until the end of March 2020. With an eligible spend of S$14,000 between now and then, you’ll qualify for 53,200 bonus miles upon payment of a one-off S$515 programme fee.
That’s the equivalent of buying miles for a fantastic 0.97 cents each, transferable into 11 frequent flyer programmes.
If S$14k sounds a bit much to be spending in the next couple of months, there’s an alternative deal for 21,000 bonus miles if you manage to spend S$7,500 in the same period, for a reduced fee of S$215 – still a great deal buying miles at 1.02 cents each.
Citi ran similar offers for PremierMiles cardholders in July 2017, where you could buy miles for just 0.76 cents each (how we wish to see that again), and also around a year ago where the cost was slightly higher at 1.02 cents per mile.
The most recent similar deal from the bank was actually for Citi Prestige members running in late 2019, though interestingly that one came in with the highest cost per mile so far of 1.15 cents each.
Who is eligible?
You must have held your Citi PremierMiles Visa card as the main cardholder for at least six months prior to the commencement of the promotion period (i.e. since 20th July 2019 or before). New cardholders are not eligible for the offer.
You must also enrol for the promotion by sending an SMS to Citi as follows, and receiving the automated acknowledgement.
