1,000 Bonus Citi ThankYou Points for Linking to Amazon.com

If you have a Citi credit card that earns ThankYou points, you can get a 1,000 free ThankYou points for linking your Citi card with Amazon.com for future redemptions. Simply log into your account at ThankYou.com and go to Overview > My Account > Enter a Promotional Code and type in TYAMCAZON2 into the *bottom* Bonus Registration Code form field. You should see the following text:

Thank you. Your code has been submitted. You are ALMOST DONE! Now just click on “Continue” below (or go to amazon.com/citi) to link your ThankYou® and Amazon.com accounts. Offer expires at 11:59 PM ET on 6/30/2013 or until the first 20,000 members have linked-whichever comes first. Once you link, bonus points will be posted to your ThankYou account by July 10th 2013.

I’ll take the bonus points, but I won’t be using this rewards option as it only yields 0.8 cents per point. See previous post on the Best Value for Citi ThankYou Points Redemptions.

  1. Didn’t work for me :(

    ” You are not eligible for the promotional bonus at this time. “

  2. I tried this and the message I got was “You are not eligible for the promotional bonus at this time.” :-(

  3. Did you enter the code in the second box on the bottom under “Bonus Registration Code”, and not the top one?

  4. Worked for me. Any idea when bonus points will post?

  5. Guess I should have just kept reading about points posting by 10 July. Thanks for the notice on the offer, but sorry for being an idiot.

  6. Bingo! :-) Thanks so much Jonathan! I did enter the code in the top field (sheesh!). Works fine now and linked it to my Amazon account already!

  7. Just a note to other readers who are trying to follow this that you’re not quite “done” after clicking the Continue button. Once Amazon’s page pops up, you need to follow a few more instructions to actually link the credit card and Amazon together!

  8. Fellows:
    1. Use the code TYAMCAZON2 without the space as posted in the blog. Then it should work. I am web guy so I know that space is not trimmed sometimes. Its a bad code but …
    2. Speaking of which, apparently they have not tested it well. So while it says, that .. posted on July 10, after you have linked the card; Go back and now enter iteh same code in the PROMO code section for instant bonus – please dont abuse this like the google walltet.

  9. Thanks! The bonus posted for me just one day later… excellent :)

    (By the way, Citi’s CC and rewards sites are simply awful. They are slow to load, confusing, and always forget my login info. I had to spend about ten minutes to get this darn bonus to work in the first place :()

  10. BillyBob says:

    Me: was prompted to combine accounts before entering code following initial instructions and then “reader” instructions above. Got the accounts combined and got the points too.

    Wife: was not prompted to combine her two accounts. Ran through whole routine twice for her through Citi — got the bonus twice too.

    Lesson learned: points first, combine later.

  11. Is this just a one way deal with Citi or is there an additional benefit with Amazon? Thanks!
