» Citi Dividend Card users will get 5 Dividend Dollars (the one that gives you 5% cash back on gas, groceries, and drugstores).
» Cards with the ThankYou Network (such as the Citi Professional Card I have) will get 1,000 points
» All other Citi cards will get a $5 statement credit.
Technically, if you already have other ThankYou points, 1,000 points could be worth $10 towards a student loan or $10 in gift cards. The beauty is that you can do this with every Citibank card you have, as the terms say “one incentive reward per account number“. Since you have to make some sort of purchase, be careful not to spend too much just to get the $5. One option for pure profit is to try and buy a video clip for 99 cents or less and keep the difference.
However, if you are looking for a possible deal, here is a list of merchants offering a $10 off $20 purchase coupon (watch out for shipping charges) to combine with this offer. For more ideas see this FW thread.
Right now I’m still looking for the best deal, let me know what you buy!
Here are the complete terms for this promotion.
Added: Please note that the terms state “All statement credits, Dividend Dollars, and ThankYou Points will be posted 2-3 billing cycles after the promotional end date of September 15, 2006.”, so it’ll be a while before you see the bonus.
