Citi Will Count Dining and Groceries Towards The $250 Annual Travel Credit on the Prestige

If you have the Citi Prestige card, you get a $250 annual statement credit for anything travel. It’s normally super easy to use, but not as much when you can’t leave home. It runs on a calendar year schedule (as opposed to cardmember year).

To ensure you keep your card through this time, Citi will apply any dining and groceries to your $250 credit through 2021. I’ve previously confirmed that most food delivery services earn the 5X bonus points for dining, so those should work here as well.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

And just a quick note: If you have a Citi Prestige, have had it for more than 24 months and haven’t received any other ThankYou bonuses or closed any ThankYou cards in the last 24 months, you can add to your ThankYou balance with a new Citi Premier bonus (60,000 points).

Citi PremierCiti Premier Bonus Offer Get 60,000 Citi ThankYou points when you spend $4,000 in 3 months. Great for transferring to Turkish to book United flights within North America | How to apply for this offer.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
