And you're even.
I use the Priority Pass at airport restaurant/bar ($28 per visit) often so it's a net positive for me even without organic spend or other bonuses (like Paypal) and what Scubadu mentioned.
I would never trust Citi with $200k of my money to save $145 a year lol. Their website is already terrible enough.

Securities are handled by Pershing so I'm fine with that.

I had been getting these near continually, but they stopped maybe 4-5 months ago. The limit, at least for the ones I was receiving, was 2,500 points, not dollars. If you don't hit those limits, stocking up on Amazon (or other) gift cards from your supermarket is a good way to get 5% off there too!

This particular offer (5x at gas/supermarket/etc) seems to be targeted, and sent to you via mail - or at least that's how I've always got it. The mailer has a code that you enter on the website to activate it.

I've had my Prestige card for 9 years now because its always a net positive. $145 Citigold credit and $250 Airline credit. I spend a lot on dining and getting 5X on it is huge. I've only used the 4th night free a couple times because I prefer to use all points for my hotel stays. Retentions make it a no brainer as I've called every year and I get 10K-20K TYPs or $200 statement credit each time.

So apparently the Citi Premier card has been renamed to the Citi 'Strata' Premier card - and they have bought back some of the travel protections that they took away from that card a few years ago.

Will be interesting to see if they bring those some protections back to the Prestige card or not...

If you go to the Citi Strata Premier site and expand the list of Frequently Asked Questions, the last one is this:

Can I upgrade from the Citi Strata Premier℠ Card to the Citi Prestige Card?

To see if you are eligible to upgrade your Citi Strata Premier℠ Card to the Citi Prestige Card, please call the number on the back of your Citi Strata Premier℠ card.

A Citi spokesperson has reached out to let us know that the the FAQ question is an error. Citi Prestige is not open for acquisitions and Citi cardmembers cannot be upgraded into it.

I wonder what will happen to all the people applying for the Strata Premier only to be locked out of the Strata Prestige/Elite (if it ever appears) due to 48 month language rules.

Well, it would be no different than the people that get "locked" out of applying for one flavor of the Chase Sapphire if they have already had the other.

And yet, somehow the world continues to spin...

Maybe they would get an upgrade offer? I personally don't understand the logic behind "family of cards" restrictions. Why wouldn't Citi want me to hold both the Premier and Prestige? Sure, if I end up canceling one or even both, then lock me out of them for 48 months so I can't churn them (I don't). If I hold a Premier and that keeps me from getting a Prestige SUB, then I certainly won't want try it out to see if it might meet my needs better or be complimentary (or vice versa).

The FAQ item about upgrades was simply a left-over from the old Premier FAQ (and even there it was inaccurate).
