Post Citi Hunting for Concierge Improvement Ideas. Possible Re-entry to premium card soon?

The website whichcardtoget has reported that Citi is actively hunting for ideas on how can they improve their concierge hunting. The DOC post has comment which takes to the page with detailed news. But it does seem like Citi is exploring seriously re-entry to the Premium card market after their discontinuation of Prestige card and after Capital One created strong ripple with Venture X. The rumors have just seem to have become more serious. I hope Citi actually goes through with this instead of exploring and then abandoning the idea as the premium card market does need more competition. What are your observations? Does this carry any weight or simply just fuel to the fire of rumors?

Looks like we will see the Strata Premier at least in a few days.

And some travel insurance, it seems?

I have the current Premier and was thinking of canceling it before it renews in July. Wondering if I should accelerate that plan. But then I also need to do something with my 100k TYP.

Hmm…DoC reports:
  • 75,000 points after $4,000 in spend within the first three months
    • Bonus ThankYou Points are not available if you have received a new account bonus for a Citi Premier or a Citi Strata Premier ℠ account in the past 48 months.
https://www.doctorofcredit.com/citi-...now-available/

Since I got my current Premier card about two years ago, I won’t be able to get a new bonus.

Wonder if the Strata Elite is still on the roadmap. Has Citi ever offered upgrade bonuses?

Citi has converted (renamed?) Premier accounts to Strata Premier accounts.



Card is now live on Citi site.

https://www.citi.com/credit-cards/ci...er-credit-card

Perhaps it’s time for a new thread … or a rename of the old Premier thread?

Citi Premier MasterCard (60,000 points for $4,000 spend in 3 months)
