Citi Offers For You
Back in November of last year I covered Citi’s new Smart Savings cashback program. It works sort of like Amex Offers or Bank Amerideals. You load the offer, make a purchase and receive a credit back on your statement. You can find out how to search and load the offers here.
Expanded to More Cards
At the time of the launch the offers were only available on a small amount of accounts. For example, between my wife and I we only had one card with offers. Thankfully it does seem like the program has been rolled out to even more cards now. While only ThankYou point earning cards seem to have this program (at least for us), we are up to three cards with the offers available.
In addition to getting the offers on more cards, there are a lot more offers than before. For example, here is what is currently available for me:
Earn 10% Back
- Hampton Inn
- Big 5 Sporting Goods
- Red Robin
- Chuck E. Cheese’s
- Edible Arrangements
- Bubba Gump
- Il Fornaio
- Janie and Jack
Earn 5% Back
- Carl’s Jr.
Earn $2.50 Cash
As you can tell many of these offers aren’t terribly great, but it is nice to see Citi investing some resources into getting merchants to participate. Many of the brands above have discounted gift cards for sale, so I would always check that avenue first to see what makes sense.
While Citi’s Smart Savings cash back offer program still isn’t great, it is nice to see it being rolled out to more cards and to see even more offers available. While I won’t obsessively check for new offers, seeing them expand the program is a good reminder that I should poke in my accounts every so often to see what is available.
