The Bottom Line

The Citi ThankYou Premier Card has everything you could want in a travel rewards credit card. A nice sign up bonus, great ongoing rewards, and flexixable points redemptions.

The Good

With 3x ThankYou points on Travel, including gas, and 2x points on Dining and Entertainment, the Citi ThankYou premier has one of the most generous ongoing rewards programs.

The Not so Good

The 30,000 ThankYou point sign up bonus is a bit lower than some of it's competitors. Also, there's a $95 annual fee, but waived the first year.
