MyCardBlog points to a Citibank offer of 6000 free Thank You points. This appears to work for anyone with a Citi checking or savings account. (If you aren’t enrolled in Thank You Points, they’ll enroll you.)
Here’s the offer they reproduce:
We’d like to take the opportunity to show our appreciation for your business with a $50 gift card, redeemable with 6,000 thankyou points. If you’re not currently a ThankYou member, we’ll enroll you so you will get the points. Just give us a call!
We can talk about as much or as little as you like. Mostly we’re just looking to know what we can do to make your banking life easier. No matter what, your time will be well spent. (Of course, what you do with the $50 gift card is entirely up to you.)
The instructions, per MyCardBlog:
Call Citi at 1-866-422-1443 by 08/08/08 and mention code ATTS. After some short questions (less than 2 mins), you can get 6,000 thankyou points in your account at thankyou network in 90 days.
First, the questions are really just identifying you and they aren’t a survey, it’s more customer service soft-sell. They’re going to ask you whether you’d like any other accounts, e.g. whether I wanted a savings account. Then they asked if there was anything else they could do for me. And they promised me the points within 90 days.
Second, you should never use 6000 points for a $50 gift certificate. If you have an eligible account for fixed point redemption (and you should — get an Expedia Thank You Points account and combine your accounts into that one) you can get 3 cents a point in value.
Frugal Travel Guy mentions this offer as well.
