I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
Citi Prestige offers 50,000 points after $3000 spend within 3 months (offer expired). It offers nearly identical spending bonuses — triple points on air and hotel and double points on dining and entertainment.
This is a $450 card, but gives you a $250 airline credit (which can be used on airfare, and earned twice during your first cardmember year if you apply now) and a $100 global entry credit. Points can be used to buy paid tickets on American at 1.6 cents apiece or transferred to miles with several airline programs.
Etihad First Class. This card’s points transfer directly to Etihad Guest, as well as programs like Singapore Airlines Krisflyer.
The card comes with American Airlines lounge access (when flying American) and a Priority Pass Select card (with unlimited visits and 2 free guests). And 3 free rounds of golf per year, too, and 4th night free on hotels.
Park Hyatt Buenos Aires — Why Not Get 4th Night Free?
The Citi Prestige Card‘s 4th night free benefit has even just been improved and this really is a killer benefit that can save you big money on hotel stays throughout the year.
Citi has changed the concierge company they use for their Prestige card (HT: One Mile at a Time), and that’s who helps you take advantage of the 4th hotel night free benefit that the card comes with. As a result the process is really streamlined. They’ve moved to Aspire Lifestyle Concierge from Ten Lifestyle Concierge. Here’s how the process works now:
- Call Aspire at 561-922-0158 and provide your first name, last name, and billing ZIP code
- Give them the name of the hotel you want to book, the dates of your stay, and the room type and rate you want them to book.
- The Aspire rep confirms the reservation details.
- You give your credit card and hotel loyalty program numbers and now the Aspire rep can keep these on file for you.
This makes calls quicker and easier with a single person handling your reservation in one shot. Within a few minutes of the call you get an email confirmation including how much reimbursement will be credited to your card for the fourth night (which should be the amount of the 4th night on the reservation including tax).

And the best part is that the change doesn’t appear to have any downsides: you can still book discounted prepaid rates and AAA rates and get your fourth night free with the card.
For those with a broader interest in Aspire as the card’s new concierge provider, they’ve got a concierge microsite.
