Get bonus miles when you use Citi PayAll

Citibank running a PayAll promotion targeted at Citi Prestige cardholders, earn 1.6 mpd if you spend at least $15,000 through PayAll Citibank is running yet another promotion, this time targeted at Citi Prestige cardholders through their PayAll facility. To recap, Citi PayAll is a payment facility to payees who traditionally don’t accept credit card payments (such as private landlords, education institutions, income tax, etc). Citi charges a 2% fee for PayAll payments, so that effectively means that you are paying 2 cents per 1.3 miles (i.e. 1.54 cent per mile) earned on your Citi Prestige card. The promotion mechanism From 24 Feb to 31 Mar 2020, Citi Prestige cardholders can earn up to 11,000 additional miles on top of the usual 1.3 mpd when using the Citi PayAll facility.  There are simply two tiers: Spend $15,000, get an additional 4,500 miles, or Spend $30,000, get an additional 11,000 miles. Note that there’s a 2% fee on the PayAll facility, so to clock $15,000 or $30,000 spend, there will be a $300 or $600 fee respectively. The additional miles lowers to cost …

Cardholders now need to spend S$20,000 per quarter instead of S$1,500 for 2 rides. One of the best perks of the Citi Prestige will no longer be so valuable in future. The mid-tier card – which requires an annual income of S$120,000 in Singapore – has got some pretty strong benefits, including two free limousine transfers each quarter with a minimum spend of S$1,500 in foreign currency. This benefit will change from 1 April 2019, and cardholders will now need to spend a minimum of S$20,000 (local and foreign combined) each quarter to receive the same benefit. A 1333% increase on minimum spend is definitely not an enhancement (tsk tsk, Citibank), it’s definitely not the end of the world. So tell me why I should keep the card While the limo services will no longer be within reach by the bulk of the cardholders, the Citi Prestige card remains pretty competitive for its hotel travel perk. If you book four consecutive nights at the same hotel through the Citi Prestige Concierge, you will receive the last night complimentary with no black-out dates. This is a …
