The previous 100k bonus Velocity points offer for the Citi Rewards credit card has ended. It's been replaced by a new offer:

  • Spend at least $3,000 on eligible purchases within 90 days to earn 80,000 Velocity points
  • Renew the card for a second year to get a further 70,000 bonus Velocity points
Annual fee is $99 in the first year, $199 in subsequent years. Offer expires 31 January 2022.

Applied and received approval within a few days. Plan to just meet minimum spend to recieve the 80K then put the card on the shelf until next year for the additional 70K Velocity points.

Not sure what Velocity will have on the table when they announce their new partner airlines but after directing everything towards QFF since the Virgin halt I'm getting the urge to add to my smallish stash in anticipation of something worthwhile.

Also requested the additional dinners club card. l need to see if it is worthwhile and how to best utilise it. Possibly it will be worthwhile for overseas spend instead of my ANZ Travel Adventures card. Not sure how much acceptance they have.

This will be next on my list. (Recently signed up to St George amplify first.)

How quickly does the first batch of points land? Is it as soon as spend is earnt or after the 3 months?

They send you an email requesting you VFF number once you reach your minimum spend. My email came after a few weeks of spend. Then the T&C's state up to 10 weeks from when they receive your number for the BP's to post. I have been waiting around 4 weeks so far.

My experience with Citi is they ofter miss their mark. I have benefited with requested compensation quite a few times so I am hoping that their form stays the same.

I got knocked back by this card. No idea why. Maybe the new house loan was too much risk for them. We can definitely afford a card. I will close our Qantas premier card and give it a little bit before applying for something else, that may help as it'll reduce the credit card limit.

Citi is a pain to apply for and get approved. A lot of people are once bitten forever shy.

I think others have posted here that no 12 mth exclusion. One of the few cards out there.
Can anyone confirm that there is similarly no exclusionary period on the Citi Premier Qantas card? I can't see any reference to one in the T&Cs, which makes this a pretty good deal for me to retain Points Club Plus.
