I called up to arrange for the free hotel stay (DOM this time - MEL).
Max value is now set at $237.00
Anything else more than that, you have to pay for.
Well, the citibank website does not say that at all.
One Complimentary Hotel Stay[SUP]1[/SUP]
Enjoy one complimentary night accommodation per year, at your hotel of choice from a range of over 50 premium hotels worldwide. Use the complimentary night on it's own or as part of a longer stay at your selected hotel.
It is rather an underwhelming experience for a supposedly premium card.
Sorry, Citibank !
You are doing well to alienate me.
EDIT: Stayed in Paris last year, totally free for a 4* hotel
Wow! That's interesting that they cap it at $237 because on their website under Citi Select credit card they have a "Value" tab that estimates the hotel stay at $350!

So somehow that doesn't add up, does it?
