For a limited time, CitiBank has increased their credit card rewards geared toward students. As part of a college campaign for this upcoming fall, all the rewards affiliated with each card have doubled. Let’s take a look at we’re getting –
Earn 10 ThankYou® Pointson every dollar spent at restaurants (including fast food), bookstores, record stores, movie theaters and video rental stores for the first 3 months, 5 ThankYou Points per every dollar spent thereafter.
Redeem your points for great rewards like gift cards, merchandise, travel and exclusive tickets to events including the mtvU Woodie Awards.
If you’re not familiar with the Citibank Thank You Network, it’s really one of the best reward programs in the business. They have just about every reward imaginable and the rewards add up fairly quick. For example, 1,000 points can get you a $5 Best Buy gift card. As mentioned above, for every dollar you spend, you can get up to 10 points for three months, this is a deal that all students should look into. If you spend $100 on participating purchases, you can get that $5 gift card fairly fast. Just remember to pay the bill off in full on time! If this sounds like something you’d like to look at, view the secured application.
If the point system doesn’t sound like something that you’re a fan of, try considering a cash back student credit card. For the first three months you can get up to 10% cash back!
Earn 10% cash back on purchases at supermarkets, drugstores, gas stations, utilities and more for the first 3 months, 2% thereafter.1
The cash back system works a little differently than the point based card. Instead of the points to buy gift cards, etc, you’re going to get cash back instead. You’ll be able to either get it as a statement credit or you can get it mailed via a check. Please refer to the terms and conditions regarding CitiBank’s cash back system. If a cash back student card sounds better, be sure to check out the secured application.
Besides the cash back and point based system, you’re also going to get the following as well –
- No annual fee
- 0% intro APR for 6 months on purchases, balance transfers, and cash advances*
- You can set your own billing dates and get credit limit alerts
