Citi ThankYou Preferred card review

Citi ThankYou Preferred card

2.5 rating

The Citi ThankYou Preferred card is a fair travel rewards card, offering a good return on dining out and entertainment, an average though not stellar  value on travel redemptions, and decent travel benefits, such as worldwide car rental insurance. However, it lacks a sign-up bonus and is missing out on key travel features  such as no foreign transaction fee that can be found on premium rewards cards as well as some no-annual-fee cards.
