Expedia+ Card from Citi review

Expedia+ Card from Citi

2.5 rating

Unless you’re already collecting Expedia+ points, the Expedia+ Card from Citi’s lower earn rate and restrictive redemption program mean you can likely get more value from other travel rewards cards, especially if you have excellent credit. This offer is no longer available on our site.
