Citi offering 2x PremierMiles on International Spends

You know it only too well. I love PremierMiles. There are at lease 2-3 times promotional spending periods during a year, and even otherwise I earn 10 miles per INR 100 on airline spends, and 4 miles per INR 100 spend on every other spend. The last time they offered double miles, I went home with another 50K extra miles since I figured in their top 5000 spenders. Each mile converts into one airline mile with 9 FFPs, or also converts with 3 hotel partners. I’d really like them to add Starwood and Hyatt to the list of hotel partners, but overall, it is a lovely card from my perspective.

Now, they are back with an International spends promotion. Something they did 2 years back in 2012. However, this time the terms are different. Then, they offered a straight 10 miles per INR 100 spent internationally on the card.

Now, they are offering 2x PremierMiles, up to a maximum of 25000 bonus PremierMiles, for international spends done between May 1, 2014 to June 30, 2014. The extra bonus miles will be credited to your account by 31 August 2014. This promotion means if you book airline tickets in International Currencies on your PremierMiles cards, you get 20 PM per INR 100 instead of 10 PM per INR 100, and for other spends you get 8 PM per INR 100.


You need to register for the promotion here, to be able to earn these miles, before May 31, 2014. If you register, all your Foreign Currency spend between May 1 and June 30 will be considered. My advice is to do it now!! If you have multiple PremierMiles cards, you can earn miles on all of them, but you need to register them separately. Here are the detailed Terms & Conditions [PDF].

And if you don’t have a Citibank PremierMiles Credit Card, you might just want to pick up one using my referral link in the coming days. You get 10000 PremierMiles for your first transaction of INR 1000+ for the first year.

  1. Hi AJ

    I hold an Ultima card – which offers 5 miles to every 1 point. Now here is the catch, they offer only 1 point for every 125 rupees, so it works to be the same.

    In any case my question to you is I have 30,000 miles that I can transfer. Where do you think I should put it to get max bang for the buck?

    Thanks a lot for your help! I applied for the premier miles card in any case 🙂

  2. Toady I spent Rs 99512/- on for buying International Air Ticket. Am I eligible for 2X Premiermiles? Please note I paid in INR.

  3. Hi AJ, how many days did they take to process and ship your citibank card? I’ll be travelling to US on 25th and want to get it before that. Will ensure to use your referral link..
