Just be aware Citi has one of the most insanely strict rules on being excluded for sign up bonuses of any of the major card companies.



Bonus ThankYou Points are not available if you have had a ThankYou Preferred, ThankYou Premier or Citi Prestige card opened or closed in the past 24 months.

That's actually one of the least restrictive rules. Chase won't give you any points if you've opened 5 cards with anyone over the past 2 years, and Amex won't give you points if you've ever had the card before.

Actually, chase won't give you the card in that case. Has nothing to do with the bonus.



Their rule for bonus qualifications is much less restrictive than Citi. You can't have gotten a bonus for that specific card in the last 24 months.

As opposed to Citi who will deny the bonus just because you opened or closed a different card that's on the same type of point system anytime in the last 24 months.


Citis rule makes it a trap to take a signup bonus for a card with an annual fee, since you'll be stuck paying the fee the following year or two unless you want to reset your 24 month clock.

It also means you can only get one bonus of that type per 24 months- because once you open the first card you just reset your clock and can't get another for 2 years.

With Chase you can get five bonuses in 24 months. Actually more like 8 because business cards don't count toward the 5. The key is you start with the chase cards so you're at 0/24 when you begin.



If you are still confused on this:


let's say I've opened nothing with anyone in the last 2 years.


With Citi I can sign up for ONE thankyou point bonus on one card. Then I can't get another for 24 months. And only if I don't close the first one in that time. Meaning I can earn basically ONE TU bonus per 24 months, or about 50,000 points every 24 months.


With Chase I can sign up for all six Ultimate Rewards point bonuses on 6 different cards (ink prefered, ink cash, CSR, CSP, Freedom, Freedom Unlimited) within a few months, and earn all those bonuses. Meaning 6 UR bonuses per 24 months, or about 235,000 UR points every 24 months. 4.5 times the points, and more valuable points too.

Then 24 months later do it again- regardless of how soon I close or downgrade any of them to avoid annual fees.



Tell me again how chase is more restrictive?

Yeah, don't listen to that guy. He is always wrong about pretty much anything.

Not true, at least in my case. They were happy to give me the Sapphire reserve, just not the bonus.

That makes literally no sense. You must have misunderstood something (or got a BS answer from a rep who didn't understand something)



The bonus on the CSR has nothing to do with how many cards you have opened.


The only thing that disqualifies you from Chase bonuses is having gotten a bonus on the same card within the last 24 months.

(which is longer than the CSR has even existed BTW)


Example of actual wording from Chase card offer:

Quote from Chase :
new card member offer is not available to: current card members of this consumer credit card or previous card members of this consumer card who received a new card member bonus within the last 24 months
No mention of 5/24 stuff, because that has nothing whatsoever to do with bonus eligibility, just card eligibility.... (and even then preapprovals bypass that)

Much like Chase UR or Amex MR there's a whole ton of things you can do with them, of varying amounts of redemption value.

Card statements, gift cards, amazon shopping, buying travel, transfering to partners, etc.

Overall these are considered the least valuable of the "flexibile" point systems (UR, MR, TU, and SPG) as they have the fewest transfer partners.

Also the value of redemptions can vary based on what Citi cards you might have (similar to the chase system where points can be worth more if you have certain cards)
