Get 2 Free Airline Tickets with Citibank

Category: Bank Deals- gotalkmoney.com- 3:36 pm/ February 28, 2008

If you’re looking to take a free vacation in the upcoming months and you have $25,000 to spare, you are in luck!  Citibank currently has a promotion going where you can get 2 free round trip airline tickets when you deposit $25,000 in a new or existing Citibank money market account.

Below are some noted details from their website –

Open a new qualifying Citibank checking account with a minimum deposit of $1,000, enroll it in ThankYou Network and make one direct deposit to or two electronic bill payments from the checking account each month for three consecutive months. 

When you make the deposit, customers will then get up to 40,000 ThankYou points, which can be redeemable for two round trip airline tickets in the continental U.S.  These tickets are valued at $400.


This deal is only available at their brick at mortar stores.  This means you’ll have to visit a local Citibank Financial Center.

I did go into a center near me and they pointed me to a press release and gave me a flyer with more information.


If you would like more information, visit their official website or call 1-800-374-9700


If you would like to make the most out of this deal, I would recommend signing up for an airline credit card along with this deal.  A lot of the times you can get another free ticket just for signing up.  This will leave you with 3 free tickets at no cost to you!

Best Cash Back Credit Card on the Market

Category: Misc. Deals- gotalkmoney.com- 3:50 pm/ February 27, 2008

If you’re currently in the hunt for a credit card, especially one that gives you cash back, I found a great credit card on the market that gives you 5% cash back for the first 3 months!  This is by far one of the best deals on the market.

If you’re thinking about applying for this card, it would be ideal to apply when you’re going to make a big purchase such as a boat, etc.  This way when you make your purchase, you’ll receive an additional 5% off.  I spoke with customer service and checked a few forums and they said there is no limit for cash back purchases but some people said that there may be a conflict when you make a purchase of 100k or more.

Apply and check out the application page.
