You can now use your Citi Rewards points to buy Amazon products.

Citi has kicked off this week with a new rewards relationship with Amazon.com. From today, Citi credit card customers who are enrolled in the Citi Rewards Program can use their reward points to pay for eligible purchases on Amazon.

If you’ve shopped on Amazon before, you’re probably aware that you can buy almost anything imaginable via its online store. This gives your Citi Rewards points extra flexibility, allowing you to redeem them for anything from books and homewares to fashion and tech gadgets. If you don’t have enough points to redeem your chosen reward or if you'd prefer to save some of them, you can also opt to use a combination of points and cash at the checkout.

While there are plans for Amazon Australia to launch in the near future, it’s important to note that Citi credit card holders can only use their points to redeem rewards from the US site for now.

Amazon joins an already extensive list of reward options for Citi Rewards members. You can also use your points to redeem products from the Citi Rewards store, gift cards, cashback and travel packages (just to name a few).

This collaboration with Amazon is just one of Citi’s many initiatives to remain increasingly relevant in the digital ecosystem, while offering cardholders the rewards they want.

“Whether it’s a complimentary bottle of wine when you dine with the Citi Dining Program or the chance to win tickets to the football, collaborations such as this one with Amazon allow us to reward our cardholders with offers and benefits that they value,” said Citi’s head of cards and consumer lending Alan Machet.

Citi Rewards cardholders in Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand can also redeem their points for Amazon rewards from today.
