Expert review

This introductory offer on the Citi Rewards card gives you a way to get a massive 40,000 bonus Flybuys points. Your everyday spending on this Mastercard also earns you 1 Citi Rewards point per $1 spent (capped at $10,000 per statement period for Australian spending). You can redeem these points for merchandise and gift cards through the Citi Rewards program or transfer them to a partner loyalty program – including Flybuys, Emirates Skywards and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer.

How to apply

You can apply for this offer online in around 15 minutes and you should receive a response in 60 seconds. Before you start the application, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements and have the necessary information on hand.

Eligibility criteria

  • Minimum income. You'll need to have an annual income of at least $35,000.
  • Residency. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Card benefits

  • Bonus Flybuys points. Earn 40,000 bonus Flybuys points when you apply for this card by 31 January 2023 and spend $3,000 on eligible purchases in the first 90 days from approval. Eligible purchases cover most everyday spending but exclude transactions including cash advances, balance transfers, refunds and spending on a linked Diners Club Card. Citi will request your Flybuys membership number from you by email within 8 weeks of meeting the spend criteria.
  • Reduced first year annual fee. Save with a $49 first-year annual fee ($149 thereafter).

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. Outside of any promotions, this card charges a $149 annual fee.
  • Purchase interest. If you do not pay your balance in full each statement period, your purchases will collect interest at the 21.49% p.a. interest rate. If you do pay your balance in full, you can take advantage of up to 55 interest-free days. Interest-free days don't apply if you're paying off a debt from a balance transfer.

    Hi, the T&C doesn’t stipulate whether a person, who held the same Citi Reward credit card in the past 12 months (or longer) is eligible or not. Without this being said in the T&Cs, am I correct to say that this condition doesn’t apply?

      Hi Kam Kit Adrian,
      Just because it’s not explicitly outlined in the T&Cs does not mean someone who held the card in the past 12 months would be eligible. It would be wise to call Citi at 1300 130 865 to double check. Typically you’d be eligible for the actual card itself, but not necessarily the bonus points. I hope that helps.
