Expert review

The Citi Rewards Credit Card gives you a flexible rewards program and a one-off boost to your Velocity Frequent Flyer balance. To give you an idea of the value of the bonus Velocity Points, you could use them for a return business class flight from Sydney to Perth or from Melbourne to Auckland (both from 71,000 points). If you want to save up points for a future trip overseas, they’d also get you a one-way business class flight from Sydney to Los Angeles (from 95,500 points).
