Our verdict

Offers a big $750 Luxury Escapes Gift Card and a $150 first-year annual fee, but watch out for the annual fee requirements after that.

The Citi Premier is a top-level credit card that has flexible reward points and perks including Priority Pass airport lounge access and complimentary insurance. With this introductory offer, you’ll get a $750 Luxury Escapes Gift Card when you apply and spend at least $7,000 on eligible purchases in the first 3 months from approval. This is a relatively high spend requirement compared to other rewards credit cards, including the spend requirement on this card’s $600 cashback offer (but that one does require you to spend with an eligible digital wallet).
