Citi Premier is now Citi Strata Premier

Citi recently announced updates to the Premier card - this has been an excellent complimentary choice for earning points along with most other point systems.  ThankYou points can be transferred to travel partners in the same way and have unique choices compared to the other programs.

New travel protection benefits include:

  • Trip cancellation and trip interruption
  • Trip Delay
  • Lost or Damaged Luggage
  • Primary Car Rental Coverage

Additional benefits:

  • 3x ThankYou points per dollar for EV charging
  • 10x points per dollar on hotels, car rentals, and attractions through the Citi portal

Travel Ahead

May is here!  I'm looking forward to finishing the semester and have a number of trips on the schedule through the summer.  Some highlights ahead:

- Memorial Day to Maine

- BachFest in Leipzig

- InfoComm 2024 

I'm also planning to be back in WI - will be fun to get together with family!
