PremierMiles ties up with GoIbibo, adds more partners

I’ve not exactly been up to speed with updating the blog most of last week, since I’ve been all over the place trying to get a few things closed out. But we are back to bringing you the latest and greatest from the Indian points & miles space. Last week, the Citibank PremierMiles website underwent a refresh.

Like I wrote earlier, this was going to be a likely switch to GoIbibo as their partner online travel agent to power the website. This is now done, and you can earn accelerated miles on Citibank’s PremierMiles website, or on GoIbibo.com or on Yatra.com using your Citibank PremierMiles credit card.

With this, there are expectations that did not work out. If you were frustrated with the process to burn your PremierMiles on Jet Airways, you still have to carry on with the process, because queries made using the PremierMiles website still don’t show Jet Airways or JetKonnect flight options. Not that this is great value, but there are people who prefer to use their miles on these trips. Have a look at the same query using PremierMiles and GoIbibo’s own website. If you notice the left hand side bar, on the PremierMiles website Jet Airways does not show up while it does on the GoIbibo website below.

On the other hand, there are many more new partners which are being added to earn the accelerated miles of 10 miles / Rs. 100 spend with Citibank PremierMiles. You can always look up the updated list here, but here are some new additions to name a few:

There are a lot of other partners as well, right from Raymonds for suits to Jabong for online shopping.
