Lots of miles and status to come with Citi Prestige in India

A couple of weeks back I wrote about the Citibank Prestige Credit Card, which I expect to be offered by Citibank as a replacement to the Ultima as of April 2014. There are a lot more signup benefits which will be on their way, and some of them are enlisted below:

  • Etihad Gold: The cardholder will be eligible for Etihad’s Gold Status, which allows for 50% bonus miles and business class lounge access.
  • Miles on signup: You’ll get 5000 Etihad miles on sign-up for the card and 5000 Avios.
  • BA Executive Club: Possibly, you’ll also get a one-tier upgrade on the BA Executive Club membership. So, if you’re base tier, you’d be upgraded to Bronze.

Additionally, there will be discounts and tie-ups with HHonors, Shangri-La, Hertz and many other tie-ups. I’ve already written about the Hilton HHonors Gold Status and Taj Gold that will come along with this card as well. Overall, a solid package I believe when it hits the market in a few days from now.
