Today Citi unveiled a series of music, sports, dining, comedy, theater and family experiences exclusively for Citi ThankYou cardmembers. As part of the new entertainment benefits of Citi ThankYou, Citi designed this special events lineup based on the interests of ThankYou cardmembers. Ranging from youth sports clinics to intimate culinary events, comedy shows and VIP concert access, these experiences are another example of how Citi is delivering more access to entertainment. Tickets to each special event can only be purchased with a Citi ThankYou card.
More Rewarding Entertainment for Citi ThankYou Cardmembers
The Citi ThankYou Preferred card now offers twice as many ThankYou Points for each dollar spent on both dining out and entertainment at no annual fee. ThankYou Points can be redeemed for a wide variety of rewards on thankyou.com like electronics and digital music downloads, and concert tickets on LiveNation.com. In addition, the Citi Private Pass entertainment access program offers Citi credit and Citibank debit card customers access to thousands of events including preferred seating, early access, VIP experiences, complimentary tickets and more.
“Our Citi Private Pass program rewards cardmembers by giving them more access to the entertainment they love and want, with thousands of events each year,” said Jennifer Breithaupt, SVP of Entertainment Marketing, Citi Cards. “We’re excited to introduce experiences curated exclusively for our Citi ThankYou cardmembers that give them special access to some of the best talent in music, sports, culinary, comedy and more.”
Citi is offering ThankYou cardmembers a variety of experiences for the entire family, including clinics where young sports fans can learn skills and sportsmanship from professional baseball, football and basketball players.
“Experiencing the energy and pure love for the game that young players bring to the field is always fun, and I’m looking forward to being out there, at Citi Field, and teaching the kids some of the fundamentals of the game,” said award-winning baseball slugger David Wright.
Added two-time championship MVP quarterback Eli Manning, “Growing up, football was a big part of our lives and brought not just fun and friendships, but an appreciation of sportsmanship on and off the field. It’s always great to expose kids to the game at an early age, and I am happy to be working with Citi at their clinic for young football fans.”
Experiences also include unique opportunities for cardmembers to enjoy popular music live. "I love introducing new music to my fans in an intimate setting,” said country music star Luke Bryan. “I'm really proud to work with Citi to create unique experiences for my fans."
