This is the second most exciting part of the travel festival for me, VISA is offering 15% on all tickets booked with Qatar Airways during the travel festival, provided you pay for the ticket with a VISA credit card.
The amount of money you can save on this is alone enough to pay the annual fee on any VISA credit card, so if you don’t have one you are loosing out big time. To apply for a VISA credit card from CitiBank (my favorite way of earning miles with Qatar Airways), click here.
Citibank is now offering up to 600 dirhams cashbak if you apply for any of their credit cards online.
The only requirement for getting the cashback is that you have to spend at least 5000 dirhams on the creditcard to get 300 dirhams statement credit, or 10000 dirhams to get 600 dirhams credited back to your account. This means up to 6% back on your spends for the first 10.000 dirhams you spend on the card, a better deal than most deals you can find out there right now.
The promotion seems to be valid for a selection of CitiBanks Credit Cards, my favorite that I am currently using myself is the Premier Miles, where you earn Citi miles on all your spends, which you can then credit to any airline program you choose (Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways and many others) at a 1:1 ratio, making it an excellent currency if you are not particularly loyal to just one of them.
If you are a holder of a Citi Bank Premiermiles Creditcard, all you have to do is SMS ‘FLY’ to 2484, and every time you use your card on either purchases in foreign currency or travel bookings you get one entry for a chance to win 5000 dirhams. Terms and conditions apparently applies, but I could not find any, if you find any please let me know!
