It has been the first year for this blog, but hopefully I will be able to keep it going for a while longer. It has been my first attempt at blogging, and there has been a lot to learn, and a lot of mistakes made. I am still trying to learn as much as I can, but as long as my daily average hits is in the area of 12-18 readers pr day I guess it will be a while longer before I can resign from my current job and become a full time traveler and blogger ;D
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.
I love this promotion, it is great to be able to check-in the baggage early, and then just take a taxi to the airport at the correct time, instead of wasting time with the family at the time of departure, often planning to arrive at the airport much earlier than needed to avoid any stress.
As a re-cap, here are the details of the promotion:
The idea of this promotion is to get people to arrive up to a day early at the airport, to check in their bags and get the boarding passes, before you can go home again and relax, and then come back to the airport for the normal time for departure, but skipping the queues at check-in.
It is not so common to see airlines giving out miles for free just to sign up to their frequent flyer program and their newsletter, but Airberlin is doing just that right now. You will get 1000 miles just for signing up with them and subscribing to their newsletter, and you can get an additional 1000 miles for each person you refer and sign up as well. (you get only 500 miles for your first referral, but 1000 miles for each extra referral thereafter.)
