The Citi Prestige Card’s 4th night free benefit gives you the 4th night free when you book a hotel room for at least 4 consecutive nights through thankyou.com or by phone at 1-800-THANK-YOU. You must pre-pay your reservation to qualify for the benefit. The cost of the 4th night is subtracted from the total amount due when you make your reservation, before you enter your payment information at thankyou.com.
The amount deducted will be based on the average nightly rate during your stay, minus taxes and fees. If you’re booking multiple rooms for your stay, the 4th night free offer only applies to one room. And booking 8 consecutive nights will not earn 2 free nights – Citi terms specify 1 free night per stay, and that also applies to back-to-back reservations at the same hotel.
Recently, Citi Prestige capped its cardholders at two free 4th nights per year, and removed the option to book fourth-night-free reservations through Citi Concierge. All bookings must now be done through thankyou.com. Reservations made through the Concierge before September 1, 2019 are not affected by the change, however.
When you book a hotel reservation through thankyou.com, you can use your Citi ThankYou rewards points alone or in combination with a credit card. For every $1 you spend on hotel reservations with Citi Prestige, you’ll earn 3 ThankYou points.
But it’s worth noting that booking through thankyou.com provides no opportunity to enter your hotel loyalty membership details, and thankyou.com is technically a third-party booking service. That makes 4th night free bookings not count toward some hotel loyalty programs that require booking directly through the hotel. And most hotel chains bar third-party bookings from counting toward elite status. You might try mentioning any loyalty program membership or elite status to the hotel when you arrive. They may choose to make your booking eligible for points, or at least provide membership benefits during your stay.
