They have devalued all the credit cards including premier miles. 1 premier miles was equal to 50p before but now it is 45p. I don’t know if it worth paying 3k+ taxes per year as annual fees for this card.

Thanks Dan. Done with it. https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif
I have Citibank Rewards Card and Indian Oil Citibank Credit Card but now using only Indian Oil card much as it is still beneficial for taking petrol. 1 point value on the petrol is still equal to 1 Rs. https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

I was transferred over from the Jet Airways card, so my annual fee is only 1K on the Premier Miles card. But this devaluation of miles is going to hurt me bad. They will also change the very attractive 30% fixed interest to a variable one. The policy change for the Premier Miles card will be effective from February 1, 2015 so we still have some time to protest.

I hope there is a big uproar so Citibank ends up retracting this disastrous policy change. I have already made my opinions known via several channels. I suggest everyone with a Premier Miles card to do the same. This is NOT the time to take this lightly.

@above

if you get any news from citi regarding this do let me know. Citi should have at-least restrained devaluation on higher end cards where they charge high annual fees. I own all three of Citibank’s card ie Rewards, IndianOil and premier-miles. Off the three my favorite is premier-miles due to good rewards point structure. Do you recommend any other airmiles cards? i’m not a great fan of jetairways so i steer clear of any co-branded card with jet as partner.

How i wish Indigo partners with some credit card company to offer a co Branded card.

Had delayed redemption for the last day hoping that I would redeem those at ShoppersStop online. But now I realize that it is available only at stores for Rewards cards.

Still more attractive for low-end users as they haven’t applied any redemption charges as it has become a norm among other banks.

Sure, will let you know if there’s any change. Citi Premier Miles is also my favorite, mostly for travel bookings. But I tend to use it for day to day shopping as well. As for other airline CCs, I have a Jet Airways branded credit card but you wouldn’t be interested in that. To be clear, if it weren’t for the overseas travel and upgrades to their excellent business class (Premiere), I wouldn’t like Jet either.

There is no scientific method that I can share with you. In short, it’s a combination of these things:

  1. Jet Privilege member since 2006
  2. Lot of international trips
  3. Jet Privilege tier changes between Gold and Platinum (i.e. free upgrade vouchers)
  4. My charm. You wouldn’t believe how many times I got upgraded simply because of this factor. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

I know it might sound strange to someone who has not been upgraded to business class for free, but the charm-factor is a major one. Ask any frequent traveler and they’ll confirm. Even if the entire business class is empty, the airline counter/gate staff will not upgrade you if you act grumpy or be rude with them. As for how many international trips I take, sorry, but can’t disclose that because:

  1. The number might seem abnormally high and, instead of believing it, you will LOL again
  2. Might get bombarded with PMs for requests to import stuff

Upgrade powers are with
1. Captain of the plane
2. Ground Staff Manager for the Airlines

The people who check you in are shared staff who are on contract and same people board flights across airlines https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif at least tht is the case in Mumbai and Delhi – from BA to Jet airways to Lufthansa to Air India…. Emirates to Viman

Ok, so either you have done some research on this, or you have also traveled extensively. In either case, know this: I have been upgraded for free by the airline staff of Jet Airways, Virgin, and AI. Of course, I can’t be sure who actually initiated the upgrade for all of the cases as sometimes I was intimated about the upgrade at the gate. I have never gotten an upgrade from Mumbai. But I have been mostly upgraded for free from these cities (not an exhaustive list): Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Singapore, Brussels, NY (JFK), Newark, Chicago.

looks like some of the members are curious about free upgrade to Business class. What deal seeker said is correct. The people who usually get upgraded to business class are the ones who are well dressed and presentable. Having good relationship with the airlines also helps to certain extend..

At the risk of sounding like a preacher, I would also like to add that well spoken, well dressed, well read, and well traveled people always get such preferences in all aspects of real life. Probably to my own detriment, this is partly why I sometimes emphasize using the correct grammar and well composed sentences. I recently saw a movie that somewhat deals with this topic, although it mostly focuses on the proximity-effect. I highly recommend anybody interested in this subject to watch it.

I used it on Vodafone site for mobile payment 100 points = 40 Rs,
there are other options too like direct cash (condition: Points > 5000 and rate 100 pt = 35 rs) .
choose whats best for you.
