Those who still have a Citi Dividend card(you can’t sign up for the card anymore) will be happy to hear that drug stores are back this coming year as a bonus category.
During the 2nd quarter of 2016 you will earn 5% on drug store purchases (and fitness club expenses if that interests you). With the Citi Dividend card you’re capped at $300 in rewards earned annually, but the spending can be done in any quarter. So ideally you could spend $6,000 from April to June and earn the max $300 for 2016.
Keep in mind that all other spend that earns 1%, also counts towards the $300 cap.
Here’s the bonus categories for 2016
- Q1 – Home Depot & Home Furnishing Stores
- Q2 – Drug Stores & Fitness Clubs
- Q3 – Hilton’s Portfolio of Brands & Car Rentals
- Q4 – Best Buy & Department Stores
