Citi and Expedia.com expanded their partnership with the launch of the new Citi PremierPass / Expedia.com Card. The launch comes nearly a year after Citi and Expedia began their relationship with the introduction of ThankYou Rewards Network on Expedia(R), which more than one million Expedia customers have joined. Cardmembers who book travel with the card will reap the benefits of the Citi PremierPass Card, named "Best Airline Rewards Card" by Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine, as well as the world's leading online travel agency, Expedia.com.

Now, with the new Citi PremierPass / Expedia.com Card, travelers earn ThankYou Points for everyday purchases made with the card, additional points for eligible travel booked on Expedia.com, and points for the miles they fly on any airline. This combination of ways to earn points is unique in the industry.

"We heard from our customers that they want a way to earn points for all of their travel and across travel brands. They also want the ability to redeem their points for travel when they want, without blackout dates," said Paul Brown, President, Expedia(R) North America. "This card does all of that, and we believe it significantly enhances the value of ThankYou Network on Expedia."

"At Citi, we continually look for ways to increase value to our customers," said Terry O'Neil, Executive Vice President, Citi Cards. "Our expanded relationship with Expedia and the new Citi PremierPass / Expedia.com Card deliver on this commitment by providing accelerated earning potential to Expedia and Citi customers who acquire the card and book their travel through Expedia.com."

Cardmembers have tremendous choice in redeeming their ThankYou Points for rewards, including any flight available on Expedia - any time, any seat, with no black-out dates through thankyou.com. They can also redeem points for great rewards and amazing experiences that include merchandise, gift certificates to many favorite stores and restaurants, electronics, golf passes, movie certificates and more.
