A week before I gave birth, Aneth, who I used to work with at Citibank, sent me this yummy package of goodies from Marks & Spencer (I ate the caramel mini-bites before I could take this photo haha), plus an e-Plus movie card, along with a hand-written note:
Turns out, this was just but a feel of how it's like to be a Citibank Rewards cardholder. The Citibank Rewards card, which was only launched in July, is the new credit card that features instant rewards available to cardholders throughout the year and is set to be a new benchmark for loyalty programs in the market.

From year round free movie passes to generous shopping rebates and waived annual fees, Citibank Rewards cardholders can expect instant rewards.
For example, with this card, you get a free P100 movie pass for a minimum single-receipt purchase of P2,500 anywhere. And this applies whether you shop locally, online or abroad.
Plus, redemption is easy peasy! No more vouchers, charge slips or forms to fill out. Just present your credit card at their partner merchants and claim your treat.
How easy? Well, to redeem movie passes, card members just need to swipe the card at participating cinemas, and they can see how many movie passes they can redeem*.
Cardholders are also entitled to:
- generous 5% rebates when shopping at Aldo, Aldo Accessories, Celio, Charles & Keith, Giordano, Marks & Spencer, Nike Park, Pedro, Runnr, Toby’s, Topshop, Topman, Urban Athletics and Zara.
- as much as 3% at The Landmark Department Store, Metro Department Store, Rustan’s Department Store and SM Department Store
- and 1% rebate for all other department stores. Cardmembers can use the rebates in denomination of P100 to pay for their next purchase at the participating merchants and these DO NOT expire.
The new card also waives annual fees for principal cardholders who spend at least P20,000 per month, or P240,000 within their year of membership. In addition, their first three supplementary cardmembers are free when they each make purchases at least six times every membership year.
Now, isn't this the ultimate rewards card for regular movie-goers and frequent shoppers? Makes me want to switch cards from our regular card to the Citibank Rewards card na!
*The P100 movie passes are credited to their accounts three business days after the purchase and are valid for 30 days. Up to two movie passes can be redeemed per day in Cash & Carry Cinema, Eastwood Cinemas, Festival Cinema, Greenhills Promenade, Greenhills Theatre Mall, Robinsons Movieworld, SM Cinema and Walter Mart Cinemas.
