|⚠️ Who is considered new-to-bank?|
|“New-to-Bank” refers to a Citi Customer who fulfills the following criteria:
For the avoidance of doubt, holding a Citibank credit card or personal loan will not disqualify you from “new-to-bank” status
The S$250,000 in fresh funds must not originate from any existing account with Citibank, and funds must be maintained until the end of the calendar month, five months after the month the account was opened. For example, if the account is opened on 26 August 2021, the funds must be maintained until 31 January 2022.

For a better understanding of how the investment and insurance bonuses are calculated, do refer to the T&Cs.
All customers must complete a goal setting session with their Citigold relationship manager, including Total Wealth Advisor and Investment Risk Profile. Your relationship manager will be able to advise you on your current financial position, goals and needs to determine the suitable investment portfolio for you.
However, you can pick and choose which of the above tasks you wish to complete. For instance, a new-to-bank customer who applies online (applying via SingSaver would qualify), deposits S$250,000 in fresh funds and holds any principal credit card would already receive an extra S$900 in cash.
As a reminder, Citigold customers also earn a relationship bonus of 5-30% on any credit card points earned through the Citi Prestige Card. I’ve explained how that works in this post, but to summarise, here’s the impact on how many miles per dollar you earn.
|Regular||0-5 Years||6-10 Years||>10 Years|
|Local Spend||1.3 mpd||1.36 mpd||1.38 mpd||1.42 mpd|
|Overseas Spend||2 mpd||2.06 mpd||2.08 mpd||2.12 mpd|
Even a brand new Citigold customer would already be earning 1.36 mpd on all local currency spending with the Citi Prestige, one of the higher earning rates on the market. Don’t forget the wide variety of Citibank transfer partners, plus the opportunity to buy cheap miles via the ongoing Citi PayAll 2.5 mpd promotion.
If you’ve been thinking about opening a Citigold account, this is an opportunity to stack an additional free gift on top of Citibank’s regular offers. Don’t forget to apply by 15 October 2021 (your account opening date can be up till 15 November 2021) and fill out your rewards form as soon as you receive it via email.
