As summer concert season reaches a crescendo, Citi (NYSE:C) is giving customers another way they can get tickets to see their favorite music live. Now Citi ThankYou® Rewards members can redeem their ThankYou® Points directly to purchase tickets to sought-after performances on LiveNation.com.
Through Citi’s relationship with Live Nation and the Citi® Private Pass® program (www.citiprivatepass.com), customers already can enjoy exclusive ticket presales, preferred tickets, VIP experiences and access. Now, Citi ThankYou Rewards members (www.thankyou.com) can use their points to buy tickets to concerts at Live Nation venues. Some of the upcoming Live Nation concerts for which Citi customers can use their ThankYou Points include: Big Time Rush, Kelly Clarkson and The Fray, Dave Matthews Band, Nickelback and Brad Paisley.
Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment and eCommerce company, is the first “Shop with Points” merchant for the ThankYou Rewards program. The LiveNation.com payment page will feature ThankYou Points as a payment option. ThankYou members can also combine points with a credit or debit card to complete their purchases.
“We believe redeeming rewards for what you want, when you want it should be quick and friction-free,” said Ralph Andretta, Head of Co-Brands and Loyalty at Citi Cards. “Using your Citi ThankYou Rewards Points for concert tickets is just a few clicks away.”
