During the beginning hits of the pandemic, we were all, for the most part, stuck at home. With the vaccines rolled out, slowly but surely, exploring and living life is back on the table, and entertainment is at the heart of it all. Citi Entertainment® can be the place to explore new experiences. Here’s how to use your Citi card for entertainment.

What Is Citi Entertainment®?

Citi Entertainment® is an online portal full of entertainment possibilities. Anyone with a Citi® credit card or Citibank® Debit Card can use the portal to gain special access to entertainment. On the website, you will find thousands of event sales, including presale tickets and exclusive experiences for the year’s most anticipated concerts, sporting events, dining experiences, and more.

To gain special access while on the Citi Entertainment® website, cardholders will be asked to use the first six digits of their Citi® credit card or Citibank® Debit Card as a passcode to search for tickets. Search the site for happening events or artist concerts in a city near you and filter out whatever dates work for you.

If you’re not banking with Citibank yet, consider a Citi® credit card to access the exclusive experiences available on Citi Entertainment®. Citibank has plenty of credit cards to choose from that can fit whatever lifestyle you live. If you’re looking for a simple card that covers your basic needs, the Citi Simplicity® Card may be a credit card match for you.
