How To Get A Free Fitbit Blaze From Citi And It’s Goals

There is only one surefire way to get yourself a free Fitbit Blaze – the latest and greatest instalment by the Fitbit brand – that tracks not only your fitness, but life in general.

You’d have to talk to Citi


They’ve decided that, yes, in the era of self-absorbed life recording on all manner of channels from Instagram to fitness apps, having a seamless way you can track, share and build-upon your life’s fitness and financial achievements all in one is a definite must.

Say a warm ‘hello’ ? to the Citi Platinum Credit Card: the latest offering by Citi to help its customers make the most of life and achieve their financial and fitness goals.

Signing-up to this credit card guarantees you a free Fitbit Blaze (worth $329.95), $199 AFFY then $249 and 0% for 12 months on BT and has fantastic benefits, such as the Citi Dining Program, where card members can receive a free bottle of award winning wine every time they dine at one of hundreds of partner restaurants in the Citi Dining Program and receive points when they spend.

Not that wine really works well when you’re taking control of your own fitness, but hey, you need a reward somehow, right?

The beauty about the gift with sign-up is that the Fitbit is a winning piece of tech that does ‘life’ in general so well. Citi listened to its customers and found that healthy living and fitness are amongst the highest priorities in the lives of many, so, they’re helping us out.

Take for example, a 7-day challenge. The task? Simple: walk as many steps as you can.

It’s truly astounding to see how many steps the average office worker can take in a regular Monday-to-Friday week, primarily being stuck backside down to a desk chair. Just take a look at my progress from a Tuesday to a Tuesday…

Fitbit Blaze Citibank Platinum Credit Card Steps

The recommendation stands around the world at approximately 10,000 steps per day to maintain a healthy semblance of a life in which you’re not stagnant all the time. Mission accomplished ?? Mind you, an average of marginally over 10k steps per day is shy of what the average Sydney Swans AFL team player funs per game, which can range from anywhere between 8 to 15 kilometres per game depending on their position.

Someone get a Fitbit Blaze on them, quick!

It helps that the Fitbit Blaze has options and trackers for a wide variety of physical exercising from walking, to running, elliptical training and yoga, so all bases are covered – really honing-in on that ‘life’ element. Not to mention the fact the Blaze synchs with the Fitbit app on any smart phone to bring phone calls, text messages and calendar reminders right to your wrist. Clever thinking.

One of the greatest things to come from the Citi gift-with-purchase offer on the table for a limited time is that actually finding out this information is inspiration to keep going with it. Their mission to aid Australians in achieving their fitness goals in this case has worked so well that you can master it, too, by signing-up to a Citi Platinum Credit Card by choosing your free Fitbit Blaze size and applying HERE!
