Good morning everyone. A few days ago, I received the following letter from Citi regarding my Citi Forward Credit Card. The letter was similar to the letter posted on Doctor of Credit, but mine did not include a targeted spending offer. I reached out to Citi on Twitter and asked if they could match me to the targeted offer. Long story short, I spoke to a member of the Citi social media team and we went through a few options. I will share what my long term plan is regarding the Citi Forward Credit Card conversion into the Citi Thank You Preferred Credit Card and share my plans for some of my other Citi credit cards. Here is what the letter from Citi looked like:
Good afternoon everyone, I wanted to give a quick shout out to those of you who attended the San Francisco travel meetup last night with Tonei and myself – it was great talking to you all and I hope you all had a great time. Anyway, a few days ago, a new AMEX Offer came out where you could earn 1,000 American Express Membership Reward Points for making a $100 payment toward your cable or satellite TV bill. To make it even better, American Express let you do that up to 3 times. If you made 3 payments of $100 or more, you would receive 3,000 American Express Membership Reward Points. That seemed easy enough, so I eagerly added the offer to my American Express Everyday Credit Card. Sadly, this was my only credit card that was eligible for this AMEX Offer, otherwise, I would have added the offer to all my American Express credit cards and prepaid for cable for the next few years :)
Good morning everyone, happy Wednesday. Yesterday, Citi sent out emails to all Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card members telling them that Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card will Earn 1x for Gift Card Purchases & Real Estate Payments (Effective July 22, 2017). This caused mass panic in the miles and points community and got me thinking, is there a better card to use than the Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card? Maybe!
I searched on Google for a no annual fee Citi AT&T credit card and stumbled onto the Citi AT&T Access Credit Card that has no annual fee. That credit card has a 10,000 Citi Thank You Point sign up bonus and earns 2x for online purchases and AT&T purchases, and 1x on all other purchases. Unfortunately, that credit card does not offer a 10,000 Citi Thank You Point bonus when you spend $10,000 or more during your cardmember year. This credit card also has the same change in earning on gift card purchases and real estate payments effective July 22, 2017.
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! A few days ago, there was a great AMEX Offer that came out from AT&T Small Business Wireless where you could earn 2,000 Membership Reward Points for making a qualifying purchase of $200 or more. To make the AMEX Offer even better, you could use that AMEX Offer up to 3 times per enrolled card and get up to 6,000 Membership Reward Points. Frequent Miler and Doctor of Credit were the first I saw to cover the AMEX Offer. Even though the AMEX Offer was only targeted to American Express business cards and supposed to be for business wireless purchases, I decided to see what would happen when I made a $200 payment to my AT&T Wireless account (I do use AT&T service for my blog). If you are interested, here are the full AMEX Offer terms:
Buenos dias everyone. I got a voicemail last Sunday afternoon from a Citi fraud prevention representative in Jacksonville, Florida asking me to call in to verify some recent charges. In retrospect, the fact that they were calling on Easter Sunday might have been a red flag, but at the time I didn’t think anything of it, and actually forgot about the call until I tried to place an order with PayPal Digital Gifts using my Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card and got an error message. When I logged into my Citi account, I got a popup message informing me that my charging ability may be limited, and found the following message attached to my Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card:
