Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. The calendar date may say October 7, but to me, it feels like Christmas morning! Let me explain. I just checked my Citi credit card statements and noticed this message on my 3 Citi AT&T Access More Credit Cards. According to the message, Citi did not reward me the correct number of Citi Thank You Points for purchases made on my Citi AT&T Access More Credit Cards. Citi is going to make an adjustment to my account in the next 2-3 billing cycles (actually, Citi credited the missing Citi Thank You Points on that statement).
Good morning everyone. As a result of my recent July Credit Card App-O-Rama, I now had 2 Citi Premier Credit Cards. The plan all along was to product change the first / oldest Citi Premier Credit Card into a new Citi Rewards+ Credit Card. I will keep the second / newest Citi Premier Credit Card as is because I need access to the Citi Thank You Point airline transfer partners. I called Citi and asked the rep to convert my Citi Premier Credit Card into a Citi Rewards+ Credit Card. The rep processed the conversion and stated the following:
- The conversion process would take a total of 51 days, starting on September 5, 2019.
- The conversion process would be completed on October 26, 2019 (if I wanted to stop the conversion process, I needed to call back before this date).
- My credit card account number would not change (but the credit card expiration date and CVV code would most likely change).
- It would take up to 11 days for benefits to kick in (I’m not sure if that is true, by credit card benefits seemed to kick in right away).
- My new Citi Rewards+ Credit Card would arrive in 10-14 days (but I could continue to use my existing Citi Premier Credit Card until the new credit card arrived).
After the call, I logged into my Citi online account and spotted my new Citi Rewards+ Credit Card beneath my Citi Premier Credit Card.
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. In mid July, I applied for 5 credit cards and was ultimately approved for 4 credit card in my July App-O-Rama. Here are the credit cards and their sign up bonus details (listed in the order the sign up bonus posted):
- American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card – spend $3,000 in 3 months and get 70,000 Delta SkyMiles
- Wells Fargo Propel World Credit Card – spend $3,000 in 3 months and get 40,000 Wells Fargo GoFar Rewards Points
- Banco Popular Avianca Vuela Credit Card – spend $1,000 in 3 months and get 60,000 Avianca LifeMiles
- Citi Premier Credit Card – spend $4,000 in 3 months and get 60,000 Citi Thank You Points
I have had all of these credit cards before (with the exception of the American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card), so I will share my dates and churning details in this post. I have also written about some of these sign up bonuses already, so I will link to those posts too. Without further ado, let’s start with my American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card.
American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card
This was the quickest sign up bonus to post (with the miles posting 9 days after applying for this credit card). I wrote more details of the quick sign up bonus here. As of today, I haven’t used the Delta SkyMiles yet and do not have any immediate plans to use them.
Updated 8:30am PT on 8/12/19: I did another transfer, so I added the second data points to the bottom of this post.
Good afternoon everyone. 2 days ago, I read Frequent Miler’s post Forget email, book Turkish awards over the phone (7.5K each way) and decided to create a Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles account (the Turkish Airlines frequent flyer program). I wanted to test the transfer time and make sure everything was working properly, so I transferred 1,000 Citi Thank You Points to my new Turkish Airlines account on 7/30/19 at 1:46pm. How long would it take for the miles to post to my Turkish Airlines account?
Good morning everyone. Last week, I did my July App-O-Rama and was instantly approved for the Citi Premier Credit Card. This credit card offers 60,000 Thank You Points after spending $4,000 in 3 months. This is my second Citi Premier Credit Card, the other Citi Premier Credit Card was opened 4+ years ago and is still open. Based on Citi’s 24 month churning rules, I needed to wait 2+ years after getting the last sign up bonus and make sure not to open/close/convert my existing “family” of Citi Thank You Point earning credit cards. The new credit card arrived yesterday. In this post, I will show you the card art, the welcome documents and show you how to activate the credit card on the Citi Mobile App. Here is the front and back of the credit card:
