[…] Get up to $100 for Referring Friends to Citibank Checking by Frequent Miler. Terrible deal, you can usually get $500 for opening a Citigold account and completing the requirements so I wouldn’t recommend referring friends to this offer (unless it’s possible to stack and I highly double thats the case). […]


They had the same promo last year. I signed up and referred my roommate to open a Citibank account. Never got my referral bonus. Went back to the banker who helped us, then been told the Member-Get-Member system had some issues, thus do not recognize the promo we did, and there is nothing he can do. So long story short, save yourself the effort, don’t even bother. Just wait for the $500 citigold bonus.


Do you know if this referral bonus will work in conjunction with the $400 citi checking account bonus offer?
