Citi Double Cash Complete Guide

The Citi Double Cash card used to be a simple fee-free 2% cash back card.  Given that there are quite a few fee-free 2% cash back cards on the market, this one was noteworthy primarily just because it was available nationwide from Citibank and it didn’t require jumping through any hoops such as enrolling in a credit union or setting up an accompanying investment account.  It is also easily available as a product change from…

Double Cash ThankYou Points Transferable to All Partners (when paired with Prestige or Premier)

Yesterday we learned that the Double Cash card’s cash back can transfer 1 to 1 to Citi ThankYou Points.  That means that this card can equally earn either 2% cash back or 2X ThankYou rewards for all spend.  Since the transfer wasn’t working properly yesterday, there was one remaining question: Will we be able to transfer these points to airline programs like Avianca, Virgin Atlantic, Turkish, etc. if we have a full-powered ThankYou card like…

Citi is poised to rock our wallets again (Points transferable to airlines!)

UPDATE 9/23/19: I’ve confirmed that points from Double Cash are transferable to airlines when paired with Premier or Prestige! UPDATE 9/22/19: 1 to 1 transfers are real!

Citi is out with what looks like an interesting targeted offer: bundle select Citi credit cards with a Citi Priority Banking Package and get a 25% bonus on ThankYou points or cash back earned on your credit card each billing period through 1/31/21. Note that this offer isn’t available to everyone (Greg tried to call and request the deal, but was told that it was not targeted to his account). That said, we’ve heard from…

(EXPIRED) Citi Double Cash adds $100 signup bonus

The Citi Double Cash Card is finally offering a signup bonus: $100 cash back after making $500 in purchases within the first 3 months. As the card amounts to a 2% cash back card (1% when you make purchases + 1% when you pay your bill) with no annual fee, it has long been on our Best Offers page even without a signup bonus. It’s nice to finally see a signup bonus added to it. The Offer Get $100 cash back…
