Card art gone wrong: Where is the name of my card?

Reading Greg’s post this morning about the Marriott properties to book before the coming devaluation (See: Book these category 5 Marriott hotels before it’s too late) probably has some people reconsidering the value of their Marriott Rewards Premier credit card now that the annual free night certificate is losing a number of Category 1-5 options. That had me taking stock of my credit cards, and I couldn’t help but consider how they look, even if that isn’t…

Citi Prestige 75K is still alive

US Credit Card Guide is reporting that the Citi Prestige 75,000 point signup bonus offer is still alive in-branch through tomorrow. You would have to go in-branch to apply and they are showing a screen shot of a marketing material showing an end date of 10/7/17, so this is truly a last call. The online offer has already changed back to no signup bonus, so if you’re looking to take advantage of a signup bonus on the…

My $500 trip delay claim with Citi Prestige

Update: Citi is now denying claims based on a missed connection (like the one outlined in this post) unless your leg arrived more than 3 hours late. See: The Fine Print: Fighting Citi Prestige’s ‘Trip Delay’ Shenanigans for a more detailed update. Greg has recently written several posts on travel insurance offered by various premium credit cards (See: Travel Insurance Showdown: Reserve vs Prestige vs Platinum). Many cards offer what sounds like generous protection benefits on the surface, but…

Possible last call for Prestige 75K offer

Citibank is currently offering a huge 75K signup bonus after $7.5K spend for their Citi Prestige card, but The Points Guy reports that the 75K bonus will be ending soon (they don’t know an end date, just “soon”). But… will it really end? A number of blogs recently made a big deal about the end of the Citi Premier 50K offer, but that one is still going strong.  Still, it’s possible that the Prestige 75K…

Travel Insurance Showdown: Reserve vs Prestige vs Platinum

Last week I reviewed the Chase Sapphire Reserve card’s travel insurance.  I was impressed with how favorably it compared to the lower cost Sapphire Preferred card.  But, how does it compare to travel insurance provided by other ultra-premium cards? I created a new resource page: Ultra-Premium Credit Card Travel Insurance to answer that question.  There you’ll find a side by side comparison of the travel insurance benefits automatically provided by the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Citi…

Results from my latest Citi retention call

retention call

Yesterday I called Citibank to check for retention offers on my cards.  I do this about once a year and usually come away with offers that make my cards well worth keeping for another year.  To get transferred to a retention specialist it’s necessary to tell customer support that you’d like to cancel your card.  Don’t tell the automated system that, though.  Some people have been burned when doing that: the automated system automatically closed…

Debating my 1.67 cents screwed up math

In response to my recent post “Up to 1.67 cents per point value from ThankYou points,” some accused me of publishing junky and screwed up math.  I answered those accusations in the blog comments, but there’s more to the story… When news first came out that the Citi Prestige card would allow 4th Night Free bookings online and with points, a blogger published a questionable conclusion.  Through the ThankYou portal you can now choose to…

Planning for Citi Prestige 75K and Premier 50K offers

The Citi Prestige and Citi Premier cards are currently offering 75,000 point and 50,000 point signup bonuses, respectively.  That’s excellent, but many of us aren’t eligible.  Before applying it’s important to review Citi’s application rules and compare to your past 24 months of Citibank applications, account closures, and product changes. As a reminder, you can find application rules for each major bank on our Best Offers Page.  “Jump to” the bank you’re interested in to…
