If you'll call Citi's customer service and you'll hear "thank you for calling citibank, my name is meshugener, how may assist you today?" you just say quietly "THIS IS HELPME CALLING" and you'll get extra special good service. take my word.

Wow you taakeh are meshuga.

Just keep avoiding the question,  you're doing a great job so far.

So if I have a Citi checking account that does not earn thank you points is there any reason not to take the option of earning the thank you points? I never realized that this checking account could earn rewards or never cared too much because the points werent very valuable but now it may make sense to earn them.  Someone mentioned that they 1099 you for the checking account though.  Is that a strong deterrent ?

The 1099 is for sign up bonuses for checking accounts. The TYPís you earn should not receive a 1099.

Hopefully this will get Singapore to hire CSR rep's. Did anyone ever manage to book a partner award on SQ?

I just dusted off an old At&t Universal Business Rewards card I had buried in a desk drawer. Never thought this card would hold any value to me. It was originally a aadvantage business card but I switched it over to avoid the annual fee. Small line (only $1500) and still not close to my go to card (1 TY point= 1 ba mile per dollar spent) as I still carry Starwood, sapphire, freedom, as well as a CO/United, BA card( 1.25 miles per dollar) and Aadvantage.

Still even though it remains my last card to use, I know If there ever is a need to max all cards out, the points are at least of good value now :)

lol.
Though TPG made me laugh when he wrote that he is encouraging the Citi Rep's to add AA as a transfer partner.
I believe he should keep up encouraging the Pakistani / Indian reps, and he'll get very far doing that.

HAHAHA! And I'm working on the Sprint Reps to not send customers to the store every time there is a problem. And Dell reps to not run extended diagnostics everytime your comp has a problem.

The world is a balanced scale and your one good deed can tip the scale for good :)
Seriously though, maybe someone will volunteer to talk to SPG reps to up the airline transfer bonus from 20-25k???

Its just a blog on the USAtoday site, not something really major, and the blogger posted it yesterday on his private blog. However, they're all giving Dan credit. Incl. TPG who blogs on nytimes.com
