how long does it take to get the certificates once you meet the spend?

Between 1 and 3 1/2 weeks after statement close.
I paid off the minimum spend requirement on 2 cards (and the payment posted) before the statement closed and received the certificates from both cards within 24 hours after statement the closed.

If I have the card for less than 60 days, I got the two free night certs, can I cancel and get the AF back?

Will the free nights be voided?

The 2 free 'weekend' night
certificates can 'technically' be
redeemed for any weekday night.
Let's be sshhhh though, I don't really
want Emily from Citi posting a thank
you for Dan for his help in promoting
the Citi Reserve card.

Can someone please tell me as to how you go about booking this weekday night?

Any final answer on dans question if you can know 100% they will honor it before getting to the check in desk?

How hard is it to get the annual fee waived?

Yes this is how they send out their certificates. They use the certificate ID number found in the email to confirm your room using the cert.

You can't officially use these certs for weekdays. I had recently used 2 certs for weekdays. The first redemption worked on the first call and the second needed some HUCA. I don't know how you can be 100% sure it'll work unless many people confirm that it worked for them.

A lot of people in this thread and others have said that it works.
