I got this offer in the mail. Terms seem pretty simple & straightforward. What's the catch??

Is it for regular checking or some premium account with high monthly fees?

Just be aware that citi sends out 1099s on some of their TYP bonuses. Might be only for 60k bonus though.

Had time to read the fine print... Looks like a monthly fee of $30 if a 50k monthly balance is not maintained.... I've never closed a bank account yet. I have Chase and Santander. How terrible is it to open this bank account and close after 6-12 months? Will it affect my credit?

Open Citi Gold with no fees, after 2-3 months they'll downgrade you.

Keep in mind banking TY points are not transferable to airlines. If you have a Prestige & premier card you can redeem @ 1.25 for flights, or cash out at 1cpp

Also, check your citi online account. I see a targeted offer for 60k aadvantage miles, if you rather take that

It's an offer for citi priority, not gold... (looks like they have different levels of this offer...) I have the citi premier card , can't I sell then for same amount at around 1.3?

You can open a gold account and get 60k points, read the mailer again

Can't sell these points, no way around it

Thanks, see below invitation specifically for Citi Priority. So offer still worth $500 for spending only $750...

I did it a few months ago but didnt even get the points.
I opened the account online and they flagged it for fraud  after I deposited my first pay check, the check was on hold for more than 2 weeks IIRC, by the way I found their reps to be very unhelpful, was thrown from one to the other like a ball, and this is priority where you are supposedly getting better service.
It was schlepping around so long and I miscalculated the time frame and missed the bonus. I closed the account at the end.

If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Where did you get the 2-3 months timeframe from?
