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

Do you feel this is a lucrative offer?

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.

Had the same thing, it takes two weeks for the check to clear and the account is frozen meanwhile. Don't deposit checks.

It's one of the better checking offers, but some people stay away from banking bonuses.

I know citi costumer service sucks... And I would be hesitant to just open a new checking account... We'll think about it.

Yup. Couldn't even access my Citi credit cards since it was all under one login. Had to mail a payment instead of doing it electronically.

Fine print:

Targeted as well for aa miles. Seems to me that I would end up paying $150 for the 50k points.

My cheshban —— $30 monthly service fee (if avg balance is less than $50k) x 5 months = $150

Of the 5 months above: 2 came from the required “qualifying bill payments” and 3 is from the 90 days it takes for bonus miles to be credited to actual account.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, as I would like to do this offer.

How long did it take for your bonus to post? A full 90 days after meeting requirements?

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

how not get downgraded from citigold before 60k miles gets posted?

assuming not carrying a $50k balance, how not get charged fees for citi priority?

for me 1-2 billing cycles after meeting the requirements
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

TY points from this offer are not transferable to Airlines. Only good for 1.25 travel bookings or GCs
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
