40k citi thank you points again for opening up a bank account
code is CY4U
Here’s How It Works:

To qualify for your 20,000 ThankYou Points, first open a new regular checking account in The Citibank Account Package by 5/31/12 and enroll it in Citi ThankYou Rewards. Or, to qualify for your 40,000 ThankYou Points, first open a new regular checking account in a Citigold® Account Package by 5/31/12 and enroll it in Citi ThankYou Rewards.

Then, for either offer, 45 days after opening your regular checking account, perform both of the following qualifying activities each month and continue for two consecutive calendar months:

   • Direct deposits

   • Electronic bill payments

Just got this email...
and what does this mean? "regular checking account in a Citigold® Account Package by 5/31/12 and enroll it in Citi ThankYou Rewards"

thanks
Would this code work for anyone, or its targeted?

If you cancel the account, you have 60 days to use the points earned or you will lose them.

Even if I have a thank you credit card?

Yes, the points earned from a citi checking account cannot be transferred to a thank you credit card for purposes of keeping the points active.  The accounts can be merged, but if you close a checking account, you have 60 days to redeem the points earned  or lose them.

So many members here seem to express interest in this offer, yet there is no talk of how they dealt with the IRS-1099 from Citi.

Has anyone here received the points, and still benefited from them despite the 1099?

Is there a way to write get off taxes on this?

Would this work on a closed account too?

how strict is Citi when counting 60 days from acct opening for bonus offers?

I signed up for the Citigold 60K offer (acct opened on Nov 1) which required "1 or more qualifying bill payments for 2 consecutive months within 60 days after acct opening". However I forgot to do this in November and day 60 is Dec 31.

did I miss out on this offer or can it still be salvaged?
