Citi TY Preferred Card Master Thread
« on: April 06, 2012, 03:20:11 PM »
Hopefully we are past all the cash back vs. points/miles discussion. With the rumored changes coming for TYPís this could be a killer for all of us (cash back/miles/points crowd).

https://creditcards.citi.com/credit-cards/citi-thankyou-preferred-card/

Earn 5 ThankYouģ Points for every $1 you spend on all purchases in the first 6 months and use the ThankYou Points youíve earned to redeem for almost anything!

After the 6 month introductory promotional offer ends, continue to earn 1 ThankYou point for every $1 you spend on purchases

Earn an anniversary bonus on points earned from purchases every year

No expiration and no limit on the number of ThankYou Points you can earn

Do you know who you're dealing with?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

If that works for you then that is what you should do. This card/thread would not be in your best interest.

Wow! I can't believe Citi released another 5% unlimited card. I've still got a few months left on my AARP card, but this can be a nice replacement.

Any possibility to combine it with 40k-50k signup bonus?
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

If Citi does allow you to transfer TYPís to airlines this will be the most abused CC in history. It will be on every forum/blog. It will make the old CR card and the AARP card look like kids play. This also has the potential to end with massive AA (A/A for DDF).

Just a friendly bump. Citi states the offer will be pulled 5/3.

They refused me when I asked them to apply it to my card that I received the 50k on.

I can't imagine ppl abusing a card just to receive miles or money. We're all better than that.
