Topic Wiki

I'm trying to summarize success stories mentioned in this thread.
From @TC610
It never hurts to ask - retention is a big YMMV.  If you don't like the offer given to you when you call for retention, ask for a better one.  Scan through the thread (use the search bar - reading through 130+ pages of posts can be time consuming) to see what others have been offered. Please post what you've got if its better then whats in the WIKI

Has Citi gotten strict with Retention offers?

Used to call in every few months and get promo offers.

Must be 18 months or so now and not getting spending bonus offers or anything.

Anyone else notice this?
I got a promo offer a few months ago, but when i called a few weeks ago for another one they said there's nothing available on any of my accounts
