if I downgrade to Rewards+SM, is that considered "account closure" in terms of resetting the 24 month clock to getting a SUB on a card?

Bonus ThankYou® Points are not available if you received a new cardmember bonus for Citi Rewards+SM, Citi ThankYou® Preferred, Citi ThankYou® Premier/Citi PremierSM or Citi Prestige®, or if you have closed any of these accounts, in the past 24 months.

so would it be logical to downgrade my premier card to the no fee Rewards+, and in another 15 months (24 months after receiving a SUB on premier) sign up for the premier card a 2nd time?

It will depend if you stay with the same account number. When product changing within the same family you usually stay with the same account number

Just found out the hard way… The extra three months at Citibank was supposed to be giving everyone to meet the bonus is not automatic and your account has to be qualified for it....
And now I see that even if I didn’t get the bonus. I can’t get it for 24 months from time I close the card... not sure how it works if I downgrade since account number stays the same.

Any advice?
Was hoping to downgrade card and then reapply since I didn’t get the bonus

Downgrade in most cases is like a closure

So no luck in terms of reapplying now?
Just wait out 24 months?

just chatted with citi and they stated that a product change from premier to rewards+ is NOT considered account closure.

as i've received incorrect information in the past, can anyone confirm the above statement?

my plan is to downgrade my premier card to the no fee Rewards+, and in another 15 months (24 months after receiving a SUB on premier) sign up for the premier card a 2nd time.

If a new account number will be issued then it will be considered a closure
