i cant recall if the last time i canceled a premier card was over 2 yrs ago or not.
if i apply can i get approved but not receive bonus, or will i be notified that i can process my application, as with amex?
I know people that were approved and told they cant get the bonus.

if I closed a citi premier a little over a year ago I can't get the bonus again?
if I still have 1 open and got the bonus over 24 months ago I can still apply for another of the same card and get the bonus?

If I have the rewards+ card when transferring 75k points to an airline partner for redemption, when does the 10% annual rebate points expire?

i am asking specifically when the original 75K points came from another person transfer and which usually carries a 90 day expiration policy.

If I re-upgrade my double cash card back to a premier, will this reset my 24 month clock before being eligible for another thank you points SUB?

I believe PC resets clock with Citi.

I downgraded my premier Dec 2019 and applied in Oct 2021 I didn't get bonus as it considered it as closed within 24 month. Finally spoke to executive response unit, and she called back yesterday and agreed as terms don't say product change she will add the 80k points.

Only if you get a new card number.

I didn't get the 80K bonus because I downgraded the prestige card to a rewards + card within 2 years, Citi claims I closed the prestige card because the card number changed, anything that I can still do or I am wasting my time?

Speak to excecutive response unit. They agreed with me and said they will either change the rule or update the verbiage to include product change

Just applied for myself and wife and we each received this notice:

"Unfortunately, we were not able to approve your application.

You will receive details regarding our decision via email or via written notification in approximately 7-10 days. For additional details, please contact 1-866-441-7409.

Because only certain notices will be sent by email, you will also need to check the U.S. mail for communications about your application."

We each have credit score well above 800, haven't applied for any new cards recently, and never been denied before....what can we do to be approved?

Have mostly stayed in the Chase/Amex world (reserve, preferred, blue, etc.)  and looking to open a new card- Can't decide between the Premier 80K bonus and the Capital one venture X 100K. Seems like Venture X gets more benefits and 20K more points, but higher yearly fee. Citi lower annual and ability to bi-fecta. I'm stuck! Any recommendations?

Yeah I got rejected for this card somewhat recently as well. I’ve seen some reports that Citibank is being tighter with approvals for this particular card.

Try calling the Citi reconsideration department at 1-800-695-5171

just got this card, need to spend 4k now...
was wondering if i can get away with just buying 8 $500 vgc in supermarkets. obviously in different transactions to spread it out...
but would CITI find out? and if they do, do they care what i buy as long as i hit the 4k? would they do a clawback?
any DP with experience with CITI in this matter would be appreciated.

You should be fine. If you are worried and want to make it less obvious then you can mix in some regular grocery items with each purchase...that way you don't have a bunch of $505.95 transactions on your CC statement.
