Citigold 50k

50k TY or 50k AA miles for opening a CitiGold checking account.

Similarly for TY points bonus requires a TY Citi credit card.

I transferred my bank account  TYP, to my CC, and then closed the bank account. I then forgot about them, and the points expired.
 Any possibility to get them back with a sympathetic rep. ?
Life is as good as you make it...

I have a bunch of Thank You points that I earned thru the Citi Gold Promo. What is best way to cash out, besides gift cards if I am not planning on traveling anywhere anytime soon.

I think they have Amazon GCs. That was the best use I found.

Probably going to go that way, just making sure I am not leaving money on the table.

DP:
Signed up for Citi Gold in May after receiving a mail offer. Completed requirements in June and still waiting on the points. Called. called, called and I keep being told that there is a big hold up on AA releasing points. Was confirmed that I met the requirements in email and on the phone. This is getting ridiculous and Citi just started charging me $30 a month (September).

How can I force them to honor their 90 day guarantee that points will post?

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If I don't have any Mortgage or Student loans, Is there any other way for me to cash it out?
