Citi Clamps Down on Signup Bonuses – 24-Month Wait Instead of 18-Months
Citi now changed the terms of their signup bonuses to require a wait of 24-months from when the bonus was last received to get it again. Previously, the rule had been that only an 18-month wait was required.
You are now only eligible for the bonus if the card was not opened or closed in the past 24 months.
Exceptions: Certain links for the Hilton HHonors is still showing the 18-month wording for now, and some affiliate links are still showing 18-months for one of the AA cards. I also don’t see any wording on business cards (maybe business cards don’t have the rule?). The ATT card is also still showing the 18-month language at the moment.
Update 5/3/16: Now, all cards are showing the 24-month language, including ATT and business cards.
We’ll update the List of Churnable Credit Cards to reflect the change.
