Nice little bonus. I got this offer on my Dividend, and reader Ryan did as well. Email subject includes “activate this offer for 5% back on eligible PayPal purchases.” Seems it’s targeted on select Citi cards, some cashback cards and some points cards.
The 5% should be on top of the standard rewards on the card. The term state: “Earnings…may overlap with other special offers in which you are currently enrolled.” I interpret this to mean that it can stack with other promotions.
[If you use Paypal with your Citi Dividend card at one of the 5% rotating category merchants, you may end up with 10% (5 + 5), though it might not code properly since it’s through Paypal.]
