Hi, I just got approved for a Citi Prestige credit card. If I open a bank account, my fees on Citi Prestige will be reduced to $350 from $450. This much is fine.

But, what will happen if I close the citigold checking 3-5 months. Will they charge me $100 again for Citi Prestige when I close the checking account?

William,

Do you know the rules for around how to churn a citibank account bonus? I know the rules for Chase is very clear but I have yet to get details around citibank. I know you cant be an existing checking account holder. So if I close my account, how long do I have to wait? etc. Have you had or heard people have had success around churn citibank checking bonuses? Any pointers/guidance around this?

Do you still recommend calling to sign up or would you feel comfortable using the promotional code and opening the account online?

Hello, I am a newbie to this website. Just two questions regarding this promotion-
1. A citi branch is quite far away from me. Can I open this account online? How about funding the account using my credit cards if I do it online?
2. I have a Citi student checking account. Am I qualified for this promotion?

Thank you very much.

I got the Prestige card with $350 AF through branch application, I was just thinking by getting the gold checking, will I be getting another $100 off the annual fee? Hehehe…

I assume this can’t be done a second time if we’ve already received the CitiGold AA sign up bonus?

I’m in Calif., got a

“We’re sorry, but we’re unable to open this account for you online. But you may open this account by calling 1-800-374-9700.”

Can both of these deals be opened? I got a Citi Premier last month.

I also would like to get a Chase Hyatt card, got a CSP & Inks in the last 2 months. Maybe I should get the Hyatt card first before any bank accounts?

I wonder if I can get the Citi Double Cash and these accounts at the same time?

After you enter the promo code in the application does it ever pop up to say what your sign-up bonus is? I wanted to make sure that the promo code stuck before going through the whole process.

In side bar, there’s a “promotional rates” tab. Click it.

Can I still get the TYP if I don’t have a citi card that earns TYP?
