I called to try to open over the phone using the promo code for the Thank You points offer. After providing name and zip code, the rep. told me that I was not eligible for this offer. (Note: I have both the Citi Premier and Citi Prestige, TY earning cards.) I was following the advice given to call first to make sure of eligibility. Based on my results, I would further encourage calling first. I suspect that if I had applied on line, I may have been approved but might not have received the bonus points.

Just for background, I previously did the Citigold banking offer for the AA miles and succeeded in getting the bonus. That account has been closed for about six months.

Hi, opening an account over the phone and was told that we can’t fund it with Citibank card.
Anyone tried it to fund it with prestige? Thanks

Two points to consider. Do not apply for new accounts if you expect to move within the next 30 days. This has been a major source of hassle, as I was told that I had to close out my new account and re-apply with the new address. Then there were issues with online access and proper forms to verify my new address.

The second hassle has been getting my W9 processed. I was trying to manually sign up for the ThankYou account (which apparently isn’t automatic), and was told only when I spoke with customer service about an error that was generated, that my W9 was rejected. They claimed that I did not sign it, which is complete BS. They said they might have rejected it because it wasn’t close enough to my signature card’s signature. Will try calling again early this week to see if they’ll accept it this time…

For the $1000 spend requirement, has anyone fulfilled this through money orders or loading bluebird at WM?

Just a data point for others. Funding over the phone was a very simple process that took about 5 minutes. I called the number listed above and asked to fund my newly applied for CITI Gold account. Without even asking to use a credit card the rep asked me if I would be using my credit card for funding. They must be getting a lot of requests for credit card funding and now expect it.

I plan to fund $5000 with a Citi Hilton Visa to this account. The cash advance limit for this card is $2600. Should I still set the cash advance limit to $0??

I think you are safe since you’re funding higher than your cash advance limit.

For some reason the consensus is to set the limit at $0 instead of funding over the limit. Perhaps there is fear that the cash advance limit would be extended past the limit unless it is at $0. I am too new to this to predict what might happen.

Your linked post about 1099s doesn’t address whether they issue 1099s for miles. It only talks about TYPs. Does anyone have any data about 1099s for AA miles?

What is the” $50,000 in combined link deposit or retirement accounts
$100,000 in all linked deposit, retirement, credit or investment accounts (excluding a first mortgage with citibank?”

I have several citi credit cards but not checking, saving, or other products with Citi.

I am bit confused about the req of the Citi Gold checking.

Thanks

Chuck

You’ll pay the $30 fee (starting a few months after account opening) if you don’t deposit $50,000 into your Citi checking account.

I have had the AA Citi Mastercard for a few months but so far received no targeted offers for this promo. So I attempted to apply online with the promo code but after entering in the state of IL I could not get any further. Six attempts later I finally got through to the application and filled it out completely. There was no field to enter my AAdvantage # so I’m not sure where the points will go. I was given the opportunity to fund the account and after clicking the debit card option, I received the message: This service is temporarily unavailable. Please try back later. I looked for a confirmation email so I could find out how to log in to my account but there was no email from Citi. I then called the assistance line from the application and was told that it would take 3-5 business days to find out if the application was approved. Today is day 5 and still have not received any email or snail mail.
