[Expired] [Targeted] Citi Cards: Get $15 Back with $75 Purchase at Amazon or Paypal

Deal has expired, view more Citi deals by clicking here

The Offer

No direct link, check email for subject: “Earn $15 back this holiday season with Citi on PayPal, <your name>” or subject: “Earn $15 back this holiday season with Citi at Amazon.com, <your name>”

  • Earn a one-time $15 statement credit when you spend $75 or more at Amazon between 11/11/2019 and 12/31/2019.
  • Others got the same offer for Paypal instead of Amazon.

The Fine Print

  • You will receive a one-time $15 statement credit after you spend at least $75 purchases with your Citi credit card.
  • Purchases must post to your account between 11/11/2019 and 12/31/2019.
  • Delays by the merchant, such as shipping, could extend the date that your purchases post beyond the promotional period. The statement credit will be applied to your account within 2 billing cycles after the $75 purchase threshold is met.
  • Returned items don’t qualify as eligible purchases and will not count towards the threshold. In order to qualify for this offer, the account must be open and current at all times.
  • If your account is closed for any reason, including if you convert to another card product, you may no longer be eligible for this offer.
  • This promotional offer is non-transferrable and applies to the account ending in the last 4 digits referenced in this offer.

Our Verdict

These two separate offers are being sent out to select Citi cardholders. No luck yet for me.

This Amazon version should stack with the separate offer sent out last month to get $20 when spending $120 on Amazon; hopefully, $120 in purchases will trigger both the $20 credit and the $15 credit.

The Amazon should also stack well with the offer from Amazon/Citi to use shop-with-points and get $15 off a $50 order. It’s a targeted offer – check if you are eligible here (affiliate link).

Sorry to nitpick, Doc. But the bracket in title is a little off.
Is: [Targeted[
Should be: [Targeted]

A good stacking opportunity: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/purchase-u-s-mint-coin-for-86-90-sell-for-187-100-profit/

The US Mint accepts PayPal, and the total cost for that coin is just a bit over the $75 minimum for this promo.

Thanks DoC.
Know which cards are being targeted?
Only citi card I have is the Aviator Business

Ryan Goldstein

As a data point, my Citi Dividend (with rotating 5% categories) was targeted, and my Citi Double Cash was not.

Got the PayPal version on my long-unused Dividend.

My Premier was targeted for the Paypal offer and my Dividend for the Amazon offer. No joy for Double Cash or Preferred.

I got the email and I have a Citi thank you preferred card.

My simplicity card that sits in a sock drawer got targeted. Haven’t used it in years.

I was just offered this deal for PayPal, not Amazon. But yeah, that should work for those who received the Amazon offer.

Did you ever get the credit? I’m still waiting on mine.

I’m still waiting on getting my $20 from the last Citi promo (after spending $120 using PayPal – https://www.doctorofcredit.com/citi-cards-use-paypal-and-get-20-back-or-15-back-various-targeted-offers/)

Anyone ever run into issues with these Citi promos?

Yes I have. Last year I got a paypal spend offer & didn’t get the credit after 3 statements had closed. Called & it was extremely difficult to get anyone to acknowledge the issue (kept getting transferred around). Finally got the credit. Have the 15/75 offer for PayPal again this time but not sure if I want to deal with them again.

Thanks for this. I was targeted on my AA MC but had overlooked the email.

Are you allowed to buy a $75 amazon gift card?

Elliott
Elliott

I have the same question. The terms do not exclude gift cards so I’m guessing it should be ok.

Got offer, but not understanding if needs to be one purchase totaling $75 or can be multiple smaller ones as long as combined total is $75.

i’ve legit never gotten any type of offer like this from citi. i actually never get any emails from them aside from statements. is there a way to sign up for their emails or something i’m missing?

Trevor

Wondering the same thing. I hate getting the concert/Citi Entertainment emails so I opted out of that. Wondering if this means I miss getting targeted for any of the actual money saving offers.

Got the Paypal offer on my Prestige. I wonder if it has anything to do with my renewal coming up in a few months. (After death by a thousand cuts over the past few years, I’ll probably cancel unless I get a decent retention offer).

Did anyone ever receive their statement credit for this?

I finished my paypal $75 on my citi card on 12/16 and still haven’t receive a statement credit

I had versions of this on 2 cards and hit the requirements. Called in to see why I didn’t get the credit and they said I purchased cash equivalents. I think buying PPDG gift cards must be what triggered this, but that is certainly not a cash equivalent.

I assume others might be in the same boat. Is this even eligible to file a CFPB complaint?

Brian C 🐕

Mine were on regular purchase items, I will need to call them.

I personally wouldn’t bother with a cfpb complaint over $15…
