Some More Free Money From Citi

Sorry for the sporadic posting. I am still around...

Citi really doesn't want me closing their credit cards!

Two months ago, I called Citi to cancel my Citi AA Amex card. I was offered a choice of rewards to leave the card open and chose 3,000 miles. The other day, I called Citi again to close the same card. This time they offered me $50 credit for leaving the card open, even though I told them clearly I have no use for the card.

I will try to apply the $50 statement credit to a different AA card, as the first year is almost up with this card, and I don't want to be charged the annual fee. I'll let you know how that works out.

It's amazing how much free miles and money one can get from Citi...

It does work. You can get the credit applied to the card you combine the old one to

Immanuel, thanks for the tip.

Are you talking about applying the credit to this Amex card first, then when consolidating the cards, the credit moves over?

With this $50 credit that I was offered, you have to send in a certificate, after which they apply the credit to the account. That's why I am trying to apply the credit to a different card to begin with, as they say it can take two billing cycles for the credit to go through.
