Getting the Citi Hilton Cards Before They Go Away

Last week the news broke that after this year Citi will no longer issue or carry Hilton co-branded cards. Naturally, this will have a big impact on many who currently have those cards and their built-in benefits, as well as those who may not currently have a Citi Hilton card, but want to get one before they go away for good. There are currently two Citi issued Hilton cards, the Citi Hilton Reserve card with a $95 annual fee that has a…

Big News: Citi Hilton Cards Going Away in 2018!

Big news in the co-branded credit card space this morning as American Express has won the right to be the exclusive issuer of Hilton cards beginning January 1, 2018. For years both Citi and Amex issued their own Hilton cards, with each offering one Hilton card with no annual fee and one with an annual fee, for a total of four personal Citi cards on the market. That’s sort of a lot of Hilton cards, though that is a great things…

If You Don’t Do This, You Have Too Much Money

It is full-on spring, which means we are cleaning up our yard, planting the garden, tackling projects that waited patiently all winter, and literally attacking the girls’ closets since at least 50% of what fit when summer ended last year does not fit now that warmer weather is again here to stay. These girls are growing faster than the flowers I can guarantee! All this seasonal change and purging means there is new yard equipment, shoes, shorts, sunglasses and more that…

Getting 10% of Redeemed American AAdvantage Miles Instantly Rebated

In the last few weeks I have been using more American Airlines AAdvantage miles than I had in recent history, and in doing so I have noticed a very cool trend that may be old news to others, but was new info for me. One of my favorite perks of the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite MasterCard, the Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Red, and Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Silver Elite credit cards is that they return 10% of your redeemed American miles to you each year. This…

Getting Holiday Shopping Cash Back Thanks to Citi Price Rewind

This shopping season I have been using a “secret weapon” to serve as a savings back-up plan in case I didn’t really find the best deal out for some of my holiday purchases. This “secret weapon” isn’t really a secret as I have written about it before, but the Citi Price Rewind feature with some of my Citi issued credit cards is really helping me out this holiday season by tracking online prices for me and ultimately saving me money. Here’s how…

Limited Time: 50,000 Mile Citi AAdvantage Public Bonuses Return

Like many other rewards credit cards, the American Airlines Citi issued credit cards often bounce their sign-up bonuses around a bit, at least in terms of the official public links. For the last several months, the personal and business Citi AAdvantage Platinum credit cards have publicly promoted 30,000 mile sign-up bonus, but recently they have brought the bonuses back to the 50,000 mile level after $3,000 in spending in the first 3 months for a limited time! These cards have a…

New Option for Earning JetBlue Points

For years the JetBlue co-branded credit card was issued by American Express, and during that time JetBlue was also only a transfer parter with the Amex Membership Rewards program. However, as you likely know, the JetBlue co-branded cards switched over to Barclaycard this year and now there is a new JetBlue transfer partner in the game that isn’t even Amex or Barclaycard! Transfer Your Citi ThankYou Points to JetBlue As of earlier this week you can now transfer your Citi ThankYou…

Big Changes to Who Can Get Citi Credit Card Sign-Up Bonuses

Once upon a time people used to get lots of rewards credit cards issued by Citibank – in practice this often led to lots of American Airlines miles from the various co-branded American AAdvantage cards and their sign-up bonuses. Then they tightened up on how frequently you could get the cards and the related sign-up bonuses. Then they tightened up a bit more. For the last few months the terms of Citi rewards cards often indicated you couldn’t get the sign-up…

More Big Citi Prestige Changes Revealed

I wrote a few days ago that changes were on their way for the popular but pricey Citi Prestige credit card. At that point we knew that the card was losing American Airlines Admirals Club access effective July 2017, but that even more changes were likely to come. Now we seem to know what more of those changes are…and they aren’t good. Some of these changes are obvious by looking at the new sign-up website, but some are inferred by…

What is Changing with the Citi Prestige Card?

Over the last few days I’ve seen lots of tweets and blog posts about upcoming changes to the popular but pricey $450 a year Citi Prestige credit card. To be clear this isn’t a card I have a direct affiliate relationship with, but it is pretty common for those who do have an affiliate relationship with a particular card to get a head’s up that changes are coming so they can be prepared to adjust their websites and posts with…
