Re: CITI Upgrade?

I got a mailer for Diamond Preferred. The card looked like such a yawn. I was an AU on a Platinum Select...another yawn. Why do people like Citi again?

Re: CITI Upgrade?

Just received this same mailing, not sure if it will tempt me to pull my Citi card out of the sock drawer!

Re: CITI Upgrade?

On Friday, I noticed my Mint summary kept showing my Platinum Select as a Diamond Preferred card. I logged into my Citibank account where I've linked my citi credit cards and sure enough, there was a message saying they have sent a new card out to me. Did anyone successfully do a product change to a different product? I called and they simply said all PS cards were being converted to Diamond Preferred.

Re: CITI Upgrade?

I also got in the mail telling me about an account upgrade to Citi Diamond.  I used this card last year for no interest balance transfer while I pay off some other accts.  The card just sits in the drawer. I, also was wondering why but my Citi Platinum was "upgraded" to World, I believe a year or two ago..   What is the reasoning for all  this?  Last time< I checked my FICO was 740.

Money. Merchants pay Citi more per swipe if the card is a World Mastercard.

I had Platinum select before I called to convert it to Thank You preferred. Just call the number on the back of your card and politely ask.
