Citi Forward 5x points

I recently read about a citi forward student cardholder not recieving 5 points at restraunts, amazon, etc. As I just activated my citi forward card also, iI want to make sure im receiving these bonuses, is there anyway on the site I can make sure im receiving these "promotional" rewards?

From my understanding you will need to build your benefits to recieve the 5 points for Amazon. If its not available then its gone.
