Citi ThankYou® Premier Card

Hi guys, is the Citi ThankYou Premier Card a Visa Signature card or a Mastercard? Are you able to switch it up from Visa Signature to MC incase you get the Visa Signature version?

I got the world MC before I did the conversion.

I would ask them.

Re: Citi ThankYou® Premier Card

I just went through the application and it appears it's Visa only.

 

I also noticed the following under the disclosures:

 


To receive a Citi ThankYou® Premier Card, you must meet our applicable criteria bearing on creditworthiness. Your revolving credit limit will be determined by your annual salary and wages, your other annual income and a review of your debt, including the debt listed on your credit report. You will be informed of the amount of your revolving credit limit when you receive your card. If you're applying for a MasterCard, some limits may be as low as $2,000. If you're applying for a Visa card, some limits may be as low as $5,000. Please note that cash advances may be limited to a portion of your revolving credit limit.


 

 

 

@armbenderc, is the World MC version the one with the silver MC logo as well?

Do you get the Chip for the MC version?

Not silver, it's just said MasterCard with 'World' on top. Yes it has the chip. Sure you want the $125 AF card?

Re: Citi ThankYou® Premier Card

I've been comparing it with the CSP, the nice thing about it is that it has the chip technology in it for abroad travels.

Re: Citi ThankYou® Premier Card

I love my CSP, but no chip yet. I think they is a post floating somewhere that they are testing it since CSP is metal card.

Re: Citi ThankYou® Premier Card

Ah that's good to hear! Because the last thing I want is a card that is optimized for international travels but that doesn't have a chip, having a chip will help avoiding those embarassing declined card moments.
