Re: Citi has released the Dividend Card First Quarter (Q1) 5% categories

seems like dividends categories have been fairly lame for a couple years now. I guess with all the competition in that rotating 5% cards, they decided to go for more niche/obscure categories to be more complimentary rather than trying to compete head to head.

Actually I was really happy with this quarter's 5% on electronics, toys, and department stores.  Overall though I'm not sure about the people handling the Dividend Card.

Rumor has it though that they will be lifting the $300 annual cap next year, so maybe something is in the works for later down the pipeline.

Yeah those are pretty lame.

 

If Citi does remove the 300 annual cap and offer the MC version then Citi might have me rethink them.  Right now, Chase Freedom seems to be better

Re: Citi has released the Dividend Card First Quarter (Q1) 5% categories

I thought about applying for this card since I already have a Discover More and Chase Freedom and wanted to have the 5% rotating trifecta.  I am starting to realize it is not worth it since Discover and Chase always have better categories.
