Citibank phasing out Diamond Preferred

I have heard that Citi is phasing out this card and will introduce a new card late spring 2013.  I can't find anything online to support it.  Does anyone have any info?

I actually wouldnt doubt that they would phase this out. There is not a whole lot of advertisment for this and CITI is really pushing TYP

I'd rather see them ad TY points to the card. It catches my eye everytime I see it. Its classy looking, far more so to me than the Fisher Price look of the TY cards.

I don't think they're changing it ; afaik, it has been on their line up for years... And is known as a basic, yet premium..type of low rate card.

Re: Citibank phasing out Diamond Preferred

Well, all I know about it is my buddy that is a banker at Citi told me Diamond was being phased.  Does anyone know if Citi has a new card?

Your buddy would probably know more than anybody here if he knows about the Diamond's fate.

Prestige is not new, just new graphics.
