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.

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.
