Confirmation - Forward (normal version) discontinued???

Has anyone been able to ascertain whether the Citi Forward (non-student) version of the card has been discontinued?  Im trying to find some information about it.

 

 

Thanks,

They better keep the existing accounts opened and not cancel the card all together. 5% off amazon is nice

I see no reason why *anyone* couldn't apply for the college version.  On the app, it asks whether or not you're a student.

 

I'd imagine, your odds of approval can only improve if you're "not" a student.

Not at all, it's easier to get credit as a student than at the same age and income as a non-student. MUCH easier.
