Question About Citi ThankYou

I recently applied for and was approved for the Citi ThankYou Preferred card.  I've spent the required amount to get the 10,000 bonus points and additional points as well.  When ever I login to my account online I see that the points are posted but when I click on the "View/Redeem" button I receive the following message:


You must be the ThankYou® Account member — generally the Citi® primary cardmember or primary signer on the enrolled Citibank® checking account — to access the associated ThankYou Member Account from this website. ThankYou Account membership and Points redemption are subject to applicable Terms & Conditions.


I also try to sign in with my citi credentials and it says the same thing above.


Is there something I have to do in order to activate the reward system?

I did this back in '09, so my memory might be a bit off due to changes.


I think you have to register on through your Citibank login, then you can associate the two...I think.

Re: Question About Citi ThankYou

This same thing was happening with me. I had to ring them so they could link all the ThankYou accounts so I could get into it.
