Well, it may be too late. I don't see the regular citi forward avail on Citi's site anymore. Just the college version...

My guess I they're taking it off the market for a few days while they revamp the card. A lot of us have gotten messages that they're sending us a new card. After calling, some are finding out they're being upgraded to Visa Sig, and others are finding out they're getting a global chip...neither of which have been offered for the Forward before. I think this is about to be made into a "higher level" card for Citi.
