Bye Bye Citi price rewind and most of their cards’ travel benefits

Another Citi devalue.  FYI, for those who make large purchases, it ends September 22nd.

 

Lol, that leaves Barclays that offers this.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

"Effective September 22, 2019, Citi® Price Rewind will be discontinued and will no longer be provided for purchases made on or after that date.

For purchases made prior to September 22, 2019:

  • Coverage will remain unchanged, and you may submit requests with a lower price found within 60 days of your purchase
  • Citi Price Rewind will continue to search for a lower price for 60 days from the date of your registered purchase
  • To start a price search, you must register within 60 days of your purchase.  After November 20, 2019, no price searches can be started
  • Requests must be received within 180 days of your purchase. After March 19, 2020, no new requests can be submitted"

It was a good run...and the streamlined claims process made it easy to save on even small purchases.

I've currently got $46 of in-search savings...anyone else want to see how much we can collectively milk from it before it finally ends?

CSR, CFU, BBP, CF, Discover, Costco, ED, Arrival, Schwab Platinum, IHG49, Hyatt75, Brilliant, Delta Platinum, Savor, BCP, Double Cash
May add 100k Platinum for a year then PC to Gold. May add BofA Premium. May add Virgin Atlantic. Likely to downgrade Savor, CSR, BCP.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

Unfortunately not all that surprising given many banks have eliminated it. My guess is the only ones who made heavy use of it are the unprofitable customers. I guess putting a cap on it wasn't enough.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

It's not just price rewind. Now it looks like they'll be removing just about every benefit from their cards including the Prestige. They've pretty much destroyed their card benefits. https://www.doctorofcredit.com/citi-removing-most-benefits-from-all-cards-on-september-22-trip-cance...

 

@redpat you should probably change the title to Bye Bye ALL Citi benefits Smiley LOL

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

For the more pricey AF cards, how will they still be able to demand $495 for the prestige?

Wow:  "Double Cash and Dividend cards will have Extended Warranty and Purchases Protection benefits removed"

 

IMO, except for those who REALLY hate Sync, this cements PPMC as a clear winner for 2% over DC (price rewind was the major feature in DC's favor)

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

This is so much bigger then just price rewind for one card. Almost every single Citi card is getting a major devaluation of benefits.

Yeah and not even that. I have the DC and PPMC. I've used price protection with the PPMC and I got my refund within a week or so. It wasn't automatic like Citi, but honestly, Citi doesn't always find the cheapest price unless you send it in yourself. So there's that too.

I filled out all the required info on the Mastercard site, submitted the required docs and advertising from another vendor, and everything got approved within a few days.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

If the free AUs on AA Exec  disappear, that would be the nail in the coffin for me.

Citi gone crazy, remove massive number of benefit from almost all cards

Prestige just lost more of its shine against CSR.
