I've had my Citi card w/ price rewind for almost a decade, and in all those years I've never had a single purchase get "rewinded".


How many purchases did you register on citipricerewind.com?


I didn't even know that was a thing, ha! I just assumed it was an automatic thing. That would explain it. Oh well, like I said I always shop around for best prices anyways so I doubt it would've helped me much.


Sometimes it finds low prices in places I wouldn't think to look, or even in places that don't make any sense or that aren't there when I check. It can be dysfunctional in a consumer-friendly way.

 

For example, one time it supposedly found a laptop battery on an Etsy-like website (all I could find there was handcrafted household goods) for 75% less than I paid buying directly from Dell.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

One Mile At A Time has an interesting comment. The recent few years has Citi cards spinning, not able to decide what their benefits should be, and constantly adjusting, now throwing in the towel on benefits. This may be related to the Costco portfolio transfer from AMEX.

 

Meanwhile, AMEX, freed from the Costco albatross, has been revamping cards for the better.

AMEX also took Hilton away from Citi.

AMEX got the Marriott high value card away from Chase.

 

Remember the questions about "How will AMEX survive without Costco?" Seems like we have our answer.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

Some how, since Discover did card benefits reductions/eliminations, Citi is joining the crowd and, as of today, Bank of America joins in by announcing that one of their cards is going to experience a benefit reduction. It looks like we may see more reductions from other lender/issuer's. There is this 'whip lag' effect that comes and goes with what is in sync with the times (or is it a sign of the times?). As was mentioned in this thread, not so surprised by the changes related to no AF Tier Cards but, the travel related cards with large annual fees and benefits is more of a shock. Smiley Mad

I didn't have a popup on my AA card upon login but as soon as I navigated to "Card Benefits" the popup appeared.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

I suspect that they will still email folks at some point, Amex seems to send out a notice even if only one word changes. lol

 

If true that this is just the start, then I'd say the benefits of having a Travel card are no longer worth the AF. The whole point, for some, is for some kind of trip coverage. Those who are able to offset the AF may not care since it doesn't affect them much, but for others others it's an issue.

I doubt it will affect most of the cardholders out there. Everyone I know that has a travel card don't know all the benefits that are available and don't use them. They see travel card and say, "hey, I want to travel! I should get this card." The card companies aren't gonna care about losing people that make money off of them.

Re: Bye Bye Citi price rewind

Now that the Prestige has been gutted, the CSR stands as one of the last full premium travel cards with trip delay insurance.

What Citi has done is take two steps back and then decided to shoot itself in the foot.
