Re: Citi Custom Cash Card

This is actually pretty good for a card. In fact I'm downright suspicious lol

 

Anyone know Citi's rules for PCing to new releases? Thinking of maybe changing my Diamond Preferred to this

Re: Citi Custom Cash Card

This is an interesting new offering.  For those who have modest spend in a category like groceries, it might be a good fit. 

 

A few things are notable; 'Bookstores' is not a category (so no 5% off Amazon - a comparison to the old Sallie Mae came to mind here) and Walmart is excluded from the grocery category. 

 

I have too much recent activity to apply for it, but I might consider doing a PC of my Rewards+ MasterCard if they'll let me.  I'll have to think about that a bit. 🤔

It's basically a Freedom/Flex/Discover IT/*insert 5% rotating category card* so forever? I don't see this going away at all

Indeed, @Remedios would be proud 😂

 

If I was one to take advantage of BT offers and the like I'd keep the DP but the small spending offers they send aren't enticing enough compared to the rewards structure of this card
