Has anyone received their card yet? I want to see what the card looks like in person =] Not that it matters to me; now that there's a signup bonus avaialable I'll be applying as soon as someone can report on what their experience is with the card after one statement closing (to see how the rewards work when one PIF's), but I'm just dying to see what it looks like Smiley Very Happy


I got my card yesterday. It looks pretty nice. Everything on the back, world mastercard. Front is a little to shiny for my tastes. I feel like it'll probably wear off soon. Came standard with EMV if you care about that. 


WMC, eh?   Hmmm....since I have the same CL as you, I wonder if mine will be WMC, too?   I was hoping mine would have been in Saturday's mail, but hopefully it'll be in today's mail.


I would not be oppsed to Sunday mail delivery!


Off-topic, but the city of Loma Linda, CA has Sunday mail delivery due to a large amount of Seventh-Day Adventist who live, work and worship there (and would prefer businesses be closed on Saturday, including the Post Office).

 

In any case, it's officially Monday here.   Groan.

Does it have MasterCard logo on the front?

I managed to get the offer. I had no prior accounts or relationship with Citi Bank. I just activated the card today and sent a secured message saying:

 

   There was a mailer that was sent out indicating that I could receive $200 for $1000 spent in 90 days. I would like to be enrolled in this promotion. Thanks!

 

 

That was all it took for me to get the promotion. Their reply was:

  We have enrolled your account in a special offer where you will receive 200 in double cash dollars when you spent $1000.00 between 09/09/2014 through 12/09/2014.

 

 

So the offer starts tomorrow for me, whereas the OP's started on the same day. Make sure to check the date before you spend!

I also received the offer, my message to them was different/original. My date also starts tomorrow.

Happy to hear it is working for some of you. I saw one "negative ghostrider" reply, was worried maybe it wouldn't work for everyone else. Glad to hear at least some people are getting it.

No dice for me.  They want me to fax them a copy of the offer with my name on it, as well as my current account info.  I am trying to argue it out over secured message but as you imagine, it takes a while.
