Make sure your terms for the points on the Citi Forward are 5 points/dollar for those select categories (bookstores, restaurants, fast food, entertainment) since there were rumors of some people not getting those benefits as stated.
My card was compromised, so I called to have a new replacement card with new number sent to me.
I asked the rep if he saw the 5 points/dollar reward attached to my card and he said no. There are plenty of offers out there....
A new card and number will be issued within 24 hours, so I'd like to have it cleared up by then.
When I look at the site I applied from (Nerdwallet), it clearly states 5 points for restaurants and entertainment. The Citi site clarifies and states: Earn 5 ThankYouÂ® Points for every $1 spent at restaurants (including fast food), and on books, music and movies; 1 point for every $1 spent on all other purchases*.
That's what I want!
How do I get them to attach that ThankYou Points system to my account if it isn't already? Seems strange that it wouldn't be.
