You can still get to the application link if you google the dividend, but I guess the worthless Dividend's days are numbered. I wonder if this means eventually Citi will let Dividend cardholders do a PC change (or even "nudge" cardholders in that direction in much the same way that Discover did when they introduced the IT and encouraged other cardholders to switch). You gotta think Citi has totally lost any interest in coming up with categories for the Dividend.
When it first came out, the Dividend was a great card; too great...too many people signed up and maxed out the annual $300 maximum so they changed it, and changed it again. The Dividend's current 5% categories are ridiculous; and for me at least, worthless.
When they got rid of the Cash Returns card, people who had them still have them, so I don't know if they will automatically change Dividend cardholders to Double Cash. My plain Jane Platinum Select Visa was recently force changed by Citibank to a Diamond Preferred.
I am thinking about asking if they will let me change my AT&T Universal Card into the Double Cash; if not then I will ask for my Dividend to be converted (I'd rather keep AT&T account as it will be 16 next year and close my Dividend altogether). Since I am existing cardholder, I will change one of them into this card; however, if I were not a Citibank cardholder I wouldn't bother with it. I figure I can use the Double Cash for "everything else" and continue using my BofA Cash Rewards for groceries (2.2% with redemption to my BofA checking) and gas (3.3% redemption to my BofA checking). I'll know more in about a week with the rest of you.
