I hate this trend of flat, un-embossed, card-information-on-the-back cards though. The only card that looks good like that is CSP in my humble opinion.
Sounds like current card members (that have had their card at least 12 months) are eligible to convert starting 7 September. Not sure if I will convert my Dividend or not. I am very happy with my BofA Cash Rewards Visa Signature. Also, Citibank is notorious for "bait and switch" rewards wherein they will get you to sign up for an awesome card (my Dividend back in 2004-2007 had 5% back on groceries, gas and drugstores and then 2007-2010ish they changed to 2% on groceries, gas, drugstores and added utilities and then mid 2010 made it a fake a$s Freedom/Discover wannabe with 1% and 5% rotating categories which over the past few years do nothing for me) and then change the rules and "nerf" the rewards. But it certainly is better than Dividend.
Should be interesting to see how popular it becomes. Would be a nice pairing with Discover IT or Chase Freedom for gas.

Now I contact them through Twitter/Facebook so that I get senior specialists that know what they are doing and have the power to get things done. I wonder if I could convert my AT&T Universal Card to this....if so I may do that and close Dividend.
