Forward is one of the best cards out there

Postby FutureBillionaire » Mon Dec 24, 2012 12:26 pm

I love this card. As a bachelor, it's probably one of the best cards out there. I go to the movies often. I shop on Amazon all the time. I eat out way more than I probably should. I'm racking up points with this card.

I rack up points really fast with this card too. I'll be using my Discover IT for restaurants next quarter though.

I've heard that Citi Forward recognizes Amazon as a "bookstore" sometimes, does this work on ALL purchases through Amazon?? If so, that is awesome!

I just got my Citi Forward card 2 weeks ago, only used it once so far.

I redeemed my points for a 100 dollar Macy's gift card. I got a 1 to 1 ratio. I'm very happy with this card because I eat out often and I shop on Amazon often. I even have the Amazon Prime app on my xbox.

I plan on using my IT during the first quarter also. I have a newer Citi card and have been taking advantage of the intro interest rate offer. I want to pay that off before I begin using it all the time. It will be paid off in February.
