They just mailed out my Citi Forward card. I had PC'ed from the Dividend Mastercard to it in January and they said it would happen at the close of my statement cycle in February. I hope that the 5x points stays.

I was racking up points in bunches with the 5x on restaurants. I guess I need to request for credit increase on my Chase Freedom

It is no longer being marketed to new non-student cardholders, but the Forward has not been discontinued yet.

Return to “Visa & MasterCard”
