Citi ThankYou Mastercard Advice

Postby Mountainmanduy » Sat Mar 23, 2013 9:44 pm

I currently have the Citi Thank You Mastercard, that I hardly use. I saw the Citi Hilton Honors Visa Signature card with their special promotion. However, if I have a Citi Thank You Mastercard, can I still sign up for the Citi Hilton Honors Visa Signature Card?

I do not need the other card, so do I cancel the card or sign up first for the Hilton Honors? Or do I just call customer service and ask them to make the switch for me? I just want to get the promotion for that citi card. Thanks!

If you product change your Thank You MasterCard to the HHonors Visa you will likely not get the special promotion. It never hurts to ask, but with most product changes you do not get the sign up bonus.

Ive read that some people were able to get the 5x promo on their TY card for 6 months by calling threatening to cancel. That's a great retention offer.

5x promo on all categories or just specific ones?

I've read this as well. As a matter of fact, you can call them every time a promo ends and it seems like they have another one waiting.
