Back in November/December 2012, I applied for an ordinary Citi ThankYou card, since I was looking for a plain-Jane starter card to establish a bit of history with. I've posted elsewhere about the cumbersomeness of their rewards program (short recap: not all cardholders of the same card get the same bonus categories; you have to call to find out what your personal bonus is), although with 5x gas, groceries, public transportation, parking, and drugstores, up to $2500, it's actually one of the most decent cards in the wallet this quarter.
I noticed on my statement that they had upgraded the card in October to a ThankYou Preferred (2x restaurants, entertainment). They had been sending out mailers (which I mostly ignored) which had been really pushing the ThankYou into dining and entertainment territory, but I was rather surprised to see that the ordinary Citi ThankYou is no longer on the website, and it seems to have been formally rolled over into the Citi ThankYou Preferred.
I'll be sorry if I'm losing those 5% categories, but they have such a range of cards, I'm not surprised that they're trying to consolidate and focus their cards a bit. I've been really using it a lot this quarter with so much household spend... I rather feel I'm being downgraded.
