New Citi Thank You Card

June 4th, 2015 at 01:12 pm

My husband's new Citi Thank You Premier card arrived in the mail today. What a package it comes in! I've included pictures, because my description would fail. It seemed to take forever for it to arrive. He applied on May 21.

A pretty large box! Those aren't our cards in there, but that is where they were. Smile

We plan to use the card to pay for our hotel, food and gas on our move east. These costs will be reimbursed, but it's nice to earn rewards on those costs. Our first living space is a furnished rental apartment for 30 days. We can pay for our rent on a credit card! This portion is not reimbursed(although I write that and think maybe 10 days is covered...need to check), but the reward of $500 after spending $3,000 will help reduce that initial housing cost.

We also have a rather large repair bill on this home that we will need to pay very soon. It may go on this card, too. I do have the cash, but some rewards along the way don't hurt. This card doesn't have the 0%, so putting the charges on this card will force me to use the cash I do have to pay it.

Onward...more things to do to get ready for the packers on Tuesday!

    I noticed my new BOA card came in a fortified envelope. I wonder if they are packaging them so that you can't tell they are credit cards from the outside.

    Could the packaging have anything to do with RFID scanning - i.e. protecting it from being scanned?

    That sure does seem like overkill though for a CC.
