New credit card, new rewards goal

August 16th, 2015 at 01:55 am

I got my new Citi Thank You Premier card today. Oh my gosh. You should have seen the fancy schmancy package it came in via Priority Mail. Talk about trying to make an impression.

Funny thing is, it bears a new circular design that I've been quizzed about as a citi online forum member. They wanted to know if I liked the card design but here it is, already produced and in circulation.

Of course, I will have to be careful to cancel this card (I can be rather lax in cancelling cards) before a year has passed so I don't get hit with the annual fee, waived for the first year.

I'm looking forward to earning my $500 in gift Cards by spendng $3,000 in 3 months. I have friend who like to help me do that by letting me pay for their bills and paying me back in cash. Smile

Gas prices are low today. $2.49 a gallon. Heating oil is too, but with the new 150 gallon minimum, I'll have to wait til at least November to fill up, by which time prices will have probably risen as demand rises. Frown

    Did your gas go up? Ours went up from 2.18 on Monday to 2.89 on Thursday because a refinery in Indiana was having issues.

    Do you have a calendar that you can put a reminder to make sure you cancel the card?

    Gas is such a scam. It was $2.39 @ 8:30 am on Wednesday at 5:30 pm it was $2.99 @@

    We have that card and yes the packaging was over the top! It also has the magnetic strip on the front, or something reversed...that makes cashiers do a double take. Smile
