IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT - To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. This means that we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you when you open an account. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents, and obtain identification information about you.
You authorize us to get credit reports and other information about you from consumer reporting agencies and other sources, for such purposes as: determining whether to issue you a Card Account, administering, reviewing and renewing the Card Account, credit line increases or decreases, collection and other servicing of the Card Account, and offering other products and services and for any other uses permitted by law. If you ask us, we'll tell you whether or not we requested a credit bureau report and the names and addresses of any credit bureaus that provided us with such reports. From time to time, we may report negative information about your Card Account behavior, like delinquencies, to consumer reporting agencies.
To receive a Card Account, you must meet our applicable criteria bearing on creditworthiness.
Your credit limit will be determined based on the following:
We'll inform you of your credit limit when you receive your credit card. Some limits may be as low as $500. Please note that cash advances may be limited to a portion of your credit limit.
If you are approved for a Card Account, you'll receive a Card Agreement before you can use your Card Account. The terms of the Card Agreement will take effect once you use your Card Account. Even if you do not use your Card Account, the Card Agreement will take effect if you do not cancel your Card Account within 30 days after we send you the Card Agreement. We have the right to make changes to the terms of your Card Account (including rates and fees) in accordance with the Card Agreement.
Notice to Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.
Notice to Wisconsin Residents: No marital property agreement, unilateral statement, or court decree adversely affects our rights, unless you give us a copy of such agreement, statement or court order before we grant you credit, or we have actual knowledge of its terms before your account is opened.

Summary of the Citi Rewards+ Card Terms and Conditions
With the Rewards+ Card, you can earn ThankYou Points for purchases made on your card.
Unless you are participating in a limited-time offer, you will earn:
--2 ThankYou Points for each $1 spent on purchases at supermarkets and gas stations, for the first $6,000 per calendar year and then 1 ThankYou Point for each $1 spent thereafter.
Certain Non-Qualifying Purchases.
Supermarkets - You won?t earn 2X Points for purchases made at general merchandise/discount superstores, freezer/meat locker provisioners, dairy product stores, miscellaneous food/convenience stores, markets, drugstores, warehouse clubs, wholesale clubs, specialty vendors, bakeries, candy stores, nut stores, confectionery stores, and meal kit delivery services. You also won?t earn 2X Points for purchases made at online supermarkets if the merchant does not classify itself as a supermarket by using the supermarket merchant code. Gas stations - You won?t earn 2X Points for fuel purchased for commercial purposes or used for non-automobile purposes. You also won?t earn 2X Points if the merchant does not classify itself as a gas station by using the gas station merchant code. Therefore, you may not earn 2X Points for purchases made at warehouse clubs, wholesale clubs, superstores, discount stores, department stores, and convenience stores.
-- 1 ThankYou Point for each $1 spent on other purchases including the non-qualifying purchases listed above.
For every purchase that earns ThankYou Points, your ThankYou Points will be rounded up to the nearest 10 points so that the total ThankYou Points awarded for any purchase is in a 10-ThankYou-Point increment. For example, if you purchase an item that costs $3.48, you?ll receive 10 ThankYou Points; and if you purchase an item that costs $9.51, you?ll receive 10 ThankYou Points. Points are rounded after the additional points are awarded for 2X qualifying purchases. For example, if you make a $7 purchase that earns 2X Points, you?ll receive 20 ThankYou Points.
10% Points Back from Redemptions
When you redeem your ThankYou Points, you?ll receive 10% points back from the Points Back feature for the first 100,000 ThankYou Points redeemed per year (calendar year). This means that if you redeem 10,000 ThankYou Points, you?ll receive 1,000 ThankYou Points from the 10% Points Back feature. Points Sharing does not count as a redemption of your ThankYou Points and you will not receive 10% Points Back for shared points.
Only Purchases Earn Points. Balance transfers, cash advances, checks that access your Card Account, items returned for credit, unauthorized charges, interest and account fees, travelers checks, foreign currency purchases, money orders, wire transfers (and similar cash-like transactions), lottery tickets, gaming chips (and similar betting transactions) do not earn ThankYou Points.
Merchant Classification for Rewards Categories Merchants are assigned a merchant category code (“MCC”), which is determined in accordance with Visa/Mastercard/American Express procedures based on the kinds of products and services the merchants primarily sell. We don?t control the assignment of these codes and are not responsible for the codes used by merchants. When you use your card to make a purchase, we’re provided an MCC for that purchase. We group similar merchant codes into categories for purposes of making rewards offers. Sometimes you may expect a purchase to fit within a rewards category, but if the code assigned to the merchant wasn’t grouped into that category, your purchase will not qualify for additional points. For example, you won’t earn additional points for purchases at a restaurant located within a retailer if the restaurant is assigned a “retailer” code instead of a “restaurant” code. Please also note – purchases made through mobile/wireless technology may not earn additional points depending on how the technology is set up to process the purchase. We reserve the exclusive right to determine which purchases qualify for additional points. Please see our Earning Points FAQs at thankyou.com/help for more information.
When you reach a reward or benefit cap (e.g., you spend $6,000 on purchases at supermarkets and gas stations to earn 2X Points on these purchases), and you return items (reducing your spending within that category), you will earn 1X Points for purchases even if those purchases would have otherwise qualified for 2X Points. And once you redeem 100,000 ThankYou Points annually with the 10% Points Back feature, you will not earn additional 10% Points Back ThankYou Points that year, even if subsequent returns cause a reduction in your ThankYou Points attributable to 10% Points Back.
You may earn ThankYou Points as long as your Card Account is open and current. If your Card Account is closed, you will not be able to earn and redeem ThankYou Points and you will lose any accumulated ThankYou Points that have not been transferred to your ThankYou Member Account (we will set up a ThankYou Member Account for you). You will also not earn points from rounding (Round Up) or receive 10% Points Back if your account is closed.
ThankYou Rewards may be terminated with 30 days prior written notice. If ThankYou Rewards is terminated, you will have 90 days from ThankYou Rewards termination date to redeem all your accumulated ThankYou Points. The ThankYou Rewards program may be changed at any time. Rewards offered by ThankYou Rewards and the ThankYou Point levels required for specific rewards are subject to change without notice.
ThankYou Points earned from purchases and rounding (Round Up), and ThankYou Points earned from 10% Points Back, post to your Card Account at the close of each billing cycle, and at that time we will transfer the ThankYou Points you earned to your ThankYou Member Account. (Points from rounding (Round Up) and 10% Points Back are not considered Bonus ThankYou Points. Bonus ThankYou Points may take one to two additional billing cycles to post to your Card Account.) ThankYou Points are not eligible for redemption until they are transferred to your ThankYou Member Account.
