How to Make Balance Transfers
Things You Should Know About Your Balance Transfer Offer:
If you transfer a balance with this offer, interest will be charged on purchases made with your credit card unless your purchases have a 0% APR or you pay the New Balance shown on your statement (including the amount of your balance transfer) in full by the payment due date each billing period.
If you default under your Card Agreement you may lose any promotional APR on the balance transfer.
Any benefit, reward, service or feature offered in connection with your Card Account may change or be discontinued at any time for any reason, except as otherwise expressly indicated. Citi isn't responsible for products and services offered by other companies.
Your Citi Double Cash Card account ("Card Account") will earn cash rewards based on your purchases and related payments, as explained below.
• Cash Back on Purchases: At the end of each billing cycle, you will earn cash rewards equal to 1% of the dollar amount of the purchases posted to your Card Account during that billing cycle, subject to "When you will not earn cash rewards" below. The cash rewards you earn for purchases will show on your billing statement as "Cash Back on Purchases."
• Cash Back on Payments: At the end of each billing cycle, you will earn cash rewards equal to 1% of the dollar amount of any eligible payments you make on your Card Account as long as there is a balance in your Purchase Tracker (see "Purchase Tracker" below). You will only earn Cash Back on Payments for eligible payments up to the balance shown on your Card Account's Purchase Tracker. The balance in your Card Account's Purchase Tracker will be reduced by the amount of eligible payments you make. When the Purchase Tracker reaches $0, you won't earn cash rewards on eligible payments until more purchases are made and added to the Purchase Tracker. The cash rewards you earn for payments will show on your billing statement as "Cash Back on Payments."
• When you will not earn cash rewards:
Not earning cash rewards‐
For example: Your billing statement is sent on January 1 with a Minimum Payment Due of $57.25 and a payment due date of January 26; and the first day of your next Billing Period is February 1.
• January 1 ‐ your January billing statement is sent
• January 10 ‐ you make a $300 purchase
• January 26 ‐ your payment due date (when your $57.25 Minimum Payment Due must be paid)
• February 1 ‐ the first day of your next Billing Period
If you do not pay at least the Minimum Payment Due ($57.25) by February 1, then you will not earn 1% cash rewards for the January 10 purchase and that purchase will not appear in your Purchase Tracker. You will also not earn 1% cash back for payments correlated with that purchase unless you Reinstate the purchase and then make an eligible payment.
• Reinstatement: Reinstatement applies to purchases for which you did not receive cash rewards (Cash Back on Purchases) because you failed to pay the full Minimum Payment Due by the first day of your next Billing Period (as detailed above in "When you will not earn cash rewards"). You may receive cash rewards for these purchases if they are available for reinstatement and you contact us by phone, when your account is current, to request Reinstatement for these purchases. Purchases will be unavailable for Reinstatement if you have not otherwise earned any Cash Back on Purchases or Payments for 12 months. Purchases will also be unavailable for Reinstatement after your account is closed. The amount of the purchases associated with Reinstated purchases will appear in your Purchase Tracker balance following Reinstatement.
• Purchase Tracker: We will maintain a Purchase Tracker for your Card Account. The Purchase Tracker will be shown on your billing statement. The Purchase Tracker shows the balance of purchases (as detailed above in "Cash Back on Purchases") less eligible payments made on your Card Account, subject to "When you will not earn cash rewards" above. You will only earn Cash Back on Payments up to the balance shown on your Card Account's Purchase Tracker.
• Redeeming Cash Rewards: You may visit www.citi.com or contact us at 1-855-473-4583 TTY: Use 711 or Other Relay Service to redeem your cash rewards. You must have a cash rewards balance of $25 or more to redeem your cash rewards for a check, statement credit, or credit to a linked account. There is a $1 minimum cash rewards balance required to convert cash rewards to ThankYou Points. To convert cash rewards to ThankYou Points your Card Account must be current at the time you convert. If you choose to convert cash rewards to ThankYou Points, the ThankYou Points you obtain will be governed by the ThankYou Terms and Conditions for Double Cash, as may be amended, from time to time, in our sole discretion. We may set up a ThankYou Account for you, regardless of whether you convert cash rewards to ThankYou Points, to enable you to convert cash rewards to ThankYou Points. For example, we will set up a ThankYou Account for you if you click on the "Convert to Points" redemption option. If we set up a ThankYou Account for you, we may provide information about your ThankYou Account to businesses (retailers and merchants) that participate in the Citi ThankYou Rewards loyalty program ("Participating Partners"). If you add your Card Account to an account you have with a Participating Partner and have used or use your Card Account to make a purchase, you may be automatically enrolled in a program that enables you to use ThankYou Points with that Participating Partner at checkout. If you are automatically enrolled in such a program, you will receive an email informing you of the auto-enrollment. You may also link your ThankYou Account to certain Participating Partners through self-registration processes that will be provided to you if available. You can choose to redeem your cash rewards as follows:
Only you may redeem cash rewards, unless you or we agree otherwise. You are responsible for any taxes that may be due on cash rewards redemptions.
• Account Closure: If we close your Card Account, you will no longer be able to earn or redeem your cash rewards and you will forfeit any accumulated, earned cash rewards. In addition, you will no longer be able to Reinstate purchases if we close your Card Account. If you close or convert your Card Account, you will no longer be able to earn cash rewards and you must redeem any available cash rewards prior to account closure or cash rewards will be forfeited. Additionally, you will no longer be able to Reinstate purchases if you close or convert your Card Account.
• Account Inactivity: Purchases will become unavailable for Reinstatement if your account does not earn any Cash Back on Purchases or Cash Back on Payments for 12 months. Reinstatement of purchases will not constitute the earning of Cash Back on Purchases for this purpose.
• Cash Rewards Expiration: Your cash rewards balance will expire if you have not earned any Cash Back on Purchases or Cash Back on Payments for 12 months.
• Value of Cash Rewards: Cash rewards have no cash value until such time as you may request and receive redemption (check or statement credit or direct deposit) for your eligible cash rewards. You may not assign, transfer, or pledge your cash rewards. You have no property rights or other legal interest in cash rewards.
• Program Rules: We may revise any of these terms at any time with 30 days prior written notice. In addition, we may terminate the Citi Double Cash Card Reward Program with 30 days prior written notice. If we terminate the program, you will only have 90 days to request your redemption eligible cash rewards.
• Fraud, Misuse, Abuse, or Suspicious Activity.
If we see evidence of fraud, misuse, abuse, or suspicious activity, we will investigate and, if we determine that fraud, misuse, or abuse has occurred, we may take action against you. This may include, without limitation and without prior notice, any or all of the following:
• Taking away your accrued cash rewards
• Stopping You from earning cash rewards
• Suspending or closing your Card Account
• Taking legal action to recover rewards redeemed because of such activity and to recover our monetary losses, including litigation costs and damages
