OP, thanks a lot for sharing this. Hopefully won't be any hassle receiving the 1000 points.
Also, I agree with JackD - they're 1000 free points and don't necessarily need to be used at Amazon. But if you do truly want to use your points towards Amazon and wouldn't mind using your Citi card to make some purchases to accumulate 2500 points, you could redeem the 2500 for a Best Buy GC and then use that to purchase a Kindle GC. That way you get the 1 cent per dollar instead of the 0.8 if you used the points straightaway on Amazon.
Can someone copy & paste the terms and conditions after you register? I forgot to capture them and can't get back to find them.
