Thanks but used 98% of my cash (Marcus) to buy stocks (SP) during march... Best thing ever but very scary.. Still holding and living paycheck to paycheck
I'm waiting for the impending recession when everything returns and things aren't quite "normal", because a lot of people don't have money to spend causing a downward spiral.

I'm not seeing it at all after clicking your link. Maybe it is only offered in your zip? Do you mind sharing your zip?

Google searches doesn't seem to show up anything either.

Nice! When does the 60 day qualifying counter actually start? The terms seem to say it starts from the 30th calendar day after account opening, but also says it's from when you deposit the $15K.

If you're going to open checking and savings account make sure to fund both of them.
The last time they had the promotion for checking/savings I opened the accounts and deposited $$ only to savings. They closed my checking account automatically. I asked customer service if I still qualify for the bonus and they said yes. I left the money in parked in Citi savings to the expected date of the bonus and surprise surprise they didn't pay it and they don't care what their support said.

Just to make it clear, there seems to be 2 promotions. One that requires a checking account only (which is this one), and another that requires a checking and a savings account. I saw the banner when I logged into my CITI Double CB card portal and opened the checking account that way. T&Cs don't mention a savings account. However, if you Google CITI checking promotion and go through that link, it does require both accounts, and the bonus for $15K deposit is $400 (vs. the $500).

I assume you got the 2.5% cash back boost for your Citi Double CB as part of the promotion? Does it actually show as 2.5% in your account once it kicks in, or is the extra 0.5% a separate credit later?

Yes, that was part of the promo. However, I don't have any way of seeing how it's implemented (just like you mentioned), yet. It still shows "1% Purchases & 1% Payments". May be it hasn't kicked in yet. I'll report back here when the promo CB is reflected in the account.

My first statement since promo signup posted, and it shows as "Bonus Earned this Period:" on the statement. Online still shows "1% Purchases & 1% Payments" so I don't think that will ever change.

Question is whether we can downgrade to Citi basic checking after we get the $500 bonus so we can just have $1500 sitting in the Citi account instead of $10000 minimum for until this Citi extra cashback expires. Someone in one of the threads said that a Citi rep told him the cashback bonus isn't affected even if the checking account is cancelled, but not sure I trust a random Citi rep.

I funded my checking account the $15K on May 18. When did you fund yours? Then we can check back when the bonus comes in.

Be careful when ordering the "free" first order of checks. Mine showed free/no charge on the order page, but they still ended up charging me $25.95 which they reversed once I called them.

Check Bankrate. Most of the online banks give a decent interest rate. Also consider CD's if you dont plan to use the money for a period of time.
