    When international starts again will you stay with your usual provider ?

    There are plenty of award flights available and for the normal number of points. If fares are insane, it might make sense to purchase some points/miles. The other advantage of award flights is that you can easily cancel.

    Refunds for Hong Kong travel?

    The HK protests are peaceful. I doubt you'll have any joy getting refunds if you opt out.

    Interesting. I first got mine in 2008, and the instruction was always "select Credit" in the paperwork that came with the card.

    Not all ATMs will access Citi savings accounts, but any Visa branded ATM will access the Visa Debit by way of the Visa network. Hence its basically infallible in a Visa ATM.

    Funny, have never had an issue anywhere using Citibank Plus. The only people I know who had a problem ignored the instructions and selected Savings/Transaction account instead of selecting Credit/Visa at the ATM.

    Whats the best USA sim card deal at the moment?

    Historically the little booths don't carry Sim cards. You have to go into a T-mobile store.
