After an application process that was beyond farcical, I finally received my Citibank platinum visa and signed up for the QFF rewards. Once I'd confirmed the relevant QFF details had appeared on the internet banking site in the 'rewards section', I made several purchases. No points have posted as yet.
I was told my billing month ends on the 16th....I assume both the 60,000 points plus monthly spend points won't post until approx 16th of July?
Has anyone been told that Citibank only transfer points in 10,000 blocks? One Customer service rep told me this was the case though I cannot find any reference to this in any of Citibank's conditions online or what we received in the mail...hopefully it is BS as I'd be a bit annoyed if it takes several months for the points to post.
My bonus points appeared very quickly - less than a week after activation, and before any of my spend points, in fact (which is why the "didn't make the deadine" comment set of alarms on my Bull$hit Radar). These spend points were transferred over at the end of the month anniversary, when my statement was generated.
I certainly wasn't told of a 10,000 point block - and it is not in any T&C's I was sent, so will be fighting that one if they try it.
I keep fortifying myself with the idea of 60k bonus points and a dollar-per-point earn rate (better than my my old CBA Visa). It prings out the points-prostitute in me, I guess!
