I received 100,000 QFF points for the$5000 spend in December 2019. I was thinking to cancel the card before the annual fee is coming up next month. Citibank emailed me that I will receive an "extra"50k points after December (as per the deal I signed up last year) obviously with $395 annual fee. I am looking for suggestion if I should pay the fee and take the points? I don't really need this credit card in 2021...
Thank you everyone. Will report back soon.You could try calling them to see if they are willing to move on the annual fee (along with letting you keep the 50k) if you retain the card for an additional year. Start off at having it waived then work your way up from there.
My renewal was due in December. I rang up a week before it was due to be charged and was offered $200 off the fee. I declined and rang up 2 days before and talked to the closure team - full rebate of the $395 offered. They said they would charge the fee on the due day and immediately rebate it which they did. Didn't ásk about the 50k Qantas points but hope they get posted in January.Happy Boxing Day. Called Citibank. Annual fee waived and will also receive the 50,000 Qantas points for being the second year having the premier card. Thanks for the suggestion.
I called Citibank and they told me to wait up to 12 weeks (by End of Feb). Would be interested to know if other people got it earlier.I have just received my January statement but no 50k QF points. Are they supposed to post on the first statement in the 2nd year or is there a time lag? I imagine the T&Cs probably say within 8 or 12 weeks but what is people's experience?
My 50k QF points posted today along with my transaction points from my Feb statement. Surprisingly my 50k points were not listed on my Feb statement. I didn't contact Citibank at all about these 50k points.I have just received my January statement but no 50k QF points. Are they supposed to post on the first statement in the 2nd year or is there a time lag? I imagine the T&Cs probably say within 8 or 12 weeks but what is people's experience?
