A few days later I received a rejection letter. No request for further info or anything.
Second rejection now from CITI.

I must have offended them!
How long ago was your last Citi-backed application?

February, last approval and then a Virgin rejection around May.

I have read elsewhere in these forums they like a six to nine month gap at least...

I did not think I would let them beat me however!

I think you'll find that experiences differ. There is no absolute rule on this.

I am aware of members that have had 4 or more Citibank issued cards in a 12 month period.

So do we know for sure if holding cards like the Qantas and Virgin Money would disqualify from getting the points?
My last Citi branded credit card was a couple of years back but I do still hold a Virgin card and previously had the Qantas Money one.

No, I've had the Qantas Money whilst applying for and receiving the bonus points for this card a few months back. That said there is plenty of other criteria to accept or reject.

To Dr. Ralph's previous post, I'm one of those that have received 4 Citi cards in a 12 month period (not all at the one time) but at least 2 most of the time.

"$199 annual card fee in the first year (normally $395)
but current offer is actually first year free. not 199$.
"$0 annual card fee in the first year (normally $395), with an annual $49 fee for the Citibank Qantas Rewards Program"
Subject to your acceptance you will not be billed an annual card fee in the first year. This will revert to the full annual card fee, currently $395, in subsequent years. An additional annual fee of $49 will apply for enrolling in the Citi Qantas Rewards Program. This offer is valid until 31 January 2020.
Downside is:
Domestic Spend
made directly with major airlines, hotel chains and restaurants in Australia (uncapped)
1 Qantas Point

Domestic Spend
made directly at major supermarkets, petrol outlets and national retailers (uncapped)
0.75 Qantas Point

Domestic Spend
on all other Eligible Transactions up to $20,000 per statement period
0.5 Qantas Point

Hi All,

I applied for this card using the link on the Qantas website. Was approved and the card and documentation has just arrived in the mail. None of the documentation seems to have anything about the bonus points. I was just wondering if this is normal, or I have gotten the wrong card or something. The card itself says "citi premier". Documentation says "Citi Rewards Signature Credit Card". It does have $0 fee and $395 on anniversary and $49 for Qantas.

I just want to avoid spending up on the card if I am not going to get the points.

Cheers,

Adrian

IME, the welcome packs never mention any sign on bonus. It all hangs on your screenshots of exactly what you for applied and the T&Cs.

Normal. Happens with many banks.

If there is a problem in the future, rely upon the screen shots you took when you applied.

Yes I agree also with the previous responses. A bank (or credit card provider) can have many different bonus offers at once, for example;
  • General public website may offer say 50k points
  • Click via (say PointHacks) and get 60k points
  • Click via referal and get 70k points and 20k points for referrer.
The credit card provider won't want to customize all the different points offering so just send a standard boiler template letter along with T's and C's of the card which generally don't alter over a long period of time despite the many offerings either at the same time or semi frequently.

Nothing to worry about, but do have your evidence handy if needed.

I took no screenshots during the application. Is this something I can do now since the offer is still valid? I can get a shot of the current conditions and I should be able to prove the time frame of my application. I have never had trouble getting bonus points in the past, but I think in the past the intro letter has normally spelt out the conditions of the bonus points and that was not the case this time. I have done so with Amex, ANZ, Westpac in the past.

My method of application was to click and follow the links from the Qantas credit card comparison page.

I had the same concerns, and rang to try and confirm I had the QF card, given there was no indication of this in the welcome pack, on the card, or on my online account.
I was told I did, but wasn't convinced.
QF points incl bonus posted no problems.

So I assume that because there's no exclusion clause about recently held card, I'll still receive bonus points! Please correct if I'm wrong to assume.

If you have been accepted for the card under the promotional link offered and there is nothing in the T's and C's saying anything about exclusion (which I can't recall if Citi have done or not) then I would be thinking you would be good for points.

Best way however is to get online with chat or call them to confirm this, but I would assume you are OK.
