A tad more.

I wasn't able to log into citi account access. I entered my info three times, but it failed each time. Maybe they aren't setup for that yet?

Also noticed an icon on the back of the card that looks like a bit like a WiFi icon. Apparently this means the card will work with contactless terminals. Haven't heard anything official about this though.

Citibank ? Contactless payments with Citi credit cards

That link's for Czech Republic, did see one for UK, but not for US.

Once I get the new Costco Visa with a 3% cash-back on travel expenses, I will have to re-evaluate some of my travel credit cards.

So everyone is now getting the card in the mail? We have about 4 days before we leave and I would like to have the card instead of having to wait for it to get forwarded to us on the road.

Anyone on the west coast gotten their card yet?

Live in East WA and got our cards this last week.
BTW, cards are NOT good until June 20 2016. Perhaps you will be back by then?

It came today. Same credit limit. Restaurants do not include bakeries. Guess they don't consider Panera Bread or its' clones to be restaurants.

Now to find a safe place to keep the darn thing until June 20th!

Got it today in MI. Tried to confirm on web and it didn't like my input. Tried to call but hung up after 5 minutes of waiting.

Got it today - southern CA.

They give you the option to receive other offers from Citi - I declined. In the FAQ it said they did not pull credit reports - just transferred the account. It also punts on the "what is my interest rate" - which indicates that transfers with the account (and is based on credit score). No matter for me- this will be my go to card for Costco and auto fuel... and will be paid in full every month.

Northern Calif-just got ours today. It looks like we should use the new Costco VISA for everything except. groceries. For that, we'll use the AMEX Blue Cash everyday card (up to 6000.00 is 3% back on groceries) I didn't see anything on the Citi VISA for that high on groceries. Am I missing anything?

Has anyone tried using the new cards yet? We haven't got ours yet, but I'm curious if the June date is really a hard date for any usage, or just marketing with Costco (since they won't take it until then).

Thought that was a Costco service not from AMEX. Are you talking about the extended 2 year warranty on electronics? I'm a fairly new Costco member, is this what you mean?

Gosh, I was just trying to remember the last time I saw anyone use an imprint machine. I'd guess early 1980's but I really don't know.

What I meant was that AmEx extends your warranty on anything you buy with the card up to an extra year, independent of Costco.
