Re: Citibank Dividend?

We just received notices from Citi today regarding the change to our Dividend Cards. Effective October 13, 2006, "you will earn only 2% cash back on purchases made at supermarkets, drugstores and gas stations." Added to the 2% group are convenience stores and utilities.

I feared this day but knew it would come eventually.

I got the same letter yesterday for two of these cards. I also coincidentally applied for two of the Chase Cash Plus cards yesterday too. Just voting with my wallet.

I would switch over, but my gut feeling is that Chase will soon go to 2% as well.

I've had the citibank dividend card since 1987 when it was paying a flat 2% on everything for years until they switched to the 5%/1% deal recently. So now I'm almost back to the same deal with 2%/1%.

Still not bad considering I've paid $0 interest on the card and received almost $4,000 in "dividends" from them over the past 19 years.
