Citi AT&T Access More Travel Category Bonus
From the moment it launched back in 2015, the AT&T Access More card has gotten a lot of attention and rightfully so. While it is no longer available for sign-ups, the card came with a $650 bonus good towards a phone and generous 3X categories.
This morning Citi sent out an email to cardholders indicating that you can now earn 3X on travel purchases in addition to online retail purchases. A few readers seemed to think this was an addition and were confused, so I thought it was worth posting about.
I can definitely see why people might be confused.
The email has the following subject: “Great news! Earn points when you use your card for travel.”
The text says: “Start planning your next getaway!
Earn 3X points when you use your AT&T Access More Card from Citi online to book a flight or reserve a hotel room.”
And it looks like this:
While it may seem based on the subject that Citi is adding the travel category, it has been there since the beginning! For example, here is a screenshot of the offer from my post about the card in April, 2015.
In fact, I dug into the terms in my 2015 post to cover exactly which types of travel are included and which are not. This is simply not new.
Getting the Card Now
If you are interested in the AT&T Access More card it is no longer available for new sign-ups, but you may be able to convert another Citi product to it. Between the 10,000 anniverary points after $10K spend and the 3X earnings for most online purchases including travel, this card is one of my most heavily used.
I can definitely see why some people were confused and clearly a lot didn’t know about the travel category bonus. For that reason Citi was probably smart to promote it and let us all use this as a reminder of just how awesome this card really is!
