Citi has sent out a a notice to Citi AT&T Access More cardholders announcing that there will be changes to the 3X categories. As you might already know, the card earns 3x ThankYou Points on online purchases at retail and travel websites.
Here’s what the notice says:
The categories eligible to earn 3x ThankYou Points for purchases made with your AT&T Access More card are being updated. Beginning July 22, 2017, you’ll only receive 1 point, not 3x points, for every $1 spent online on the purchase or reloading of gift cards or on rental and real estate payments.
Please note, you’ll still earn 2x points on every $1 spent on purchases made online at eligible retails and travel websites, including department and warehouse, online travel agencies and airline websites.
This is certainly bad news for those who have the card and especially those who were using it to make rental and real estate payments through Plastiq. This comes just one day after it was announced that the use of a VISA card for mortgage will no longer be supported via Plastiq and will not process going forward.
