  1. Will the points expire if you transfer them to a TYP CC? I have seen reports that transferred points only last 90 days. Can you confirm or deny this?

  2. I applied for new citigold account but still now there is no confirmation about the account open? When I filled in all my details. I got a screen your application is being processed then after there is no email or mail ? is this normal? should i call then enquire about my new account? Please advise
