Frequently Asked Questions
What is the fulfilment status for Citibank and Standard Chartered Credit Card rewards?
- We work closely with our financial partners to fulfil the rewards in the shortest possible time. For full disclosure and transparency, we’re continuously updating this Fulfilment Status on a weekly basis to keep you informed.
Can I submit a redemption form first before spending/activation? Why is there a 12-week wait?
- Of course, it’s absolutely possible to submit the redemption/claim form before activating your new card. Do make sure that you submit your card application through us and that you’re a new cardholder. As for the fulfilment process, the bulk of the waiting time happens during the verification process conducted by our financial partner. Click here for a detailed overview of our fulfilment process.
What is considered a Citibank New-to-Cardholder (NTC)?
- In layman’s terms, applicants must not have any existing Citibank Credit Card at the time of application. Let’s say, you currently have a Citi Cash Back Card, and planning to sign up for a Citi PremierMiles Card promo, you’ll be ineligible for the MoneySmart reward because you’re already holding a Citi Cash Back Credit Card. Even if you cancel your existing Citi Cash Back Card, there’s a 12-month window before you become eligible for the MoneySmart reward. Here are the specifics.
What is a Qualifying Spend for Citibank?
- Here’s the thing, there’s now a spend requirement for all Citibank promotions. This means, in order to qualify for the reward, you need to use your new card on a qualifying retail transaction. If you’re wondering what you should spend it on to meet this spend criteria, you can’t go wrong with food purchases. Do take note that there are exceptions, and we’ve outlined them here.
