According to numerous reports on Reddit, Citi will no longer allow account funding with a credit card. Instead, you’ll have to fund your initial deposit with another method, like a mobile check, or over the phone with a checking account and routing number.

That said, new account holders can still earn 50,000American Airlines miles (or 40,000 Citi ThankYou points) when they open a Citigold checking account by March 31, 2016 and meet certain requirements. This is technically a targeted offer, so check out this post for all the details.
Great deals don’t usually last long. But I’ll be sure to let you know when there’s a new one!
