As of September 22, 2019, Citi is removing a wide swath of benefits from most of (likely all) its credit cards. Most of the perks being discontinued are readily available in some form with other travel rewards credit cards, so it’s shocking to see Citi take an ax to so many benefits at once.

The biggest hit for most of us with Citi credit cards is the end of Citi® Price Rewind, which was an easy way to put money back in your pocket.

Citi Credit Cards Losing Perks

If you log into your Citi card benefits page you should get a pop-up detailing the benefits your card is losing. This is the message I got for the American Airlines AAdvantage MileUp℠ Card and the Citi Rewards+℠ Card:

These changes look like they’re impacting most (if not all) Citi cards. If your Citi card has any of these benefits they’ll be going away on September 22, 2019:

  • Worldwide car rental insurance
  • Trip cancellation & interruption protection
  • Worldwide travel accident insurance
  • Citi® price rewind
  • Trip delay protection
  • Baggage delay protection
  • Lost baggage protection
  • 90 day return protection
  • Roadside assistance dispatch service
  • Travel & emergency assistance

Your coverages will still apply to purchases made before September 22nd, so you’ll be able to file claims after that date. But the roadside dispatch and travel & emergency assistance won’t be available after September 22nd.

These perks are even being removed from the Citi Prestige, which is also losing medical evacuation and missed event ticket protection. And, according to The Points Guy, the Citi Dividend and Citi Double Cash cards will be losing extended warranty and damage & theft purchase protection.

If you’re looking for a card that will have travel coverages or rental car insurance beyond September 22, 2019, check out these guides:

Keep in mind, that many of the Citi cards listed in the above guides will likely be losing those perks this fall.

This is rather alarming information! Does “all Citi cards” also include the AAdvantage cards issued? That would have serious impact for me. Thanks.

Author

Yes, I had the pop-up listing benefits that are ending for my AA Platinum Select card.

My iPad said hated, but I meant if you have purchased already the travel………

It’s not staying for prestige or any card.

What happens if you hated purchased flight and travel already with Citi prestige for next June 2020 and then there is trip interruption. Is it still covered as your purchase was made now?

Author

Yes, any purchases made before September 22, 2019, will have coverage and you’ll still be able to file a claim after that date.

I have a feeling it will stay for the Prestige. Not the other citi cards though.

Author

That would make sense, but right now it looks like people with the Prestige card are getting a pop-up detailing the benefits that are being removed from their card on September 22nd.

Question:

Does anyone know what happened to the Barclay’s World Elite Arrival Card ? It is one of my favorites, but seems to have disappeared !

Thanks for any info you can find !

Author

You’re right, Barclays has taken down applications for that card, not sure if or when it will return.
