Where’d the Citi AT&T Access More Card Go? Citi Might Be Changing the Bonus Categories and Sign-Up Bonus for This Card

And, it looks like they’re thinking of changing the bonus categories of online shopping & travel, and AT&T purchases, to earn fewer points per $1 spent!

I’ll share what we know so far!

What’s Happening?

Link:   My Review of the Citi AT&T Access More Card

The regular sign-up bonus for the Citi AT&T Access More card is a credit up to $650 towards a new (no-contract) cell phone after spending $2,000 on purchases within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.

That is, when it’s available!

At this point, we don’t know if Citi is discontinuing, or simply updating, this card.

Changes to Bonus Categories?

Although, when I clicked “Next Step” on the application page, I found new rewards terms.  And they’re NOT as good!

Will You Earn Fewer Points in Bonus Categories Soon?

You usually earn 3X Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent at AT&T, online retailers, and travel sites.

But this indicates they may be changing it to 2X Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent in those categories.

I’m not sure if they’re changing the sign-up bonus, or just the bonus categories.  And I do NOT have confirmation of any changes.

What Now?

Many folks used this card to earn a new phone up to $650.  It came in handy during the Christmas season when Discover had an incredible promotion to earn up to 22% cash back on purchases with Apple Pay.

We don’t know if current cardholders will be grandfathered in to the old bonus category rates (like the Citi Forward card).  Or if they’ll have to adjust to earning fewer points.

This was an incredible deal for online shopping.  And for folks who needed a new phone.

Like all good deals, it’s important to jump on them while they’re still available.  I’ll let you know as soon as I have more information!

Bottom Line

It looks like the Citi AT&T Access More card is currently NOT available for new applicants.  And if it comes back, it may have changes to its bonus categories, sign-up bonus, or both.

I found signs that Citi will change the points structure to earn 2X Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent for online travel and shopping, and AT&T purchases.  It used to be 3X Citi ThankYou points per $1 spent in those categories.

I do NOT have confirmation of these changes.  But I’ll let y’all know when I find out more details!

@Mileage Man – Thanks for confirming! Appreciate the follow-up.

Hey , it is still 3x. I got the card last week and I verified with several Citi Reps that the card will earn 3x on AT&T and Retail websites

@physixfan @Kevin – Thanks for clarifying! I found that info when I clicked on another link. And it looks like the card is still not listed on Citi’s website. Perhaps it’s just a glitch. Or maybe they’re updating the card?

I’ll keep an eye on it for sure. Thanks again for sharing!

I don’t know that they would drop it from 3x to 2x, unless they’re getting rid of the “More” version entirely. The regular “ATT Access” offers 2x on the categories with no fee. There’d not be much point in offering a $95 AF version with the same earning potential. So they may just be killing one or the other version.

My mistake… I put the link for no annual fee version in my reddit post… The Access MORE version card still has 3x words on its webpage.
