Citi Forward Credit Card cardholders, odds are you’ve already received an e-mail or mail urging you towards converting your Citi Forward to a Citi ThankYou Preferred. Well, as a gesture, you’ll receive a $50 Bonus once you activate the new card and spending $500 now and through April 30, 2018. Just a quick recap on the ThankYou Preferred, the card earns 2x the ThankYou points per dollar spent on dining at restaurants and entertainment and 1x the TY point on other purchases. Points do not expire and you’ll be able to earn unlimited ThankYou points, all for no annual fees attached.
Editor’s Note: This is a targeted offer. Therefore it is not for all cardholders; YMMV. Some of you will receive a email or snail-mail with no mention of the bonus. It could be worth calling a Citi rep to see if you can get your hands on this bonus.

The Citi Forward Credit Card was a card with a legacy: Essentially 5x the points for every $1 spent at restaurants and on books, movies and music, however, the category was removed last year (June 4, 2016) and replaced with 2x ThankYou Points per $1 spent on dining, bookstore and entertainment. I believe the card still gives you 100 TY Points per month that you make your bill payments on time. With regards to the product conversion, you shouldn’t really expect your 24 month’s clock to reset.
