They have, however, announced their bonus categories for the current (fall) quarter, which runs from October 1st through December 31st.
As a reminder, Citi (and others) adopted rotating reward categories a few years ago, meaning that you can get 5% cash back on select purchases. The downside is that you have to re-enroll in the program each quarter.
Here are the Fall 2013 bonus categories…
- Best Buy
- Department stores
- Toy stores
Winter 2013: The winter 2013 categories, which ran from Jan 1 – Mar 31, included drugstores, fitness clubs, and purchases from Zappos.com.
Spring 2013: The spring 2013 categories, which ran from Apr 1 – Jun 30, included home furnishing stores and home/garden stores.
Summer 2013: The summer 2013 categories, which ran from Jul 1 – Sep 30, included Hilton hotels & resorts, car rentals, movie theaters, and theme parks.
All other purchases are subject to the standard 1% cash back rewards. While there’s no quarterly cap on bonus purchases, your total cash back (5% bonus or 1% standard) is limited to $300 total per year.
Also, as far as I know, activation is not retroactive. Thus, if you have this card, you should activate it as soon as possible. You can do so from within your card account. I just checked and yes, it’s already possible to enroll for the summer quarter.
