I was induced to open a Citibank CitiGold checking account with a bonus offer. The bonus offered XXXX AAdvantage points in exchange for opening a CitiGold account and scheduling two bill payments from the newly opened account.After enrolling with the promotion code, I contacted Citi and received confirmation that the offer was attached to my account. I confirmed with Citi that I fulfilled all terms of the offer and to expect my bonus on or before XXXX XXXX, 2016.
On XXXX XXXX, 2016, I did not receive my bonus points as promised.
On XXXX XXXX, 2016, I went on chat with XXXX and explained that I did not receive my points. XXXX informed me that my bonus was denied for the following reason : ” There was not a AAdvantage Points promotion offered in conjunction with the opening of your account. ” Even though I have been assured by Citi that I met all requirements to receive my bonus, the bank is now refusing to honor their end of the agreement.
Citi must credit my account immediately or additional steps will be taken to collect my promised bonus. I am extraordinarily unhappy and suspect that Citi routinely and systematically defrauds their customers. They have also charged me two months worth of service charge fees because I kept my account open due to Citi lying to me, so I believe I would receive the AAdvantage bonus points.
