Citi Price Rewind - Save up to $250 on Holiday Shopping


Have you started holiday shopping yet? It’s predicted that this year holiday spending will increase 3.5 to 4 percent over last season, which would put the total consumer spending at $920 to $925 billion.

As usual, consumers will be hoping to rack up the sales to get a great discount. But what happens if you already made a purchase and see a better price elsewhere? Sure, you can head back into the holiday rush to return your purchase, but you’ll waste precious time and gas money to do so.

Citi has come up with a solution for cardmembers with its Citi Price Rewind program.

Citi Price Rewind – Save Up to $250 this Shopping Season

As part of Citi’s complimentary card benefits, you can comparison shop after you’ve already purchased an item. Here’s how it works:

  • Make a purchase on your Citi credit card.
  • Take your new purchase home and register it with Citi Price Rewind search retailers’ sites for a lower price.
  • Citi Price Rewind will keep an eye on your items. If it finds a lower price during a 30-day period, you can request a refund online, by fax or by mail.

Things to Remember While You Shop

This is a great program for the in-and-out shopper. Don’t like fighting the crowds? Get in, make your purchase, and get home fast. But it’s important to remember a few things before you leave to shop:

  • Not all purchases are covered. Like boats. You can’t get a Price Rewind on a purchase of a boat. See all coverage limitations here.
  • Prices on covered items are tracked for 30 days from the original purchase date, so make sure to start comparison shopping soon after you buy.
  • Citi Price Rewind only tracks online prices, not in-store prices.
  • Refunds are limited to $250 per item and $1,000 per calendar year.
  • Business credit card purchases are not eligible for Citi Price Rewind.

Don’t have a Citi card? Here are a few recommendations:

Citi Simplicity Card – This card is good for transferring current credit card debt; it comes with 0% APR on purchases and balance transfers for 21 months. After that, the variable APR will be 12.99% – 22.99% based on your creditworthiness. It’s also annual fee-free. The average approved credit score is 733 and the lowest approved is 653.

  1. Looks like a nice FREE service for Citi cards this holiday season. I’m a deal seeker, so it’s nice to know I can buy an item when I find it and worry about the price later. I hate bouncing from store to store looking for a lower price. Sometimes, you find the lower price but no stock. I wonder how good Citi is at finding lower prices…I’ll find out if they are better than me!
