New Citibank Checking Account Bonus - Free Plane Ticket


Citibank has been emailing people a new checking account promotion. They're offering a free round-trip plane ticket when you open a Citibank EZ Checking account, fund the account with $1,500 by 7/31/06 and sign up for direct deposit or make two bill payments per month at for six consecutive months. You can apply by phone: 1-800-374-9500 and you must mention offer code: CECA.

Credit for finding this deal goes to this SlickDeals thread. The thread has an image of the official offer. This FW thread has info on this same offer along with the small print. The offer seems to be limited to Citi Card members.

This could be a good deal especially if you were already planning to open the Citibank's 4.75% e-Savings Account (post), but you have to be careful with Citibank. Many have had trouble receiving the reward from Citibank's $200 checking account/credit card offer that came out last January.

There's also a $200 bonus available. It's the same as what I had posted on last December. This new promotion is good through 7/31/06. The new promo code is CD3J. Refer to this SlickDeal thread.

This deal is valid only for Citi Credit Card holders.

You can however, open a new Citi Credit card at the same time and get this deal.

And now they get a new plane, when will the greed and BAD business practice end, no ethics at Citibank. Did they miss the one when the auto CEO showed up in their private jets??Send the plane back and audit their books, why can't they fly like we do?

From Wall Street to Main Street and everywhere in between, stay up-to-date with the latest news. Forwarded Message: Citibank bailout Citibank bailoutMonday, January 26, 2009 6:41 AMFrom: MGDStrat@aol.comTo: scoop@huffingtonpost.comI would ask the President to call me before he gives any money to Citibank, they are and practice unethical business. Their lawyers lied to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, wrongfully terminated me while out on workers comp and all because I wanted to put my daughter first. Now Citibank ask for bail out money from our goverm=nment yet when I wrote to over 200 senators and government people I got no help. They broke California labor codes in the process of firing me, while I was ill. My attorney made over 200,000.00 and checks were sent out to about 2000 people. They want your help but no one would help me and all though they wrongfully terminated. There is greed at Citibank and they knowingly gave mortgages to people who didn't qualify by pumping up their income and now they want my tax dollars. My attorney said firing me cost them about 3.5 million and I don't feel they should get or deserve the bail out money. My story is on line, and President Bush's office never did reply and the people that did just kept passing the buck. Fell free to call me for more details 831-236-0112, or look at the case filed in Monterey Superior court. I lost everything because of them, bad manager Jeff Ursino and they didn't even follow their own firing Stratford, fired via UPS by CitibankMy husband voted for you and had I voted I would have voted for you. I didn't vote because when I tried to get help from people I had voted for no one helped, they say to write your congressman for help and they don't help you, but Citibank asks for bail out money and they get help. where is the justice, what about me, Jeff the plumbers wife? Citibank made the list of the best 100 companies for working mothers to work at, yet they fired me for putting my daughter's needs first! Where is the justice? Why should we bail them out? I prayed for you all day and watched on my TV, stunning, we are truly blessed to have you. My favorite photo/moment is the thumbs up by your beautiful daughter, which I am sure you also put her needs first. Thanks for caring about our country, God Bless you and your family, may he keep you safe and happy.
