Beware Of Using Citi Credit Cards On Financial Related Items

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 9:03 AM
A FW member described the problem he had when he used his Visa Citi credit card to pay for an online education course. Citi charged him as if it were a cash advance with $20 in fees.

Based on what others have reported in that thread, it appears Citi now classifies anything remotely related to finance as a cash advance. This might have been due the widespread use of Citi credit cards being used to fund bank accounts and earn rewards.
