Citi AT&T nixes 3X spend

“A change to your ThankYou® Points.” That was the subject heading of an email sent today to AT&T Access More credit card holders.  The email goes on to state that, as of July 22, 2017, the card will no longer earn 3 points per dollar for “the purchase or reloading of gift cards or on rental and real estate payments.”

The full text of the email reads, as follows:

Hi, Greg. The categories eligible to earn 3x ThankYou Points for purchases made with your AT&T Access More card are being updated. Beginning July 22, 2017, you’ll only receive 1 point, not 3x points, for every $1 spent online on the purchase or reloading of gift cards or on rental and real estate payments.

Please note, you’ll still earn 3x points on every $1 spent on purchases made online at eligible retail and travel websites, including department and warehouse websites, online travel agencies and airline websites.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 1-855-488-6642 (TDD/TTY: 1-800-325-2865).

Ever since Chase stopped giving 3X for mortgage and rent payments through Plastiq (See: Is Plastiq 3X Dead?), I’ve been wondering whether those payments made with the AT&T Access More card would still work for 3X.  This email seems to indicate that payments made prior to July 22nd will offer 3X, but later payments will offer just 1X.  Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if even the earlier payments don’t earn 3X.  We’ll see.

And, for those who found designed a way to still get $500 cards from GiftCardMall, or those who still have Buxx-like reloadable cards, this seems like a “last call” announcement.

Interesting that the July 22nd date matches the date that our Citi Prestige cards turn into turkeys.
