    This Make my dream comes true.

    It was quick, easy and seamless for existing CitiBank customers. I liked the discount on rates that you get for already having an account. The money came in extremely fast. The big downside (like most loans) is that it was sold to third party loan servicer so it doesn't stay under the Citizens umbrella

    I guess Citi doesn't want my business

    I opened Citi checking and savings accounts online and used EFT to transfer $15,000 from my local bank. Then a few days after the EFT cleared Citi sent the funds back to my local bank and sent me a letter saying I need to send the funds in a check by mail to their processing center, which I did. They also sent me a debit card and PIN and a welcome letter. Then they closed the account and I can't get anyone in customer service to tell me why. I'm employed and quite wealthy, a homeowner many years at the same address, with a FICO score of 830. I opened the accounts to get the $400 bonus, and intended to satisfy their requirements. I've wasted hours dealing with clueless customer service and equally unhelpful 'personal banker' representatives. Very frustrating. I guess Citi doesn't want my business, and from now on they won't get it.

    I will never fall for the "invitations" from Citibank again

    I received an invitation to open a checking account and a savings account and receive $400 opening bonus. Since there is no branch in my area, I opened them online and received confirmation that the opening balances have been received ($100 in C, $1000 in S) then I wired additional $14,000 to savings. Today (2/11) they can only find $100 in checking. After talking to many "specialists" I still have no idea where the funds are. I am going to forget the bonus and close the accounts. I will never fall for the "invitations" from Citibank again!!!

    Citibank refused to refund my dispute charge $350 since 3 month ago

    Citibank refused to refund my dispute charge $350 since 3 month ago. On Nov. 15th, 2018, I saw there is a unrecognized transaction ($350) on day of 10/26/2018 in my credit card ($350). I disputed the charge immediately and Citibank promised me that they will refund that credit to my account within 3-5 business days. However, 3 month later, They are still convincing to wait 3-5 days. I will sue them for $350 and the time and spirit I spent on it.

    There is always a problem with Citibank's stupid website

    There is always a problem with Citibank's stupid website. This week, the bank is conducting maintenance and as a result, I cannot see any of my checks online. An online representative told me that they can send me the image of the check I want to see in 24 to 48 hours but that I can open their e-mail with yet another stupid password. How absurd; 48 hours later I still have not gotten anything. If it was not such a hassle, I would've switched all my banking to Bank of America, which has a superb website.

    BBB Complaint Filed

    BBB Complaint Filed: End of November (for those still following at home). Last response: Feb 13. Okay so after another useless phonemail from Jessica today from some Executive office, she has wasted MY TIME AGAIN to state that they are not changing their decision on their faulty bullcrap addition of Payment Safeguard on MY ACCOUNT with NO PERMISSION despite my OTHER CARD BEING REFUNDED from the last lawsuit. Telling me I opted into this during a card activation is complete garbage. And then you tell me you tried to communicate about it twice years later? BULL.

    My husband and I have had an account here for more than 13 years

    My husband and I have had an account here for more than 13 years. We added a savings account but since I wasn’t with my husband my name wasn’t added. I went into the Elmhurst NY branch to see what I needed to do to get onto the savings and the person I talked to said, "Just bring your husband and yourself and your banking cards." Went in today with everything we needed and waited 2 hours, gave all the information and then got told that they couldn’t do it cause we needed proof of address even though I told them that we never moved. I only have a passport cause I don’t drive so I didn’t bring a utility bill with me. The lady said, "Anything with your name and address," so I showed her my online student loan that had my address and name. And she told me, "No, that isn’t good enough. It has to be government issued or utility." But she was willing to take my cellphone bill.

    I contacted Citi the LiveChat

    I contacted Citi the LiveChat (which they notify you is being recorded, aha) on their website. I asked the representative whether Citi would refund the Global Entry fee on the Citi credit card I have. He said yes and I re-asked couple times to be sure. He re-assured me they would refund the fee, I just have to call Citi. So I went ahead and made the purchase, contacted Citi after the transaction posted, they told me I have to wait for the monthly statement. Contacted them again after the transaction made it to the monthly statement. This time they told me they won't refund it. I let them know a Citi representative I chatted with told me they will and they said they'll open a case/claim with some Citi department that does have access to the chat history.

    Do not get a checking account with Citibank

    Do not get a checking account with Citibank! If you do you will regret it. You have been warned. As of right now there is a "block" on my checking account. I discovered this as I was trying to order food over the weekend. They left me with no access to my funds, no money, no food and no way to pay my bills. When I called they told me that I had to speak to a particular department and they are conveniently closed on the weekend. I was told that my account was restricted because I have another checking account. I was told to have two separate online banking accounts by Citibank. My goal was to have two separate debit cards so that I could use one for spending and my other account for bills. So they have essentially screwed me over because of something one of their representatives told me to do.
