Should Friends Help Friends Bank At Citi?

If you’re a satisfied Citibank customer you can make up to $500 — yes, $500 — by getting five friends to open new checking accounts there.

You’ll earn $25, $50 or $100 per friend, depending on the type of checking account they choose.

If you're a satisfied Citibank customer you can make up to $500 by getting five friends to open new checking accounts there.

Your friends will receive similar bonuses once they’ve complied with all the rules of Citi’s Member Get Member program.

If, on the other hand, you’re a disgruntled Citibank customer you’d be a pretty awful friend to try and take advantage of this deal.

So here’s the question I guess everyone has to ask: Do friends let friends bank at Citi?

Anyone who answers with a big, enthusiastic “yes,” can enroll in the program at any Citi branch. The major requirement is that you have one of these specific types of checking accounts: EZ, Citibank, Everything Counts or Citigold.

You’ll be given five personalized coupons to pass on to your friends, which they need to present when opening their new checking account at any Citi branch.

It’s not possible to enroll and obtain the coupons online. But you will find all the details about the program at the link above.

    Citibank has one of the worst customer service operations on earth.
    It rivals Microsoft in it’s utter disregard for the the needs & rights of it’s customers.
    There is absolutely no valid justification for this monumental incompetence and greed.
    I would say they should be ashamed, but like so many others in business, they evidently can not afford such mundane attributes.
    By all means, take Citibank for all you can, just don’t afflict your friends please.
