Goodbye Citi Diamond Preferred Credit Card, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

The Citi Diamond Preferred card and I have been going steady for more than 6 years, and I was very happy with the card, we had a great time together going on vacation and spending time and money on great enjoyable products such as new computers, TVs, and other life enhancing appliances and toys.  When my son was injured as a toddler, you (Citi Diamond Preferred Credit Card) were there to help me cover the cost.

So when I say that you were a gem (a diamond to be exact), it was no understatement.

Unfortunately, you changed your colors on me (from Black to Blue), and the way that you’ve been treating me, well, I can no longer tolerate!

It pains me that after 6 solid years, you now treat me like someone new just coming through the door to your house.  The fact that you now only reward me 1% (unlike the max of 5% when you were a diamond card) for the times that we spend money together.

After numerous calls to you trying to straighten our relationship out, you just bounced me around having people speak for you instead of you talking yourself, is very irratating.  My last attempt to resolve our spat, involved you transfering me to talk to people from Europe (I think), Asian, India and some other represenative that I couldn’t identify because they (mistakenly?) hung up by accident?

I’ve been good to you, Citi Diamond Preferred Credit Card, even writing love letters to and about you in “My Best Credit Card: Citi Diamond Preferred”  and “Citicard Diamond Preferred Card Update“. 

I’ve always paid you back after borrowing money from you, and always within a month’s time frame!  I’ve proudly showed off your black sleek looks to those that comment on what a cool card you were!  I really thought you had it going on in during those particular moments!

But the way you turned colors on my and the way you treat me like someone new, I can’t stand anymore.  So goodbye, we are no longer going steady and I will drop you after a few months, just enough time to get your out of my system!

Good day Citi, I wish you well…

  1. If all you did was pay them back every month, then you were a bad customer. They want to make money off you. I am not at all pleased with the banks currently. They got a great deal from the government bailout and treat customers with disdain now.

  2. “I’ve always paid you back after borrowing money from you, and always within a month’s time frame!”

    – Not going to win over a CC with that stat

  3. Any card from Citi or BofA I wouldn’t trust for the fear of this exact thing!

    I do have a chase card – so far so good! No guarantees though.

    • Drat, I was really going for funny 🙁

      I’ll have to keep working at it… Sometimes, such things happen. I think something is one thing, but it’s comes across in another way…
