What is The Citibank Account?
It's a Citibank account Pricing Package that offers Interest or Regular Checking —plus free services including online bill payment.
Here's a quick rundown:
Balance $100 minimum opening deposit. To avoid monthly fees, you need to maintain a $6,000 combined average balance — an easy goal to reach. Why? Because so many accounts go toward it: Checking, Savings, CDs, Money Market, Lines, Loans, Mortgage and Brokerage (to qualify, accounts must be linked to your ATM/Debit Card.) Monthly Fee None if you meet the required balance. Otherwise, the fee is $9.50 for Regular Checking and $12 for Interest Checking (it's $12.50 for Regular Checking and $15 for Interest Checking in CA, NV, FL, IL, DC, VA and MD). Checks Free if you meet the required balance. If not, $.50 per check. ATM Use Free unlimited use of Citibank ATMs. Use of non-Citibank ATMs is also free if you meet the required balance. If not, $1.50 per use. Fee Rebates Save up to $24 a year just by using Electronic Bill Payment or Automatic Deductions! Free Services Online bill payment, online bank statements, online check images, e-mail & wireless banking alerts.

If you are ever (even 7 years ago) participated in any CitiBank checking promotion in the past, you will not easily be awarded for this.

Why is this? I always thought this would work as long as you had canceled your previous accounts before the new promotion starts? What makes you say that?

What makes you say that?Because Citi has been known to have a loooonnnnnngggg memory, when they want to. And checking account promos is one of those times they want to. Its been noted in numerous Citi promo threads in the past.
