Citi Double Cash Card Changes As of March 2022

Some changes are coming to the Citi® Double Cash Card as of this spring. For most people the implications here shouldn’t be huge, but I’d still say these are positive developments overall.

Why the Citi Double Cash Card is awesome

For those not familiar with the Citi Double Cash Card (review), the no annual fee card offers 1% cash back when you make a purchase, and 1% cash back when you pay for that purchase.

What makes this card so great is that in conjunction with a card earning ThankYou points, like the Citi Premier® Card (review), the cash back rewards can be converted into ThankYou points. This conversion happens at the rate of one cent per point, meaning you can earn 2x Citi ThankYou points per dollar spent, which I value at a 3.4% return. That makes this one of the best cards for everyday spending.

Citi Double Cash Card changes as of March 2022

Changes are coming to the Citi Double Cash Card as of late March 2022. Here are the details:

Currently there’s a $25 minimum to redeem rewards, while there will soon be no minimum cash back balance required to redeem rewards; this is good for those who have the card but don’t spend all that muchThe card will earn ThankYou points rather than cash back; that means you’ll earn one ThankYou point when you make a purchase, and one ThankYou point when you pay for that purchaseYou’ll continue to have the option to redeem rewards as cash back at the same rate, but you’ll also have access to other Citi ThankYou redemption options, including for gift cards, for booking flights and hotels, and more

For those maximizing rewards, the implications here are fairly limited:

While the Citi Double Cash Card will earn ThankYou points, those points can’t be converted into airline miles or hotel points unless you have a “premium” card earning ThankYou points in conjunction with itAside from being able to transfer points to airline & hotel partners, most other Citi ThankYou redemptions offer at most one cent of value per point, in which case you’re better off just getting cash that you can spend however you’d likeIn theory this could be useful if you wanted to downgrade another card earning Citi ThankYou points as this would allow you to maintain your points, though the points still expire 60 days after you close an account, and there’s not really any benefit to keeping those points rather than cashing them out

Bottom line

Changes are coming to the Citi Double Cash Card as of late March 2022. Ultimately I’d say these adjustments are more about marketing than anything else. The card will earn ThankYou points rather than cash rewards, though those ThankYou points can be redeemed at the same rate as before towards statement credits, cash back, etc.

I suppose the goal is to market this as a more versatile card that can earn travel and other rewards, rather than just a cash back card. This seem to be about better integrating the Citi Double Cash into the ThankYou ecosystem, though you still won’t be able to transfer points to ThankYou partners unless you also have another premium card earning ThankYou points.

What do you make of these Citi Double Cash Card changes?

Moseley’s body was found on Jan. 26 in Stockbridge, Georgia, a representative for the Henry County Police Department said. He was found inside a locked vehicle with a gunshot wound to the side of his face and a handgun in his lap, according to a police report shared with Nexstar.

Moseley, who portrayed one of the two zombies that Michonne (Danai Gurira) kept as leashed “pets” in the earlier seasons of the series, had also appeared in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Attack of the Southern Fried Zombies” and HBO’s “Watchmen” series, among other television and film projects.

Moseley was also mourned by friend and talent agent Tabatha Minchew of Established Artists.

“I love you @mosesmoseley we had so many amazing years of friendship together always had so much fun together,” Michew wrote on Instagram. “I am glad you were part of our family for so long I just wish we had longer. You will be deeply missed. #RIP.”

The investigation into Moseley’s passing is ongoing, police say.
