    Hi Do you know if there is any hidden courier/delivery charges for the trolley bag that they never mention in the website? If yes, any idea how much is it?

    Jessy ~ I think they will not charge for the delivery, because there was not mentioned in their terms and conditions. If they charge, then I will straight away cancel this card and make complaint to citibank HQ. Haha.

    Hi, did you finally get the bag ?
    My wife also applied for the card, it got approved during end of November, but the card took a long time to arrive, after many calls to Citibank, it arrived only mid of January, and after more than 2 weeks, still didn’t get the bag. When call, they said she will get the bag soon (which means she’s entitled for the bag), and after 1 week wait, still never arrive. Then when call again, also same thing, bag will arrive, but still never arrive. After another week, call Citibank, they said she was not entitled for the bag as it was only for the 1st “157” customers, and is only entitled to the RM 50 AirAsia voucher. Even just now my wife called and argued saying during the earlier phone calls they never mentioned anything about this, and all they mentioned was the bag will be sent soon, will arrive soon, but now they say no bag at all. My wife said she doesn’t want the voucher, but want the bag, if not cancel the card and complain at the HQ.
    Now when i read your post, and went to the link (, i found out that its for first 700 customers.
    Really fed-up with Citibank la on these petty issues.

    Hai Durai,
    In my case, they told me I am eligible to get the bag when I first called them at December 2008, and I wait until mid of January 2009 and call Citibank again for the bag, then they told me the bag is out of stocks, replace with the e-vouchers. Then I straight away requested for the card cancellation. Last month I have just returned the card to them and double checked the confirmation of my card cancellation. So disappointed with Citibank.

    I just received Benetton Trolley Beg from Citibank on 22 April 2009. My application submit on 4/3/09 at Air Asia Website when I see the Citibank promotion.

    I think the campaign still not end because I just received SMS from Citibank on 15/4/09 that Free Benetton Trolley bag still valid for 3 days from SMS date.

    Maybe you can try to apply, SMS AIR to 36700. Ctibank representative will call to you after received your SMS, you just verify with them whether can get the Trolly beg or not. Last time I just told them I must get the trolley beg if not i am not interesed to apply new credit cards.

    I got the trolley bag too. It came about 9 weeks after I got my citibank credit card (processing of the card took less than a week). I responded very quickly after I got the 1st call from Citibank’s representative and upon getting the card, I spend about RM4k (almost maximum). May be that (my sudden response & my expenses using the card) were the reasons why I got the trolley bag. There was no delivery charges. I am very happy with the gift. Thanks to Citibank.

    Stumbled on your website from Google Search as i was looking to know something about credit cards in details. Read the whole article on your site and i must say that me and my husband loved reading your post. So i thought of sharing a tip to all your users: For the lowest discount rates for transactions at a point of sale location, try to avoid typing in the credit cards numbers manually, but rather swipe the credit card with your terminal. A swiped credit card is typically given a lower discount rate per transaction. We bookmarked your website. Thanks alot – Steffi
