So I have a Citibank credit card, and tied to it is a rewards points from ThankYou Rewards. In the past I have received many gift cards from them (you can request custom rewards) for Sportsmans warehouse, cabelas, and midway USA. This week I have a bunch of points again, so I wanted to get a brownells gift card this time. I send int he request, and this is the bullshit I receive back...

HOLY FUCK :eek: you are fucking kidding me right?

so I guess you can not get a gift card for anyplace that sells leather goods, food or any place that is directly connected with killing another being.

That's one more credit card getting cut up. Fuck BofA and fuck Citi. That leaves me with only my USAA card. Hopefully they'll never stoop to pulling that kind of bullshit.

Geez, I don't suppose you can get one for use at the grocery store either then?

The credit industry will be the bane of this country....if the politicians don't kill it first.

I will be calling them Monday to close all my accounts, and move about $200k out of various things with them. I am also getting my Mom to close all of her accounts. Between the 2 of us they will lose about a half million. I hope you guys can help me spread the word. I understand they wont buy guns. I buy all of my supplies from Brownells. Am I no longer allowed to purchase directly using my card? Oh wait....that's right, they will let me use my platinum card with a $35k limit anywhere I want, I just cant get a gift card from them because I will kill another being I am half tempted to go buy a few guns this week on my account prior to closing it, but I don't want to give them a penny more of my business. Who are they? Paypal?

Unfortunatley this is becoming a common practice with almost all bank/credit card companies. It like they think they have some sort of liability invested in what is purchaced through their "rewards" so they feel they have the right to tell the consumer how and on what he/she can spend their money.

My Citi Rewards card just sends me a check when I request it...

Which I then deposit in the bank and spend where ever I want...

Was in not CITI Corp. who supposedly denied transactions for purchases when run through FFLs a while back?

I still can't understand this line....

We are unable to redeem for weapons, ammunition, or anything directly related to the act of killing another being.


Why do the ignorant most always associated guns with killing? The fawking media perhaps?

I guess this is the same mode of thinking that equates owning a gun must mean you're a hunter.

I just told BofA to shove thier Mastercard up thier asses too. Fuckers upped my interest rate from 8.something to almost 28%. I called them up to ask WTF and they said the cardholder agreement states that they can change the rates anytime for any reason. I've never missed a payment, never been late and I have a credit score in the 800's. :confused:

Fuck them.

You serious Clark? You mean any Citi card holder can't order from Brownells?

This world is being consumed by a bunch of whiners. I swear, this story and the one concerning a Rachel Ray tv show assistant suing her for "anorexia bias" are about all I can take this 4th of July.:shaking:

So, anyone know of a 5% cash back on guns/ammo/instruments of destruction credit cards out there?:laughing:

WHAT THE FUCK?

I would send that shit to some half assed decent news source with an appropriately written letter detailing their asshattery and send them a letter in return demanding an apology for implying that you are a murderer because you asked for a reward card/points to Sportsmen's Warehouse. I'd also send a copy to Sportsman's Warehouse (just as an FYI) AND I'd send a few letters to the editor.

Reposted this at black-rifles.com too.

Gonna post this over on ar15.com. They may be kookaid drinkers but they'll love this crap. I'm editing out your last name though Keith.

I've always hated citibank, my mil travel card is with them, customer service sucks.

i hope you can't use your rewards for gas or car parts because they contribute to "killing other beings"

The ARF guys are calling BS, think I'm going to try giving citibank a call on monday and ask for the guy who signed the email. If I get him on the line it might be interesting and fun.

edit: Interesting, a poster over there claims that citibank has refused transactions at CDNN in the past. Another poster says they have a well known anti-gun stance. Seems odd considering their contract with the govt for mil travel cards.

We have had one card for 10 years now. ALWAYS pay in full.
It has a 16k limit on it.
I have had the gun bus running for a year now. Use this card for a lot of my purchases because I like the reqrds they have.
Anyway last month is typical 15k bill shows up. I pay it. Check clears my bank and I go to use the card. Can't its at the limit. Huh?
So I call them. "Yes we received your payment but we are holding it for 20 days"
What? It shows it cleared my bank already.
"Yes but it is our policy to hold checks over 10k for 20 days"
What? You HAVE MY MONEY.
"Its our policy"
Since when.
"Always"
Look at my history, I charge over 10k a month every month for the pst year and this is the first time you have ever held my check.
"Its out policy"
Then why is this the first time.
"I don't know, we must have missed it"
:mad:
