Citi Price Rewind: How to Save Money On Your Purchases

Citi Price Rewind is a valuable perk that gets you the lowest price on your Citi card purchase. Unlike other purchase protection programs, Citi is relatively easy to use and automated online. 

What is Citi Price Rewind?

Citi Price Rewind is an automated price protection service offered to Citi cardholders. When you make a qualifying purchase with your Citi credit card, Citi automatically does a 60-day search for a lower price on your purchases. 

If Citi finds a lower price, then they'll refund you the difference in price.

How Citi Price Rewind works

  1. Make a purchase and save your receipt. Login to Citi and search for the item in the Citi Price Rewind database. Select the item and upload the purchase receipt. If you don't see your exact item in the database, you can submit a benefit request online. 
  2. Citi will search for a better price for 60 days from your date of purchase. Citi will notify you via email if they find anything. 
  3. If Citi finds a better price, they may refund the price difference to your account.
