Citi Price Rewind is a feature of Citibank credit cards that scours the internet to (hopefully) save you money by finding a lower price on items you’ve purchased and registered with Citi Price Rewind. According to the website, nearly 124,000 refunds were issued in the first half of 2016, totaling over $3,000,000. You can receive refunds for up to $500 per item, and the maximum refund you can receive in a year is $2,500. It’s a very straightforward process. Charge your purchase(s) to your Citi credit card, submit a tracking ticket, and Citi will start looking for lower prices for the next 60 days. At the end of the 60 days, you’ll be refunded the price difference if a lower price was found.
Submitting Your Claim
The easiest way to get started is by visiting www.citipricerewind.com and logging in to your account. Enter the name of an item you purchased and any potential results will appear. Try to be as precise as possible so your search results really narrow down. This may be a little difficult with clothes because there are so many different styles. They even go by sizes. I bought a few pairs of Dockers recently, and I had a tough time trying to narrow down the exact pairs.
Once you’ve found your item, click on the Start Tracking button. You’ll be taken to another page that asks you to enter a few details of your purchase, like the price (not including sales tax), the date of purchase, the store you made the purchase, and how you’d like to receive any potential refund.
When you’re finished, click the Start a Price Rewind button and you’re all set. The system will do the rest.
I haven’t submitted claims for too many items but I should be more diligent about that because there really are a lot of items that are eligible. From video games to baby shampoo or Fitbit trackers and accessories, there are more opportunities to get some money back than you might think.
So far, my only claims are for my Dockers and for a Blu-Ray of Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. I bought it on sale at Best Buy for $14,99. I set it and forgot about it for 60 days. I recently checked the status and it looks like the Price Rewind was successful. It found a cheaper price at Walmart.
Although my refund is only for three cents, the Price Rewind worked. It was easy and it saved me time by not trying to find a lower price by myself. If you’ve used this benefit, what were your search results?
