Citi Prestige changes as bad as they sound?
My July 3 Citi Prestige card statement has this notice:
The following is a summary of changes that are being made to your card benefits. Effective September 22, 2019, Worldwide Car Rental Insurance, Trip Cancellation & Interruption Protection, Worldwide Travel Accident Insurance, Trip Delay Protection, Baggage Delay Protection, Lost Baggage Protection, Medical Evacuation, Citi Price Rewind, 90 Day Return Protection, and Missed Event Ticket Protection will be discontinued and will no longer be provided for purchases made on or after that date. Coverage for purchases made before that date will continue to be available, and you may continue to file for benefits in accordance with the current benefit terms. Roadside Assistance Dispatch Service and Travel & Emergency Assistance will be discontinued and will not be available on or after September 22, 2019. We are making these changes so that we can continue providing the key benefits that our customers use and value most at no additional cost. This change requires no action on your part. If you wish to cancel your card due to these changes, please call the number on the back of your card by January 1, 2020, to receive a prorated refund of your annual fee.
Am I correct in interpreting that as the card is losing basically all travel protection benefits?
Doug, that is correct unfortunately.
