Credit Cards that withdrawal points when cancelled.

  1. Kara

    Hello,

    I’d love for someone to verify my information on which credit cards withdrawal points/miles earned through signup bonus once you cancel the card.

    Cards that withdrawal points/miles on cancellation of card.
    -Citi Thank You Premier
    -Delta Amex
    -Delta Business Amex

    Cards that Do NOT withdrawal on cancellation of card.
    -Citi American Airlines
    -SPG Amex
    -Marriott Chase

    Many thanks for confirming.

    [USER=1325]@Kara[/USER] none of the cards take back your sign up bonus just because you cancel your card (unless of course there is fraud or some other extenuating circumstance).

    However, most bank currencies like thank you points, ultimate rewards points, membership rewards points, etc require you to have a card that earns those points open to maintain your balance and it is forfeited if you only have a single card associated with that account and close it. To avoid this you can transfer points to a transfer partner before you close your account, downgrade your card to a no fee version like the Citi preferred or open another card in the same family like Citi Prestige.

    For the other cards that deposit your rewards directly into a partner program every month you will usually lose rewards on any spend you’ve done in your current statement but everything else should be safe.
