The days of how great the Citi Prestige card is are over. The loss of Admirals Club was a big deal but today I confirmed with Citi that the three free rounds of golf would also be eliminated. Personally, this is the only reason I justified paying the $350 Citi Gold reduced annual fee. I easily could find green fees that surpassed this amount in addition to cashing in the $250 travel credit.
Without this perk disappearing, I have no reason to hold onto the card and am annoyed that I paid the fee this year. I have yet to golf and my schedule doesn’t look promising. Time to call and see if there are any retention offers to make up for this big loss.
