Citibank and AT&T are extending their consumer co-brand credit card portfolio in the United States. The partnership, which currently includes the AT&T Access Card, provides both brands with enhanced visibility while also offering exceptional rewards for cardholders. Here are the details of the Citi AT&T partnership extension.
AT&T-Citi Partnership Offers Everyday Value to Customers
The AT&T Access Card from Citi is a consistently popular rewards credit card thanks to its no annual fee and up to 2X points earned on eligible purchases. The card is also the entry route into the bank’s ThankYou Rewards program, which provides exceptional value for customers looking to transfer rewards points to over 15 airlines, hotels, and other travel partners.
Partnership Extended for Multiple Years
The AT&T Access Card is also front and center in the ongoing, nearly 25-year relationship between Citi and AT&T – a partnership the two brands recently extended. The new multi-year extension seeks to continue to “drive enhanced customer engagement and loyalty and explore additional consumer offerings.”
Both Citi and AT&T hailed the extension in a press release accompanying the news. Scott Frank, Vice President, Intellectual Property, AT&T, believes the partnership provides outstanding value for AT&T customers.
“We have a long history of working closely with Citi to provide innovative credit programs,” he said. “We look forward to the value this renewal will bring for our customers across the U.S. in rewarding them for their everyday purchases and further fostering long-term loyalty.”
The news was equally welcomed by Citibank: “We are delighted to announce a multi-year extension of our nearly 25-year co-brand credit card relationship with AT&T,” said Pam Habner, Head of U.S. Branded Cards and Lending, Citi. “We look forward to continuing to work together to deepen and expand the partnership to deliver meaningful benefits and value to a digitally engaged consumer base.”
Citi, a leading global bank, has approximately 200 million customer accounts and does business in more than 160 countries and jurisdictions. Citibank is the fourth largest bank in the United States by total assets – and the third-largest issuer of credit cards. Over 131 million Citi credit cards are currently circulating, including proprietary, co-branded, and private label credit cards with names like Best Buy, Macy’s, American Airlines, and Expedia.
