This Charter Member will be canceling his card

1

3 months ago I logged into the Citi AT&T Universal Platinum site to change my password. Little did I know that by doing so the site automatically changed my preference from paper mailed statements to paperless. Consequently, after a spotless payment history since 1992 (300+ payments), I was delinquent the last 2 months because I never recieved a mailed statement. I was hit with a late fee and of course interest on my unpaid balance. After unraveling the mystery with a Citi CSR I asked for a waiver of late fees and interest. They indicated they could not. I am now in the market for a replacement provider. Citi does not respect nor cherish customer loyalty.

Writing this for my parents

Stay clear they treat people bad. My parents have had this card since 1999 thier bill is always paid on time and AT&T cancelled thier card because they have not used it for 6 months. They are elderly and disabled so they use this card to buy for the holidays so it is not like they don't use the card just not ever 6 months and this is how this company treats loyal customers.

Great rewards card for AT&T members.

5

I have had this rewards card for about. a year, when I switched back to AT&T last summer. I was offered the chance to get one and have loved it ever since. I mainly use this card for purchases online, for gas and for larger purchases. I like the rates, the rewards program is fanstastic. I also love that it ties in with AT&T and that is a big plus for me. I wish that I had been clued in about it sooner, would of made the switch a lot sooner. I've always had smooth transactions. Checking my balance and spending online has always been easy. Customer service us also top notch. There have been times when I haven't been able to get on the computer to check things , so I have called customer service and they have always been professional and helpful. Customer Service Some of the best phone conversations with cusromer service reps have been through there reps. Always patient and professional. Available Rates Great rates. I've been happy.

The BEST Credit Card Ever!

I am a charter member and have had AT&T Universal MasterCard since the first or second year AT&T issued the card. I use it for all my medical expenses and other big purchases. AT&T along with Citi Bank have without a doubt treated me with great respect and earned my trust. I would be lost with my AT&T Universal Card. THANK YOU AT&T for recognizing your charter members and I feel a sense of pride whenever I see printed on my card. I will be with you for as long as you will have me. Customer Service I have never in all the years as a Charter Member needed Customer Service.

universal card

I've had my card for years, since before Citi bought it, and I've never had a problem. It's accepted everywhere, and the Citi thank you rewards are great. All I have to do is use it, and I get points. I usually use the points for credit on the card, so it's like cash back. A while back I had a problem getting on the website and the people were very concerned and helpful and called me back to make sure it was working again. i can pay the bill online on the day it's due and get it credited right away. I also have a Discover card, but I use the Universal card most of the time. I can't see a reason not to. Customer Service When I had a problem getting on line a while back they were very concerned and helpful and even called me back to make sure it was working and I was able to access my account Available Rates I don't really know how to answer this question because I always pay off my balance, so I'm ranking in the middle because there's not an "I don't know" answer. I don't pay attention to rates because I don't carry a balance.

AT&T Universal Card

I have been a charter member since 1990. This was one of my very first credit cards when everyone else would turn me down. This is without a doubt my prefered card and I use it with knowing it carries a name you can depend on, AT&T! Sure Citibank owns the credit card but the name belongs to AT&T and you can bet they will not allow that name to be comprimised. Here it is almost 23 years later and I still consider this my number one card! So far, Citibank has shown a great deal of respect to this AT&T Universal Card Charter Member. Thank you AT&T and Citibank. Available Rates Some years back my interest rate doubled but because AT&T and Citibank WILL listen to their customers, I sent a complaint and my interest rate has been the lowest of all my credit cards.

I have been a user of AT&T Universal card since it's inception in the early 90's.  I was attracted to the card as an empolyee (now retired).   I have found the service to be outstanding.  I have no experience with disputes and the attraction of the card was no fee.  I do not carry balances so the interest rate is of no concern to me.  the card has gone thru a couple of transitions related to rewards points.  Originally the rewards were ok (not great) and I did manage to get a $100 home depot card yearly with my points.  They did recently change the card awards and it is much less attractive.  However, that is not the reason i have the card.  the AT&T card used to be my primary card but I changed to an AMEX cash back card as my primary so my spending went down considerable.  I use this card where AMEX is not accepted.  I make 75% of my purchases on AMEX and the remaining 25% on the AT&T card.   There fraud protection is excellent.  I had one instance of a vendor compromising my card and they froze my account and opened a new onae and sent a new card.   Overall, it is a good card but not one necessarily with a great rewards program.

They canceled my card after paying on time for over 15 years

I used to love this card...it was the first card I got in college and I have had it for over 15 years.  I have always paid them even when I could not pay others.  This year they gave me the option of paying 29% on my remaining balance to keep the card and continue using it or close the account & pay 10.75% until it is paid off.  I lost my job three times this year and still paid them...I felt this was unfair.  They don't care...I did nothing to them.  Now, since this is my longest standing credit account it is going to significantly lower my credit score when I give the account up, but who wants to pay almost 30% on old balances.

AT&T Universal Card effectively pays 2.5% cashback

5

I have had the AT&T Universal Card for almost two years. Of all my credit cards, it is the one with the lowest APR at 8.24%. If that is not enough of a spectacular feature, it pays an effective rate of cashback of 2.5% when used as directed. The first year, the rate is double as 5%. To get the 2.5%, all you need to do is use it to pay your AT&T bills and then match the total of those payments with an equal total amount in any other purchases.  AT&T provides both my home phone landline and my wireless phone service. My charges amount to more than $100 per month. So, then I take the card to pay for an equal amount in groceries, dining, gas, whatever. If I want to buy more than AT&T bills total, I can go online and pay extra on my phone bills using the Universal Card. This simply generates credit on those bills that will go toward my phone charges in the future. As long as the AT&T total equals the total of the non-AT&T purchases, the cashback I receive instantly on my statement, as an immediate rebate on my balance amounts to 2.5%.  And there is no need to wait for the cashback to add up to $50 or $30 before I get the reward with this card. It is always an instant rebate applied to my credit card balance. It is one of the most lucrative cashback programs for a credit card anywhere.
