Recently the citi PPE went through some changes and now it is called citi Premier Thankyou card. Usually my annual fee gets charged every September. When I called to activate this new card, the csr mentioned that I will be charged $75 this April 10. I really don't understand how they can change the annual fee date? She confirmed that is what showing in their system and hence I have to make a payment by April 10. I am having this citi PPE card since 2007, but I am not using this anymore and not to pay the annual fee. Hence, I'd like to cancel this card. By canceling, I will loose my history in my credit report? 4 years is a long time and hence I don't want to cancel for the annual fee. Is there a way around it to keep the card and not pay the annual fees? I remember vaguely that if i convert the card from citi PPE to just PP, they will not charge the annual fee. I am not sure whether it is still applicable. Any thoughts?
