Citi Entertainment is an entertainment access program available to Citi credit card and Citibank Debit Card customers. Citi cardmembers get special access to purchase tickets to thousands of events, including presale tickets and exclusive experiences to the year’s most anticipated concerts, sporting events, arts and culture experiences.
2. Do I need to be a Citi credit card or Citibank Debit Card customer to purchase tickets or get access to events on the Citi Entertainment website?
While anyone can view the Citi Entertainment website, you must use a Citi credit card which displays the Visa or Mastercard logo or a Citibank Debit Card which displays the Mastercard logo to purchase tickets or access complimentary offers. In most instances, the Citi credit card or Citibank Debit Card account number will be verified during the purchase transaction, redemption process, or at the event.
3. I am not a Citi customer yet. Can I still get access to the presale tickets?
It's not too late! Please visit here to apply for the Citi Custom Cash Card online. If you are instantly approved, request instant access to your card. Please make sure to write down your temporary account details and store them in a safe place. The first six digits of your temporary card number (your BIN number) will be your passcode to provide you with the opportunity to access Citi Presale tickets after the Verified Fan process. The tickets must be purchased with your Citi credit card or Citibank Debit Card.
4. I forgot to write down my temporary card details after I was approved for the Citi Custom Cash Card. Can I find those numbers again?
No. If you apply online and are approved for the Citi Custom Cash Card and request instant access to your credit card details, you only have one opportunity to write down your temporary account information. Access to account information will not be available again until the physical card arrives in the mail, which may take 7-10 days.
5. If I am approved for instant access to my card through temporary account details, do I have access to my full credit limit?
It depends. Most customers who receive instant access to their credit card details can access a portion of their full credit limit immediately. This temporary line ranges from $500 - $2,000. Once you have the physical card in hand, you will have access to the full credit line.
6. In addition to getting access to presales from Citi Entertainment, what else should I know about the Citi Custom Cash Card?
The Citi Custom Cash Card automatically adapts to cardmembers' ever-changing spending needs, rewarding them with 5% cash back on their top eligible spend category-ranging from live entertainment to restaurants and select travel plus more-each billing cycle up to the first $500 spent, and 1% cash back on all other purchases. Earning cash back with Citi Custom Cash is easy, with no need for cardmembers to manually select or enroll categories on a periodic basis; instead, the card automatically adjusts to where their spending is trending.
