Default Citi bank is making restrictions on gun purchases

https://www.infowars.com/citigroup-i...ent-gun-sales/

I usually don't read infowars but here is a link that includes a letter from the President of CITI.

In my opinion - this is nuts!

I am not sure how many people have a credit card that are not 21 years old. But there are plenty that are over 21 and want to purchase "high capacity" magazines. (8 rounds or more)

Feeling disgusted...

It will be interesting to see how the bank defends itself against providing services to law abiding customers. If a bakery can get crucified for refusing services based on personal beliefs, why wouldn't a bank alao be subjected to such scrutiny?

I’ve owned an Exxon gas card for almost 10 years—one of my longest histories with a credit company. The card is through Citi.

Cancelling it tonight! I use that card every time I fill up. I don’t pay interest as I pay it off but nonetheless they are losing a customer!

Just called and cancelled the Exxon card. Member since 2010. The representative didn’t sound surprised—I guess she’s had that conversation a few times today.

They are gonna miss my 815 credit score!

Sounds like they are forcing the stores that use their card not that your card won't work to buy them. So like field and stream their store card is sponsored by citi.

I wonder if bass pro uses them too.

Think I will try as well. I donít need any more mags but donít mind having a few more. If this is in fact the case of restricting my purschase, I will close my 26k credit line that I really donít use anyhow!

Yes it will work. Your not understanding what they are doing.

They are pushing the stores that they sponsor to change their store policies they cant program your card to know if its buying a mag or AR. See below stores not affiliated with Citi

The creditor and issuer of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Rewards Visa Card is U.S. Bank National Association, pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc.

Your ScoreRewards Credit Card or ScoreRewards Mastercardģ is issued by Synchrony Bank. The Synchrony Bank Privacy Policy governs the use of the ScoreRewards Credit Card or ScoreRewards Mastercardģ. The use of this site is governed by the use of the Synchrony Bank Internet Privacy Policy, which is different from the privacy policy of ****'S Sporting Goods.

Please accept this request form as my application for a Cabela's CLUB Visaģ credit card with Capital One.

Cabela's uses Bank of America



link below is a list of stores they sponsor but I don't see any sporting good stores so Im really not sure how they think this will work.

When a place that depends on your money being stored there tells you what you can and cant spend it on, pretty good sign they dont want your money anymore.

So its not just stores that use their credit cards.


Citigroup (C), one of the country's biggest banks, says it will no longer do business with those who don't adhere to its new policies on selling firearms.

Citi will require its clients to refrain from selling guns to those who have not passed a background check or who are not yet 21. It also prohibits them from selling bump stocks and high-capacity magazines.

The policy applies to bank customers who offer Citi-branded credit cards, borrow money or use other Citi services.

How in the hell can one business tell another business how to run their business?

All they are is a pass through/processor. Iíd tell them to pound sand.

This is what it is coming to.
The other side preaches tolerance.... as long as you agree with them.
Laws do not not matter...emotions rule.
Time to start reinforcing with folks who we DO spend money with. If they are not pro2A, we need to show our money speaks also. What else do we have in this kind of onslaught? Something like operation chokehold taking place.

They're offering a credit/reward system through that biz. They're not telling them how to run their company. But they can certainly dictate who or what qualifies to go on their credit line. Whether or or not I or the biz agrees with it. Cabela's or whoever can certainly suspend their use and seek an alternative

Yes they should. That was not my argument. Your other post is just backwards, whether or not I agree with it. Cabela's is the pass through not citi. And anything they said about it would be them telling someone else how to run their business. They are free to drop them (or maybe not contractually) as I said

Iíve been with Bank of America for 20 years and donít even have an ATM or bank in the city I live in. I would close my account tomorrow if I didnít have to cancel everything and start over.

I opened an account 5 or 6 years ago with Capital One because I needed a few thousand in cash that day and I had no bank to go to.
