To cancel a Citi Premier credit card, call customer service at 1 (800) 950-5114 or log in to the Citibank website or mobile app and click Chat with Us to view your options. Cardholders can also cancel an account in person at a Citibank branch, or by mail.
Be aware that if there’s a balance remaining on the canceled account, you will still need to make at least the minimum payment every month until the balance is paid in full. In addition, canceling your credit card will forfeit any unused points if you don’t redeem them within 60 days after you cancel the card. You will also need to update the payment method for any recurring charges linked to your Citi Premier card.
