No More Funding Citi Checking With A Credit Card

Citi has reportedly stopped allowing you to fund checking accounts with a credit (or debit) card! This is really bad news because up until now, it was possible to get the bonus on a Citigold checking account AND also get rewards by funding the account with a credit card up to $100K!
