My statement closed last night and I just got the PDF. I can confirm all my rent payments made through Plastiq on my last Citi AT&T Access More statement earned 3X Citi ThankYou points. Even the ones made after July 22nd.
The only things that didn’t earn 3X coded as utility payments… which Citi has always said will earn 1X anyway.
The other payments are coding as “Misc Government Services.”
I’m not sure what this means, but it looks like 3X is alive and well!
Citi Plastiq 3X is still around

Reader Amar confirmed on August 8th that his mortgage payment earned 3X as well.
Further, I made a rent, mortgage, and HOA payment – all earned 3X.
Interestingly, a student loan payment I made on my new Citi Diamond Preferred also coded as “Misc Government Services.”
I made the payment this way to avoid paying interest until 2019. But that it coded the same way leads me to believe some student loan payments will earn 3X as well. Previously, these payments coded as “Education” (which makes sense).
Somewhere along the line, the coding changed. And while I’d say to keep an eye on it, it seems 3X is good to go – for now at least.
Just wanted to share the newest data point. Let me know if it works for you, too!
