Our Citi Dividend Platinum card stops giving its 1% cash back after we earn $300 in a year. Since rewards cards cost merchants more in fees, does Citi reduce merchant fees on our purchases with that card once we reach the threshold and they're not giving us the cash back any longer that year? - cstrohm | Date: 10/7/2012 5:55:50 PM | Number: 306057

No such luck for the merchants. The rewards part of the card is part of the contract between your Citi Dividend Platinum card and you. It has no bearing at all on what Citibank charges the merchant per transaction.
