Citi suspends USA Prestige card applications August 2018

[NOTE - This post is edited to reflect the confirmation of the news.]

Declaimer - this has been now confirmed.

I was told by a Citibank banker that Citi will stop accepting Citi Prestige Application as of 8/18. The banker did not discussed anything further regarding this nor sharing any written materials regarding this as well.

When I was skeptical about this news (in fact I was skeptical about the banker as well), AFAICT, Citi has a tendency to do something like this, which makes this news plausible (and now confirmed).

It can mean many things if this turns out to be true. However, the worst case scenario could mean this card would be discontinued very soon.

I would suggest that those of you who have this card plan ahead (but don't act yet). Also - can someone verify this news as well?

For those of you who want the card, it is now or never.
