All payments coding as online are hit and miss. Sometimes it codes as online, sometimes it doesn't. YMMV.

It doesn't show me on the citi website what each online purchase codes as. i've been on chat for an hour and they don't know. I just see a summary on each statement.
Is any retail online website supposed to code as 3x and in practice what codes at 3x? I hadn't been looking and just kept using the card for all regular online purchases.

Does Paypal when checking out using Paypal on a website still code as 3x?

I've been following the thread for years now. I'm just wondering if there are any new DPs. Apparently, basically nothing codes as 3x with online purchases and we have to chat in every time to have it fixed? PayPal seems to be dead, but not all DPs say that. One guy above said he got 3x on all purchases. DPs are all over the place. The problem I have is I can't see what is coding as 3x and what isn't because it isn't itemized on thankyou.com, citi.com or my statement.

Although the card has mostly behaved ok for me, I have kind of given up on ATTA, and called in today to close / see if there were any offers, especially that +2 TYP up to 35k that I've gotten twice before.

Nothing was available, so I converted it to a Double Cash which is actually useful for me, since I won't need to keep using my wife's.

Happy to report a successful redemption of the $650 credit from card opening in July 2016. After a month or so of no credit since faxing/mailing the documents, finally gave in and called. It took heavy explaining of the terms to a supervisor but she finally understood it and had to put in a request to another team to obtain statements that far back (to check the $2,000 spend was met). A few days later the credit appeared.

It still counts 3x for MPX purchases, seeing them as travel, so I would assume so. It was never my go-to for airline purchases though so I can't say for sure.

Real shot in the dark here... I'm getting Tesla Solar panels in a couple weeks, and just found out that you can call into the billing department to pay via CC without any surcharge. I don't suppose anybody has a DP as to whether that counts as an online transaction (would still be "card not present" but not sure that's enough)? The ATTAM would be my best option if so, but I'm not sure I'm willing to gamble on such a large charge.

For a minute there, I thought I would be able to use that app and buy UA airfare to earn extra points.

I would lean towards no. In most ambiguous cases like that, Citi is happy to give you 1x.

Some observations based on poring over my recent statements and trying to figure out what does and does not get coded:

Best Buy
This was noted upthread, but it seems consistent that if the charge shows up as RICHFIELD MN, it codes as 1x. If it just shows up as BEST BUY MN, it codes as 3x. No idea what the distinction is, all are online orders and all show BESTBUYCOM as the merchant.

Target
Gifts cards purchased at Target do not code as 3x, everything else does. Merchant details are exactly the same, but all of my gift card purchases are coding as 1x. Oddly enough, when there have been promos that split up the gift card charge, the smaller amount DOES code as 3x. Example, recent promos with buying an Apple gift card for $100 with $20 Target GC bonus. These process as two separate charges, $80/$20. $80 gets 1x, $20 gets 3x.

Apple
App Store stopped working last year, but purchases from the Apple Store seem to be coding normally as 3x. Haven't tried buying App Store gift cards through the Apple Store, but you can also just buy these at MPX.

Counted as 3x fall last year. They even let you split many multiple CC's. I honestly didn't expect it to, but had the 2x retention offer going at the time so didn't hurt to try (got 5x total).
