I go there daily so yes 2/26. Can't tell what happens after since it hasn't posted yet.

What do purchases at Simon Malls come up as on your statement? Want to finish up MSR on a Citi AA Biz (has been all organic spend for about a month now), and I have at least 3 malls within driving distance.

I have had miserable experiences with my Citi AA Exec card. Each time I tried to use it at SM it was declined for any VGC purchase. I then had to go and call in to get it unblocked which they did without issue, but I was not able to use it again since SM has a 24 hour block on any card that has been declined.

At first, I thought that it was due to the amount that I was charging, but I kept reducing that number until I realized that it wasn't the amount. I tried proactively calling into Citi and letting them know that I was about to purchase some GCs from SM and they said I was good and the purchase was still declined

I finally gave up. I think that Citi just has some sort of hard on against SM (at least with my card). Bummer. (and yet, no issues at OM buying VGCs )

So your DP was premature? SM online and in person appears to be dead for transactions on and after 2/26

Will Simon Mall purchases work for the new Marriott Bonvoy spending bonuses? Any DPs?

Have you seen a DP regarding an in-mall purchase post 2/26 coding as 1x or is this just an assumption based on online DPs? I may go test it out tomorrow since I have a SM about 45 mins away, but if there's any hard evidence of it coding the same way I'll save myself the trip.

I guess it's a case of Citi being Citi, but I've read they could care less how much you spend online, but as poster below states, in person purchases often get declined.
