Free $10 Walmart eGift Card with $100 Purchases at using Citi credit cards

There have been many promotional offers received.  One of them is from Citi Bank.  Two interesting offers are noticed:

1. Free $10 Walmart eGift card due to Citi Tuesday at - 11/5/2013 - 12/17/2013

You can also earn an easy and free $10 Walmart/Macys gift card after making $25 purchases via cash-back portal as a new customer (new email address and shipping address).  A pop-up window with display of several gift cards would be presented to you in the browser for you to opt-in.  Ebates will mail the gift card to your account address.

2. Citi Price Rewind - using Citi card for purchases with low price guarantee for 30 days, only if at least $25 difference.

I have not tried it myself, because I use Chase and AMEX credit cards for purchases most of the time.  Check out "What is not Covered?"  The exceptions are quite long.  I highlighted the important ones in red, that would apply to my shopping habit.
The Citi Price Rewind Program does not apply to:
  • Boats;
