Citi has an awesome price match program called the Citi Price Rewind that allows not only its users to get up to $500 per refund but also with an annual limit of $2500. However, starting July 29th, 2018 Citi has decided to reduce the benefit amounts to $200 per refund with an annual limit of $1000 even though the FAQ page on the Citi Price Rewind website doesn't say so.

We are not surprised at Citi's actions given what Chase has done with its Price Protection program recently. While the Citi's program is very comprehensive and free of any price adjustment myths that we debunked earlier, it shows the ongoing trend where the price match periods are shrinking and it no longer adds any value to a user's daily life.
