ABSTRACT
Advises that Citibank is stopping its `CitiDollars' program, which offers discounts toward items from special catalogs. Cardholders have until August 31, 1994 to redeem their CitiDollars or earmark them for any of 16 charities. Other credit card incentive programs are just as vulnerable--the rules can change anytime.
