New CITI Cash Rewards Credit Card - Awesome Secondary Tactical Addition - 6/16/2021

For those who don't carry a credit card balance and focus purely on rewards, Citi rolled out their new Custom Cash MasterCard. It's a traditional 1% CB card on all purchases (yawn) except that the card earns 5% on the first $500 of MONTHLY spend on the credit card users top eligible spend category. Eligible spend categories are restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, select streaming services, select travel, select transit, home improvement stores, fitness clubs, live entertainment and drugstores. The user does not need to pre-select categories...its calculated automatically each billing period. So by strategically utilizing this card and tactically planning spend, you can maximize purchases each month (up to $500 for $25 in rewards/month) in one of those categories on this card and continue to utilize other, more lucrative cards for your other spending. For reference, most other cash back cards that offer 5% categories tend to cap the rebate at the first $1,500 of quarterly spend.

Citi Offering 0%Apr On Purchases Made Through Next Spring…Impact On Credit? - 6/12/2021

For those credit score “junkies” out there…a targeted offer from Citi for my credit card has a big zero on interest on “balance” payments made each month on those qualified purchases through a set date next year. Seems to me as a straight forward installment type purchase and could be useful rather than paying entire card balance off each month which has been the norm Q…is this good/bad/neutral to one’s credit score(s)? Thanks

Banking with Citi as a student was simple

Posted by: |

I banked with Citibank while I was a foreign student in New York City. I used the account to receive money from my parents who were not in the US. Citibank charged reasonable exchange rate and wire transfer fees. As a student, they allowed me to open a checking/ savings account with no minimum account balance required. They also provided me with free check books that really came in handy. After I graduated, I used Citibank to send money back to my Citibank account based in my home country to pay back a loan. Citibank never revoked my student status so I never felt the pressure to maintain a high account balance. When I did transfer funds internationally, I simply walked into a nearby Citibank branch and was always greeted by friendly bank employees. I have always had a good experience with Citibank.

Caution On Bonus's

Look carefully if you are going after one of their many bonus's After you have satisfied all the requirements, on the $700 bonus, they have up to 90 days to actually credit you with the bonus. I am waiting right now.

What A Mess

Posted by: |

So I applied for and was approved for interest checking and Citi accelerate savings. So I went into my account and found no proof that I would get the 2.36 percent. So I kept digging. Turns out this rate isn't available in NY! I would be getting, evidently, some God awful brick and mortar savings rate of around .13 percent. Thats right. I was approved for a product not available in NY. Not funny. Can't wait to shred the checks and debit cards on the way.
Update- On August 10 i called Citibank and was told my rate would be .04 percent. I closed my accounts.

Insightful banking experience with Citi

Posted by: |

I have been with Citibank for over 7 years now. After graduating from college and thankfully getting employed in the desired industry, occasionally I am obliged to travel with my supervisor overseas to meet with potential partners. I was very fortunate to have opened checking account with Citibank. Citibank is considered to be an international player in banking and have many branches worldwide. Thus, I manage to avoid many foreign transaction fees when using my debit card to purchase or get cash from ATM overseas. It has been very smooth, convenient, comfortable and satisfying to be part of this company. Wherever I go, I feel like there will be service that is managed by Citibank and I will avoid paying any unnecessary and extra fees on my banking transactions. On top of that, Citibank has an excellent customer service. Once, I remember I needed a proof of residence for one my application at different bank. I contacted Citibank and requested the letter from them as I had been with them for long time. In 24 hours, the letter was available online in my account and I was able to download it in PDF format immediately. It was very fast with high quality response to my concern. I hope I will be with them for many years to come
