CREDIT CARD - 1/24/2016

I recently opened a 2% cash back credit card with CITI. I put my Comcast, electric bill, heating bill, and car, house, personal liability and other insurance on this card along with any other things that have a 1% cash back on my other credit cards.  They, as others do, will mail me my statement and debit the full amount each month from my checking account. So far, as with my other cards it has worked without a hitch. It was easy to open and everything ran smoothly. The card came within a few days.  This is just a way to double the amount I would have received on some of the things  on other cards out there. I still get the 5% off my gasoline with Pen Fed.  I also like that so far the cash back on credit cards is not taxable and or the amounts are not added into the MAGI.

Review Of Banking With Citi By A Happy Customer

Posted by: LizLasko | Apr 13, 2016

I would say I have had a wonderful experience using CITI Bank. I especially enjoy the mobile app I have downloaded on my Android device. I can access up to seven years of statements and this was helpful when i was purchasing a home because the mortgage company requested several years of banking history. Also another big thing I've seen many banks offering is the mobile check deposit. I have sued this feature and I found that the app works great but I had issues while taking pictures of the front and back of my check. I kept getting errors and had to take many pictures before they were accepted by the app. I know on the commercials it looks so easy, and it should be easy, the app is set up quite easy, I feel this was just my camera and having bad lighting. The mobile check deposit didn't work or go as smoothly and quickly as I though it would. I do love their website as well as the mobile app as I feels it's user friendly and easy to maneuver and find anything i'm looking for on their website. I am lucky enough to have a credit card with them as well, so what's great about that is when i'm on my app I can click a button that says pay my credit card and it allows me to make my payment, without having to leave the screen or go to a new app or website. I have also set up notification one time when I paid my plumber a check I set up a notification for when he cashed it. I also set up a notification when my income tax was getting deposited. It's nice to be able to set up these updates especially when waiting for a check to clear. I have set up direct deposit and a auto pay to avoid the $12 monthly service fee. I do think the fee is higher than most banks but it's nice that I had the option to set up direct deposit and auto pay to avoid the fee. Another nice service they offer for customer like me with credit cards is I can ask them to reissue a credit card, or even activate a new credit card right through the mobile app on my phone. I love that they offer so many great things I can do with my phone. I feel this is the way of the future technology is everything, and Citi is definitely keeping up with the future of technology and all that they offer. I have recommended them to my friends and family more than once because I just love all the features I get right on my phone. I also like I was able to go paperless with my monthly statement so i don't have to worry if it got lost in the mail. Now I get an email every month, and there is a link in the email I click on that takes me right to my statement. I have email on my phone, so I did have to download an adobe reader app to my phone I found this out the hard way as the first time i tried to do it I couldn't get the statement to open. I love that I can access all this information right from my phone, and that I am helping save the environment because they're not cutting down trees to send me a monthly statement. They do offer many different types of checking accounts I just have the most basics but there are so many options especially if you're someone that keeps a higher balance, unfortunately I am not. The interest rate is pretty low only 0.01% so I'm not making much in interest but again I keep a pretty low balance, and they do have options for people that keep higher balances. All and all I would say my experience with their banking and their credit cards have been quite nice.

A solid bank with plenty branch locations in NYC

Posted by: jy10003 | Jun 29, 2016

I have been a customer with Citibank since I was old enough to have a bank account. They offered a great starter account that was joint savings and checking several years ago. I haven't wanted to change since and even had my husband join in the account. Unfortunately, interest rates overall (not specific to Citibank but general to almost all reputable banks currently) are so low, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to shift money into one of their other products such as a CD. However, my husband and I did look into this at one point and we had a live human being help us right away and lay out the terms and rates and answer all our questions very clearly. They have a lot of good literature and well-designed informational pamphlets in their branches. I recommend going into your local branch and checking them out and you can get a sense for yourself whether this is the right bank for you.

Citibank Is Only Ok For Credit Cards

Citibank accounts are just not that great. They have lots of fees; they require large balances such as 1500 or 6000 or 10000 or 100000 to avoid ridiculous monthly service fees. Plus, they still charge you for wires, official bank checks, and to use a non-Citibank ATM without any reimbursements of non-Citi ATM fees. Plus, I find that everytime I call customer service reps, even for more banking questions and issues, are outsourced to India. They do not help. I had to go to my branch bank and have them go through some internal callings to follow up on banking issues.

Their credit cards are ok. The thankyou network is ok. Sometimes the thankyou points to gift card conversions is not 1-1, more like 0.833:1


Just spent 1h on the phone with EVERYTHING but useful. One of the reps didn't even know what a Citi Prestige Credit Card was. Nearly impossible to get someone on the phone if you don't have a Citibank account, also, which is kinda funny I guess they don't want new customers. I was to go with the Citi Prestige CC, but I might stay with my good Amex Experience and apply to their Platinum Card instead then....
