You've decided to apply for a Citi MasterCard, but with so many different cards to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? Here is a brief guide to the different types of MasterCard available from Citibank.
A great MasterCard program is the Citi Platinum Select Card. It offers basic rewards, such as an 0% Annual Percent Rate and no annual fee, for qualified applicants. This MasterCard will also give you peace of mind, when making online purchases, because it offers protection against unauthorised purchases.
If you're looking for a plan with more rewards, then the Citi Premier Pass Card, might be the Citi MasterCard plan that's just right for you. Like the Platinum Select Card, the Pass Card offers an introductory 0% APR and no annual fee, for qualified applicants. It also offers online account management, statements, and billing activity. The Premier Pass Card also offers extensive travel and air miles, so if you're a frequent flier, this card's for you.
Another great MasterCard offer from Citibank is the Citi Diamond Preferred Rewards Card. In addition to the 0% APR for twelve months and the promise of no annual fee, this credit card package will give you reward points for money spent for everyday purchases. For example, for every dollar that you spend on the Citi Diamond card for purchases made at gas stations, drugstores and grocery stores, you will earn five reward points back, to use in their rewards program.
Even if you're a college student, CitiBank has a MasterCard just for you. You have several student cards to choose from, such as the Citi Dividend Platinum Select Card for College Students and the Citi Driver's Edge Card for Students. Both are designed to help you responsibly build your credit history, while offering you basic rewards, such as 0% APR for six months and no yearly fee.
Regardless of your spending habits, there's a Citi MasterCard program to suit your needs.
