Citi® Double Cash Card – 18 month BT offer
In a Nutshell:
One of the best cash rewards card on the market. Earn leading cash back rates on all purchases (1% at time of purchase, 1% when you pay your bill). Plus 0% Intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for your first 18 months.
14.24% - 24.24%* (Variable)
1% cash back on all purchases plus another 1% cash back as you pay for those purchases, whether you pay in full or over time
Citi’s new cash back card has quickly become our editor’s choice in the category. As opposed to many other cards offering high cash back rewards, the Citi® Double Cash Card (a LendingTree advertiser) makes things simple. You get 1% on all purchases, without any caps or category restrictions. Then, when you pay off the charge associated with a purchase, you get a second 1% back. Combine it and you can double the 1% cash back on all purchases you repay, which is the highest unrestricted cash rewards rate offered by any card we’ve reviewed that doesn’t charge an annual fee.
The card also offers attractive intro APR incentives: 0% on balance transfers for the first 18 months. That’s a pretty substantial 0% intro term, and one of the highest among cards we’ve reviewed offering substantial cash back rewards.
Cash rewards are redeemed in increments of $25, and can be accessed via check, statement credit or gift card. Just make sure to use your card at least once per year in order to maintain your points, even if it’s just a small purchase.
