Citi Simplicity is part of the Citibank group’s credit cards. Citibank is the Citigroup’s consumer division. Citibank, or City Bank of New York and later First National City Bank of New York, was founded in 1812. The bank does standard banking operations and markets credit cards, insurance and investment products. It started the credit card business in 1960. Its very first credit card was “The Everything Card” which was created in 1968. The online services division claims the most successful field, which accounts to about 15 million customers. Today, it now offers numerous credit card products to suit every customer’s needs, and one of them is the Citi Simplicity credit card, the only card that offers no late charges, no annual fee and no penalty rate.
Citi Simplicity is called such because it features a simple proposition, which is a very long 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers for 21 months. It boasts no late payment charges and no annual fee. Users can enjoy 13.24% to 23.24% APR variable after 21 months. This gives you time to pay existing debt or a recent purchase. Since there is no late payment charge and penalty increase of APR, it won’t hurt to miss payments.
