Citi Simplicity® Card – No Late Fees Ever

For People with
Good Credit

Learn how to apply for this card.



The Citi Simplicity Card offers a long 0%* 21 months on Balance Transfers* introductory balance transfer APR for 21 months, which few other credit cards can match, and some general shopping and travel benefits.

Purchases will get a shorter term, of 12 months at 0%* 12 months on Purchases* APR. After the intro periods are over, a regular rate of 16.24% - 26.24%* Variable will apply for both purchases and balance transfers.

This makes the Simplicity one of the best cards for paying off balances, although it’s not quite as good for new purchases.

There’s no annual fee, no late fees, and no penalty APR.

Say No to Citi Duplicity

There are plenty of invisible strings attached to the "Simplicity" card. You won't be charged a late fee for not paying by your due date, but Citi will freeze your credit and call to hound you until you pay double your monthly minimum payment. Your online account will read "in collection" and any phone calls to Citi will be met with chastisement and pressure to pay (even if you have already paid and are waiting for payment to post). When I sent a check to pay off my entire account balance, I had to call 13 times, go through the two-step verification process prior to speaking to someone, hear the lecture about a payment three days past due, and explain everything each and every time. I ended up speaking to more than 21 people, including 3 supervisors. The representatives gave me contradictory answers, rushed my call, and tried to brush me off or pass me on as soon as possible. I was given misinformation and false assurances. In contrast, I sent a check to pay off my Chase credit card at the same time and it took two phone calls and a total of two people to handle everything. I won't use my card again and strongly advise going with another company. There are many good cards out there; don't let the name "Simplicity" fool you. There's nothing simple about dealing with Citi.
