Pros and cons

Pros
  • No annual fee

  • Intro APR period on Purchases and Balance Transfers

Cons
  • No rewards

The Citi® Diamond Preferred® Card has a long 0% intro APR period that can give you back time and savings to pay down debt. It also offers the flexibility to choose a payment due date that works around your payday schedule, making it easier to pay off debt at your own pace.

While it makes the cut as a candidate for a balance transfer, there are some potential drawbacks to consider. It has a $5 or 5% balance transfer fee (whichever is greater) which may be a deal-breaker. And, it doesn’t offer rewards or other valuable incentives to keep you using the card after you finish paying off your balance. Other credit cards can offer more value and lower fees.
