Intro APR period on Purchases and Balance Transfers
If you're looking to make the high-interest balance you're carrying more manageable, the Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever is one of the best balance transfer options to consider. It offers cardholders one of the longest introductory interest-free periods on the market and comes with a $0 annual fee, no late fees and no penalty APR. That alleviates some of the high costs that can add up with an outstanding credit card balance.
The Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever does come with some downsides. If you move a balance onto the card, you’ll pay a fee of $5 or 5% of the total amount transferred (whichever is greater), so that is a cost to consider. The Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever also doesn't come with rewards. But if you're revolving a relatively low balance, and interest charges continue to grow, this card might help you tackle your debt.
