Pros and cons

Pros
  • No annual fee

  • Intro APR period on Purchases and Balance Transfers

Cons
  • Needs excellent credit

The Citi ThankYou® Preferred Card is designed to appeal to daters, diners and folks looking for thrills out on the town.

It earns double rewards on restaurants and entertainment, and its definition of entertainment is broad. With an annual fee of $0, the card can be a decent choice for social butterflies.

But dining and entertainment have become super-competitive categories in recent years, so even if those are your biggest spending areas, you can find many cards that offer higher rewards rates in those categories.

Plus, if you’re looking for the perks of a sign-up bonus or cash back, you’ll want to research other options
