Citi BT offer typo?

I just received a BT offer from Citi, 0% until Jan 2012!  Of course there is the 3% BT fee, but even a few years ago when things were good with BT offers I was only seeing 12-18 month offers.  Anyone else get this offer?

Counting this month that is only 14 months. Unless you meant a longer time than1/2012?

Re: Citi BT offer typo?

My offers have been for 12 months or less. 14 months is pretty darn good, tho.

Credit Profile -

All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!

I agree but I've seen posts mentioning a 21 month BT offer from Citi so that's why I was wondering if the 1/2012 expiration was correct.

As fused said though 14 months is still a pretty good offer. It's something to think about.

When I opened my Citi Plat. Select MC a few months ago the offer was 15 months 0% balance transfer and purchases. I have no use for balance transfers but I did take advantage of 0% purchase offer.

 

Citi is really encouraging me to use the balance transfer with emails, snail mail and now they are sending me checks.

 

Does a creditor not know by my credit reports that I don't carry balances?

Mine- Amex BCE $11.1 / Citi Diamond Preferred WMC $12K / Citi Double Cash WMC $3.8K / Comenity Total Rewards Visa $2.5K / Citi Home Depot $5K / DW's- I'm AU on most- Amex BCP $12K / Chase Freedom Visa $11014.00 / PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa Signature $6K / Citi Simplicity MC $4.4K / GE Lowes $10K / GE CareCredit $5K

Of course they do but that won't stop them from encouraging you to hopefully carry balances from month to month at some point in the future.  :smileyhappy:
