I see on the website that it says none, but i want to make sure there is no fine print.  


Their site is the source to refer to.  If the site says there is none then there is none.

I was surprised at this, but seems to be true!  The terms and conditions state that this is a NPSL card which I thought (in the MC/V space) meant Sig or World.   Looking more, it looks like the old plain TY Card has gone (there is still one for biz) so they have consolidated...

Well ultimately I pick my cards based on how they look X'S and rewards. At this point I wouldn't mind if it had rewards or not I have thought about the simplicity but I wouldn't mind points on dining either. Again though just need a new visa. I have mainly MC will probably go for discover in 2015

Well, I can't address the look  (or the wisdom of having that as a selection criterion!), but the rewards are nothing special on this card, unless the entertainment category is particularly valuable to you, and you don't have a card that does better.  2x TYP isn't all that valuable as the rewards are hard to redeem for cash.

Practicality, service/acceptance and rewards structures are more of the appeal for me IME.  Realizing everyone has different reasons, you'd hate to select a product based on looks if it offers nothing substantial in return other than just a payment form (and maybe that's ok for some folks).  In the general sense, as longtimelurker pointed out, the TYP is an 'ok' card.

Imagine my shock as well since when I applied in July I didn't really think it was offered as a Signature version, being that they had just switched it from being dual (V & MC), and the TY Premier had gone into seclusion.  Almost like the standard Citi Forward, you don't see many of those in Signature versions.

Re: Citi Bank

What is your reasoning for wanting a Citi card? I have the Dividend, and I'm happy with it. I'll definitely keep the card for the long term. Are you looking for rewards, purchase protections, customer service, or something else?
