Offer was as follows

- After 21 months of 0% interest rate it goes to 11.99%

I took the deal and went online filled out information and got approved for $9000

Re: Citi Simplicity - Invitation

The only reason I app this card was that it had a low Apr 11.99% after 21 months. It offers nothing else no cash back no mileage nothing which is fine as my Discover and Amex I use for cash back and points.

The mistake I see a lot of ppl here make is not having the right mix of cards. Meaning if you have say 4-5 cards all cash back or points its a little more difficult to get the benefit from these cards because you spending your purchase across too many cards.

The right mix for me is 2 cards Amex and discover to get cash back and points so I can optimize on the benefits and the other cards for low or 0% interest rate
