So I was trying to find info on the SCRA and how different credit card companies apply and stumbled across this article Military CC Perks on ABC News. It says that several companies waive fees which I was aware of, but it says citi also gives military members a 0% APR. Anyone know if this is true I almost never carry a balance over on my cards between months but it would be pretty awesome to have a card with 0% interest.

I just tried Citi. No luck. Did not have any debt with them prior to entering service. Had NO cards prior to enterign service, but Chase refunded my annual fees on 3 cards, and dropped int rate to 4%. Still waiting on Amex to verify my service. I'm active Army and currently deployed.

Citi does not waive the AF for Citi Prestige or Citi A/Advantage Executive or Citi Chairman, etc. There's a thread of someone crying because he applied for a $450 card, got 100,000 bonus miles plus $200 credit and demanded Citi waive his $450 fee because he's deployed.
