Re: What's the best citi card?

I have 4 Citi cards, and I use all of them lol.

 

Citi Dividend World Elite Mastercard

Citi Forward

Citi Hilton Reserve Visa Signature

Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature

 

I am finding myself using the Hilton Reserve the most lately though.

 

I will say that Citi has been MUCH better to me than Discover.

Re: What's the best citi card?

I have the Citi Prestige card. I don't think you can apply for directly anymore.  It has a $500 annual fee but for me its worth it since I get a free international ticket each year (minus taxes and fees still save around 1K).

[ Edited ]

I just got the citi TY Preferred. Pretty basic card, and standard intro offers.

 

I got declined with a 733 FICO, but was approved on recon with significant effort on my end.

 

Just got a basic Visa Platinum, but I called and they said it has concierge and NPSL.

 

I would say it is a good card just to get your foot in the door with them.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Re: What's the best citi card?

I stay at Hilton almost 10 times per year so the HHonors Reserve was a highly desired card for me. The bonuses are awesome and I can stay at my favorite hotel at any time simply for the signup bonus.

My blunt, honest opinion?  None.  It's a great card and you don't have to deal with Citi.  :smileylol:
