Re: Which Citi card do you think is best?

Simplicity is the best card for BT or just extended 0% promos.

The TY preferred is the best card if your are basing it upon the standard offers. NPSL, and better rewards.

However if you are including all ongoing promos, then the thank you would be the best, since its the only card that has a 5X unlimited gas, groceries and drug stores offer.
JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

Not sure.  The branch promos I know about are for the TY card (5x) and Premier (30K rather than 25K sign up) but that was a few weeks ago.

 

The TY and TY Pref are about to get some 2x categories (dining and entertainment I think).

TY has my vote 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

How long is the offer good for, enharu? Is there a cap one the bonus cash back? If there is a cap that is low, the difference will be rather minimal ...

Unlimited cash back (or rather TY points!) for 12 months.   For heavy users, the difference is considerable, some people are getting a few thousand dollars per month for example.

That sounds awesome actually. Even better than when the Cash+ was still offering 5% on bill pay and airfare
