Full Review:
5 2014-06-23 11:50:22 Citi Simplicity® Card is one of our favorite credit cards. Its unique combination of an 18 month 0% introductory APR and no late fees or annual fee make it a compelling value. Unlike other credit cards, Citi Simplicity® Card does not charge late fees, a nice feature for those that sometimes forget to pay on time. Citi Simplicity® Card also features a lengthy 18 month 0% introductory purchase and balance transfer APR, the longest 0% intro APR period of any card we've found. This feature makes it ideal for those who want to use the card for a big purchase or to transfer balances from other high interest rate credit cards. If you're looking for the longest possible 0% intro APR, reasonable ongoing APRs and a great added benefit like no late fees, Citi Simplicity® Card is the way to go.
