Bottom Line:
21-month 0% intro APR on both purchases and balance transfers, no late fees

Full Review:
The Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever (a NextAdvisor advertiser) is one of our top-rated cards for good reason, as its unique combination of a 21-month 0% intro APR and no late fees or annual fee make it a compelling card.

To start, the Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever features an incredibly lengthy 21-month 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers — the longest 0% intro APR period we've seen! This makes it ideal for those who want to use the card for a big purchase or to transfer balances from another card(s) with high interest rates. The 21-month 0% APR period can help you pay down your balance over time without worrying about accruing interest fees. While the card has a balance transfer fee of 3% of each balance transfer; $5 minimum., this fee is likely much lower than the interest you're paying on your current credit card, making a balance transfer to the Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever worthwhile.

Unlike other credit cards, the Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever does not charge late fees, which is ideal if you're someone who sometimes forget to pay on time. On top of that, the card has automatic email and text alerts for when payments are due or if you exceed your credit limit, so you can stay in the know with your account. It also will monitor your balance levels and send you a notification when it hits certain thresholds.

Another card perk includes the Citi Price Rewind service, which will look for a lower price on something you bought with your Citi card at retailer sites for up to 60 days after the purchase date. If a lower price is found, you can be refunded the difference between what you paid and the lower price — up to $300 (max. $1,200 annually). This service is particularly helpful for big-ticket items, giving you peace of mind that you got the best price. Additional card extras include free monthly Equifax FICO Scores, car rental insurance and travel assistance.

If you're looking for the longest possible 0% intro APR period (21 months!), reasonable ongoing APRs and great added benefits like no late fees and no annual fee, the Citi Simplicity® Card - No Late Fees Ever is the way to go. We highly recommend it, particularly for consolidating balances from other high-interest cards or if you want to pay no interest for over 1.5 years on new purchases.
