Use it every day. Pay off every month.
Gringochuck Cardholder

The rewards on this card are excellent. I've earned over $3,000 within the last three years. They're quick to payout too. My credit limit is $30,000; I started at $9,000.

Easy application, great starting limit!
victoradewunmi Cardholder

Today I applied to the Citi Double CB card after having very good approval odds accoring to Credit Karma. TU - 708 and Equifax - 775. March 14th of this year my score was a 601! After focused effort on my credit and two new Capital One cards, I can finally say I am taking my credit in the right direction. Capital One started me on the QS 1 with a 1500 limit and after 5 months increased it by 3000 to 4500. Still focused on buidling my credit activity, in October I applied to Capital One's Journey Student rewards card (even though I am years removed from being a student) and was approved for a 3000 limit. So far things are going well. I called Capital One to see if I qualified for an upgrade. I have a goal of minimizing my annual fees. The QS1 had a $39 annual fee which requires me to spend on it just to break even! Good news, they upgraded me to the Venture One card and let me transfer my total cash back rewards to the Journey card so that I would not lose my $113+ in cash. Now I have a new every day spend card in Citi! I would caution though that you apply to the Citi card on their actual website because the CK app timed out and I didn't get to create user ID or get my card number info. Overall I am looking forward to this card and I will provide any updates as I continue to use it. Oh and I searched online for typical starting limits for Citi Double Cash cards, I wasn't looking forward to alot but they surprisingly approved me for a limit of 6900!

Super simple super easy cashback card.
Theateteus Cardholder

It's no frills and doesn't have the best cashback in any one category but it's a staple card for when you don't have a card at hand with a better return.

Excellent card, I don't know why some are fussing.  You buy something (1% cash back) then in the next day or so, log on and pay that item off (1% cash back for paying it off) and there's your 2%.  I will not use this card travelliing internationally as there is a 3% foreign transaction fee, however there are other options for that.   If you can pay your balances in full and know how to manage your finances, then this card is well worth it.

Instant Approval

I was approved for this card with TU and EQ both 746. FICO 707. Starting CL $6,600. I have good credit, on time payments, around 10% util, but low average account ages. Discover denied me another card for the low account ages, so I went to CITI and got approved instantly.

MedinaRut Cardholder

Instantly approved for 1,500 with 0% APR for 12 months.
I mainly needed to transfer a balance and to my suprise i was approved for a 0% APR on balance transfers plus NO TRANSFER FEE!!!
Yes! That was just what i was looking for. Days letter i got another offer thru mail. Applied and I got Approved for a better promotion 0% APR for 18 Months!!!!
Again i needed it for a balance tranfers and eventhou this time it came with a 3% charge fee for transfers i was okay with it since they aready have given me great promotions!
Capital one gave me a 6 month 0% APR when i first got their card and nothing compares to whatt CITI has done for me !!!
By far the BEST Credut Card to apply for!!!

For people who are new to all of this some abbreviations are not understood. For a review to be helpful you have to understand it.

What is your yearly income when receiving a CL of $1,500?

Great all around card!
TexMex9000 Cardholder

I was on the fence about this card because of the bad reviews on the customer service end but decided to grab it anyways. When I first got it they gave me something low. I believe a 5k line. I applied for higher limit through their customer service the following week and got approved for an extra 10k on the spot. I've had no issues with customer service or the card itself. Great all around card!

I love this card
KANNAN1017 Cardholder

I love this card. I got it like 3 years back and only using this card for any transaction. Getting 2% cashback. I got the credit limit increased without Credit pull couple of times (because I have good credit score and dont miss any payments). I love citi bank on the security. They blocked one of Frauderant transaction on my card. I got call from citi immediately and they sent me new card.
