The 21 months 0% APR is what sold me on this card and after a 3 minute application process was approved with a 5.5k credit limit with a average credit score. I will be using that 0% APR to pay off other high APR credit cards.

With low interest rates and attractive perks, the Citi® Diamond Preferred® Card is a good all-around choice for consumers with good to excellent credit.
What to Like
The Citi® Diamond Preferred® Card offers a 0% intro APR on both purchases and balance transfers for 21 months, and resets to an interest rate as low as 12.49% afterward. The card also offers 24/7 access to concierge services, which is a pretty nice perk.
Look Out For
There are a lot of perks attached to this card, but a rewards or cash back program isn’t one of them. Keep in mind, too, though that this card has a high penalty APR, meaning one late payment could result in higher interest rates indefinitely.

This was my go to card first five years. $25,000 credit limit, so I made a big purchase for $23,000 and paid it off by the next billing cycle. Citi sent me a notification saying they didn't like the way I was using my card, dropped my limit to $2,500 and sent me a Thankyou PREFERRED card. Now some years later still have same card, that I don't care for and no credit increase. Called costumer service and ask why haven't I gotten an increase and was told I wasn't using my card enough for an increase. Then they hit me with a hard inquiry and increase refusal. TU 795 Equifax 802. Capital One $13,000 limit, AMEX $25,000 Discover $19,000. Never asked for increase on these cards. Just seemed to give them automatically. What happened to Citi cards?
