You'll never get a decent interest rate with this's all about the money for them.  They could care less about how long you've been a customer in good standing.   My interest rate is rediculious!!

My Fico score was 610 and I was approved for $200 credit limit. I normally get gas at shell station so decided to give this card a try to add to the savings on gas ( 5 cent on fillups). I have a long commute and fill up twice a week - whew!!  Interest rate is high 24%. Got it in hopes of helping to rebuild credit. I will pay this off every month to avoid those high rates.

Approved - With Low FICO Score of 630ish
21incalifornia Cardholder

I applied for this card and was not approved instantly. The website asked that I call the 800 number to confirm some information or do an instant chat session with a Citi Customer Service Rep.  I did the instant chat session. I confirmed my name and phone number, and was then approved for a $300 credit limit. This card is backed by Citibank.  Citi is not an easy bank to obtain credit from, so i was really surprised that I was approved with a lower credit score.  Just glad that im able to establish and start building my credit/name with a good bank like Citi.

Terrible ever since Texaco became Shell
Anonymous Cardholder

We had been long time Shell card holders (23 years) and this summer without us asking for it they decided to transfer our account to a "Drive for 5" account. Due to a death in the family about a month before they did this I overlooked paying my bill and it went 30 days late. Distractions in life happen, but when Shell made this change they did report it to the credit reporting agencies properly as a transfer. They listed it as closing one account and opening a new account. My credit score dropped almost 80 points because now they are reporting both of the account numbers as 30 days late. 

Between my wife and I, we have about 10 hours on the phone with Chase who manage the card for Shell. They keep saying they are reporting it right and Experian says they are reporting it right yet I still see two accounts and two 30 day late charges. If we ever get our score recovered so we can get into a new house (been waiting over 60 days to get this cleaned up) we'll close this card and never, ever do business with this bunch again.
