Why You Should Consider Opening a City Bank Credit Card

Dec 19, 2018


Do you have a credit card in your wallet that has become your default tried and true solution when it's time to charge a purchase? There's nothing wrong with loyalty, but it might be time to make a change if you can get some perks in return.

One recent study found that about 49 million Americans have never switched their main credit card and nearly 20 million have held onto the same card for a decade. Premium credit cards are now more popular than ever, and City Bank offers a range of three personal credit cards to meet your needs.

Feature-Packed Low-APR Credit Cards

City Bank offers consumers a choice of three credit cards, all with a low APR. Our Mastercard┬« Platinum card comes with a 0.00% introductory APR for six months (including balance transfers). After that, your APR will vary depending on your creditworthiness, with a rate between 10.99% to 18.99%. Terms and Conditions

Both the Mastercard Platinum Rewards card and the Mastercard World card offer a 14.99% to 20.99% APR, based on creditworthiness.  These rates are also available for balance transfers.

1Upon approval, a letter will be mailed acknowledging your new account. The Rewards Bonus period begins on the date of the new account letter and ends 90 days later. For details on the Rewards Program, please visit and select Rewards Terms and Conditions. Reward options are subject to change without notice. 2We group similar merchant category codes into Purchase Categories that are used to calculate the stated reward points. We make every effort to include all relevant merchant category codes in the listed Purchase Categories. However, even though a merchant or the items that it sells may appear to fit within a Purchase Category, the merchant may not provide us with the merchant code that will fall within that Purchase Category. Because of this, we cannot guarantee that a purchase will qualify for more than the standard 1 (one) rewards points as any purchase where a merchant uses a category code outside of the eligible Purchase Category does not qualify for additional rewards points.  3Certain terms, conditions, and exclusions apply. Please consult your Guide to Benefits for specific benefit configuration.
