Important News Regarding The Citi® Home Rebate® Platinum Select MasterCard®

Citi® Credit Cards
Citi® Credit Cards
If you're looking for a 0% balance transfer credit card, and you don't want to pay a transaction fee for transferring credit card balances, then the good news is that there are still plenty available. The bad news, however, is that the Citi® Home Rebate® Platinum Select MasterCard®, while still available, now charges a balance transfer fee for all balance transfers. This news is significant because the Home Rebate card was the last 0% "no fee balance transfer" card that offered an interest-free period of 12 months; currently, the all other cards offering free, 0% balance transfer deals have an interest-free of no more than 6 months.

Now don't get the wrong idea. The Citi Home Rebate card is still an excellent credit product offering great value, and you can apply for this card right now if you want to. You can still transfer a balance at 0% intro APR for 12 months, but you'll be charged a balance transfer transaction fee: 3% of each balance transfer with a minimum fee of $5. This card has been the #1 ranked credit product (based on both applications and approvals) at this website since the fall of last year.

I like the Home Rebate card because it has a very attractive rewards program that helps cardholders pay down their mortgage balance faster and build home equity. The American housing market probably won't improve until late 2009, so, for many, any help with getting ahead can make a real difference.
