Citibank Credit Cards Recommender




Hey everyone! Have you signed up for your Citibank credit card yet? Just in case you are still confused as to which card to get, there is a 'card recommender' on their site to guide you along. I've just tried it myself and it's so easy!! Here's how you do it:


Step 1:

Log on to the Citibank 'card recommender' site HERE


Step 2:

Select the cards that you are interested in for comparing (compare up to 6 cards). Click 'compare now' and voila! the features of the cards such as rewards, privileges and perks etc. appear right back at you.

I've chosen to compare the Citi Clear Platinum Card and the Citi Platinum Visa/Mastercard here.

Citibank Clear Platinum Card

bulletAfter dark privileges (eg: 1-for-1 drinks and priority entries) at popular nightspots-Zouk, Timbre, Helipad etc

After which, make your choice of card and APPLY NOW!

If not, you can also decide on which card to apply for by clicking on 'choose the right card for your lifestyle' button at the bottom of the page.


Step 1:


Input your age range. ( I entered 21-35 for myself)

Next, enter if you're 'salaried' or 'self-employed'.

Step 2:

Depending on your needs, decide if you prefer 'cash back up to 5%', 'reward items up to 5x' or 'miles for travel'.

I selected 'cash back up to 5%', and was prompted that I may qualify for 2 cards.

Step 3:

Click 'recommend now' and the cards recommended will appear along with their privileges.

Mine showed the:

Citibank Dividend Card

Citi DIVIDEND Card
bullet14.5% savings at Esso
bullet5% cash back on petrol at any station
bullet2% cash bank on any dining, grocery and pharmaceutical purchases
bullet0.5% cash back on all other retail spend
bulletCiti Rebate: where all card member can earn up to 10% Citi rebate at merchants like Cold Storage/ Guardian/ Coffee Bean (rebate is in addition to their existing rewards)



and the Citi Business Card

Once again, decide on the card your choice and apply HERE

I'm really impressed with Citibank for these tools to help with deciding on which cards. We all know how confusing it can be to decide with so many choices available. This site comes in really handy!


I've been a Citibank Platinum card holder for about 5 years and I'm still loving the privileges, perks, rewards and most importantly, Citibank's customer service! (bad customer service really gripes me!)
