Own a Citi Credit Card


Most people would agree that when it comes to credit cards, Citi has to be on the top of their most wanted list.  If they had to choose one credit card to own most, I have found, would say they want a Citi credit card.

Now is a good time to apply for a Citi credit card! Go to https://tinyurl.com/citi-penny and apply for a credit card with Citi Philippines. People with successful applications will immediately receive an e-gift of P5,000 to be used at Uniqlo or no annual fees plus 10% interest back (for successful Simplicity+ Card referrals).

Citi is one of the most highly respected financial institutions in the world and as such they have the most stringent screening process when accepting applications. After all, they want to make sure that their members actually have the capacity to pay.
