Citi Dividend Platinum

First off, if you cant pay off your minimum balance EVERY month, you should NOT be using credit cards. Get yourself a debit card so you don't spend what you don't have.

IF you can and will pay off your minimum balance every month, you should consider putting all your purchases on the Citi Dividend Platinum Card.

I have been doing this for a while now, and get cash back checks regularly. Here are two of them at ~$75 each. Note they are only 2 months apart!

The Citi Dividend Platinum card gives you the following:

  • 5% cash back on Groceries, Gasoline, and Drug store purchases.
  • 1% cash back on all other purchases

The cash back adds up real quickly, $1.50 on a $30 gas fill up, $5 on a $100 grocery store visit, $1 on a $20 prescription. The maximum you can earn in 1 calendar year is $300 per card. If you are single, you probably are not going to hit this mark. If you are married, you can have your spouse sign up for their own card (use the link below for each one), then swap to the second one once you have the $300 from the first, and get another $300.

Click here to get the card

(Click the checkbox and click next to update the progress checklist)
I have either signed up for the card using the link above or already own the card.
