    Just curious what your guys are getting?

    mines showing prime plus 7.99% (16.49) now. Wondering if i should haggle for lower?

    Anyone else get the citi cards in the last year and get something better?

    RE: Is everyone elses citibank

    citibank uses risk based pricing on many of its cards. the APR is determined by credit score but after that, account history with them should be a more significant factor. The rates range for the low 20s to about 11 and they will haggle.

    All of our rates should go down 1 point very soon since the fed. cut rates.

    if your account is new sam, maybe you should wait a while before haggling, then you'll have good payment history to point to when you ask for a reduction.

    my account is 6 months old. it is still on a 2.9 intro. rate for balance transfers. once i pay off my 5K balance transfer which should happen before the intro. period ends and the balance is -0-, i'll ask for the reduction. i think this puts me in the strongest bargaining position. right now the card is at 15.4 (talking plat. select here). for the time being, i consider myself a freshman card holder who doesn't need to make waves. i'm still experiencing the euphoria of escaping the clutches of capital one.
