Citi® Double Cash Card review

Citi® Double Cash Card

3.8 rating

If you regularly pay off your card in full each month, it’s hard to beat the cash back rewards on the Citi Double Cash card: It offers 2 percent cash back (1 percent when you buy and an additional 1 percent as you make payments for those purchases), making it an ideal card for purchases that don’t qualify for larger bonuses.
