From the CompareCards.com Editorial Team

The Citi Custom Cash℠ Card has come to the market with one of the more interesting rewards programs we’ve seen in a while. Earn 5% cash back on purchases in your top eligible spend category each billing cycle, up to the first $500 spent, 1% cash back thereafter. Also, earn unlimited 1% cash back on all other purchases. What this means is that unlike some other rewards cards on the market that require you to manually opt-in to special categories each month, this card will automatically apply the highest rate of cash back to your most-used category. That makes the Citi Custom Cash℠ Card a great pick for anyone looking for a low-maintenance card that still offers an incredibly competitive cash back offer. And the sign-up bonus just sweetens the deal with a low spend threshold and a solid return in the form of ThankYou® Points.

This isn’t just a rewards card though: the Citi Custom Cash℠ Card also proves itself as a well-rounded choice with over a year of 0% intro APR on both purchases and balance transfers – and all with no annual fee. In short, this card comes with everything we look for in a wallet mainstay, from a solid rewards program to limited fees to generous periods of no interest.

The Good
  • This card has a suite of rewards tailor-made for folks who are tired of having to constantly opt-in to rewards categories on other cards to maximize their cash back earning potential.
The Not so Good
  • The $500 spend cap on earning the full 5% cash back each billing cycle can be a drawback for those regularly spend a lot in any given category every month.
The Bottom Line

Between its frankly revolutionary rewards program, great sign-up bonus and a host of other customer-centric features, the Citi Custom Cash℠ Card is a solid choice for anyone with good or excellent credit with few drawbacks.
