    Hello,
    I recently had my loan approved, but do not understand the below term

    “Funds at your promotional rate need to be authorised separately within 90 days from account approval.”

    My promotional rate is 9.99% p.a. for 4 Years. Does that mean if I don’t use the approved loan amount within the 90 days, it will revert back to the standard rate which is 19.9%?

    Thanks

      Hi John,

      Thanks for your question and for contacting finder.com.au – a financial comparison website and general information service designed to help consumers make better decisions. We do not represent Citibank or any company we feature on our pages.

      It means that you can borrow funds at the 9.99% p.a. rate by requesting an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) at account approval. When you make a request, you must ensure the payee details are correct as the receiving institution will credit the funds based solely on the details provided and Citi may not be able to recover funds sent to an unintended recipient if the incorrect BSB number and/or identifier have been provided. In case you more assistance on this, you may get in touch with Citibank directly.

      Regards,
      May

    Hi
    I would like to apply for this loan but I am curious what it means by “Good” credit history?? Is there a certain score that I need to be above?

      Hi Emma,

      “Good” credit history generally means you don’t have any negative listings such as defaults, missed or late payments on loans or credit cards, bankruptcies or serious credit infringements listed on your file. You can find out more information through our credit score guide.

      Hope this helps,

      Hi Steven,

      Unfortunately, you cannot submit a joint application for the Citibank Ready Credit. But do not worry, a list of lenders are available including banks and car loan lenders that will accept applications from people receiving Centrelink payments.

      I hope this will help.

      Thanks,
