Our verdict

Offers 0% interest on balance transfers for 28 months, but make sure you factor in the 2% balance transfer fee.

The Citi Clear credit card gives you a long 0% balance transfer period with this introductory offer, which can help if you have existing debt you want to pay off. To give you an idea of the potential savings, if you transferred an average balance of $3,023 to this card and did not add to your credit card debt, you could save $884.28 over the 28-month introductory period, compared to what you'd pay if the average standard credit card rate of 20.07% was charged. This is based on Finder's balance transfer credit card comparison table calculator and factors in both the annual fee and the 2% balance transfer fee (which would be $60.46 in this example).

Pros

  • 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 28 months with a one-time 2% BT fee
  • Extended warranty and purchase insurance options
  • Up to 4 additional cardholders at no extra cost

Cons

  • Balance transfer reverts to a high 22.24% p.a. cash advance rate
  • No rewards program or travel insurance

The Citi Clear credit card currently has one of the longest 0% balance transfer offers on the market when you apply and are approved. It also has a purchase interest rate of 14.99% p.a., which is competitive with other low rate cards that offer complimentary insurance and other perks. But you won’t be eligible for interest-free days on purchases if you have a balance transfer.
