Additional details

Details of rewards and redemptions

The Citi Custom Cash℠ card works on category rotation for its best rewards, giving you 5% cash back on select categories, up to $500, before dropping to a 1% flat fee thereafter. The category changes based on your own shopping habits, including spending at places like restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, and pharmacies. You can even earn on your live entertainment purchases.

All other purchases receive unlimited 1% cash back on your other purchases. You’ll also get an introductory APR of 0% for the first 15 months on your purchases and balance transfers.

Cash back is issued via ThankYou® points, but you have the flexibility to redeem them however you like, with options for statement credits, direct deposit or check. You can also redeem your points for travel, gift cards, and even Amazon.com for easy and flexible redemption. There’s no annual fee to update your income, so you can put your money where it’s best served.
