Citi credit cards
As the third-largest credit card issuer in the U.S., Citibank’s credit card division is one of the biggest parts of the bank’s business. Consumers can apply for 19 different types of consumer credit cards and six types of student credit cards. Bankrate gives an in-depth comparison of two Citi credit cards here.
Citibank suffered from its parent company’s public struggles during the 2008 housing collapse and financial downturn. The U.S. government supplied the financial company with billions of dollars in emergency bailout funds to avoid an impending collapse.
