Last updated on September 6th, 2023

Citi has made changes to the popular Citi® Diamond Preferred® Card. The changes include a card art refresh, new offers for cardmembers, and more. Here’s what you need to know about the makeover of the card:

Citi Refreshes the Diamond Preferred Credit Card

The Citi Diamond Preferred Card is one of the market’s premier balance transfer credit cards. With 21 months of 0% APR on balance transfers and 12 months with zero interest on purchases, few cards can boast the same lengthy promotional periods as the Diamond Preferred – although the Citi Simplicity was nearly identical.

Now Citi is giving the card a makeover, with a slate of refreshed benefits for existing and new Citi Diamond Preferred card members. Despite the modest changes, however, the great introductory APR periods remain unchanged – as does the no annual fee. Here’s what you can expect from the changes:

Enhanced Offers Platform

Citi Easy Deals is now “My Deals” and is newly available on the Citi Mobile App and Citi Online. My Deals will continue to give Citi Diamond Preferred cardmembers easy access to national and local coupons across categories such as dining, shopping, and entertainment. Even better, Citi selects custom coupons for your location, ensuring you only get the deals that matter to you.

Diamond Preferred Cardholders still receive access to Citi Merchant Offers, a deals program that provides statement credits or bonus ThankYou points when making eligible purchases with a Citi credit card.

Updated Savings Spotlight Feature

Savings Spotlight will now be available on the Citi Mobile App and Citi Online with a new look. Cardmembers can easily track their total savings from interest rate promotions and My Deals offers

New Modern Card Art

The Citi Diamond Preferred Card now has a contemporary design that features the card name at the center to create a cohesive appearance across the Citi credit card portfolio. Existing Diamond Preferred cardmembers will automatically receive the newly designed credit card several weeks before their current card expires.

Here’s the new design and the old one:

The Best Balance Transfer Credit Cards

As mentioned, the Diamond Preferred from Citi is one of the best balance transfer credit cards today thanks to its dual impressive intro APR periods:  21-month  and 12-month (on balance transfers and purchases). These periods are among the longest 0% intro APR periods on a major credit card, joining other offers from Wells Fargo, Chase, U.S Bank, and more.
