How to Apply for the Citi Double Cash Credit Card

The Citi Double Cash Credit Card, a credit card offered and administered by Citi Bank, offers double cash back. That means 2% total cash back, or 1% when you make a purchase, and 1% when you pay off that purchase later on. If you’re in search of a card with big rewards and a $0 annual fee, this could very well be the card for you.
