A line of credit is a credit facility with a predetermined limit which you can draw down upon as required. A line of credit can be helpful for cash flow management, as it allows access to funds as and when required, without needing to reapply.

What might a line of credit be suitable for?
Citi Ready Credit is very flexible and can be used for a range of purposes to suit your lifestyle, for example:
A milestone celebration
Unexpected expenses such as a vet bill or school fees
Or general cash flow management to allow you to budget better as expenses may go up and down each month.
Citi Ready Credit is not suitable for debt consolidation, investment purposes or living expenses.
What is a balance transfer and how could it help me to save on interest?
A balance transfer is when you move an outstanding amount you owe, called a balance, from a credit card or a personal loan over to another account
The new account you move the balance over to should have no or a low interest rate for an introductory period
If you pay off the balance in full before the introductory period expires then this can result in you paying less in interest and save you money
Citi Ready Credit is an alternative to a personal loan or a balance transfer credit card and has a great low rate of just 3.99% p.a. for 3 years on the initial balance transferred.1
How can I make a balance transfer work for me?
1. Make sure you know how long the low or no interest rate period is and ensure you pay off the balance in time – Citi Ready Credit has a 3 year balance transfer period
2. Make sure the credit limit you’re approved for on your new balance transfer is high enough to cover your existing balance being transferred over
3. Plan out your monthly repayments to ensure you can afford to pay off the balance on time
4. It’s a good idea to limit your ongoing purchases and cash advances on your old credit cards, and Citi Ready Credit, to what you can afford to repay. If your balance transfer was to pay off old credit card debt you should cancel or reduce the credit limit of that card.
Am I ok to apply if I’m already a customer?
Absolutely. Existing customer can apply, but must have all other Citi credit accounts in good working order for at least 6 months before applying for another Citi credit product.
What documents do I need for a loan application?
Here's a quick checklist of the documents you'll need to apply:
Proof of employment
Top tip: upload these documents with your application for a faster review.
