We kindly inform that following the Monetary Policy Council decision from January 4th 2022 on increasing the interest rates, we have increased the interest rates on Citibank credit cards.
Since January 5th 2022, the interest rates on Citibank credit cards are: 11% for agreements signed until November 30th 2018 and 11,5% for agreements signed from December 1st 2018.
We inform that since December 15th, 2019, the Bank does not charge a commission for transactions converted dynamically from an original currency to a card account currency by a service provider at the moment of transaction (DCC – dynamic currency conversion).
The change results from the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2019/518 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 March 2019 amending Regulation (EC) No 924/2009 as regards certain charges on cross-border payments in the Union and currency conversion charges.
We would like to remind you that the Bank charges a commission for Special transactions in the amount indicated in the Table of Fees and Commissions for Citibank Credit Cards. Special transactions are i.a. transactions with entities providing services in the field of currency exchange, virtual currencies and means of payment, and intermediaries in exchange. Examples of entities of this type are Revolut or Transferwise.
The current amount of commission for Special transactions is 10% of the Transaction value, not less than PLN 20. The current Table of Fees and Commissions is available on the Bank's website here>
In accordance with the provisions of the Credit Card Regulations of Bank Handlowy w Warszawie S.A. the full definition of a Special transaction is as follows:
Special transaction - a transaction subject to repayment, interest rate and fees or commissions charged on the terms specified in the Regulations and the Table of Fees and Commissions for Cash Transactions, i.e .:
The Bank charges a Commission for a Special Transaction with entities providing services in the field of currency exchange, virtual currencies and means of payment, and intermediaries in the exchange, because as a result of such a transaction, the Customer's account maintained on these platforms is credited, and not the purchase of goods or services. The settlement systems report to the Bank such a top-up as an account top-up by transferring funds from the credit card to the Client's account kept with another entity. The Bank has no access to further operations that the Client carries out with the use of the transferred funds. A special commission for a transaction is charged when a virtual purse is topped up, and not for a direct payment from a credit card for a specific product or service.
