Article Body:
The Citi Upromise Card, issued by Citibank, is intended for use by those

cardholders to earn a 10% rebate on select purchases. With over 7,000
grocery and drugstore items, a 2% rebate on gasoline purchased at Exxon

build up a nice college fund for the future.


The card has an introductory interest rate of 0% that also applies to any
balance transfers and has no annual fee. The introductory rate is good
