  •  

    The cash advance or cash withdrawal feature is available on most of the credit cards offered by Citibank. It allows the cardholders to withdraw cash from ATMs using their credit cards. The facility acts as an emergency fund or instant loan as it can be availed at any point of time without submitting any documents to the bank nor by getting any further approvals.

    Withdrawing cash using a credit card is as simple as withdrawing cash using a debit card from the ATM. However, with regards to credit card cash withdrawal, there are a few fees and charges involved. Hence, cardholders should be aware of all the terms and conditions of Citibank credit card cash advance feature before availing it.

    Provided below are all the details one needs to know about the cash advance feature.

     

    What Is Citibank Credit Card Cash Withdrawal?

    While the basic feature of a credit card allows users to conduct card-based transactions, the cash advance feature, on the other hand, enables cash withdrawals using a credit card. The Citibank card cash advance feature thus allows eligible Citibank credit card users to avail the cash withdrawal benefit using their credit cards. The facility can be availed at all domestic and international ATMs that accept Visa or MasterCard/Maestro cards.

     

    Citibank Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Limit

    The cash advance limit on a credit card is the amount available for cash withdrawal on the card. Just like the credit limit on the card, cardholders should withdraw cash within the cash limit and not beyond that.

    Typically cash limit is a percentage or portion of total credit limit on the card. For instance, if the total credit limit on the card is Rs.50,000, cash limit would be around 30-40% of the credit limit.

    Citibank also sets a cash limit on its credit cards. However, the cash withdrawal limit is typically communicated to the cardholder at the time of card issuance. As each card carries a different cash limit, you need to check the terms and conditions of your card to know the credit limit and cash limit on your credit card. Further, the bank may also set a cap on the minimum and maximum cash allowed for withdrawal per ATM transaction. Also, the withdrawal limit would be different for transactions made at Citibank ATMs and non-Citibank ATMs. All such details will also be communicated by the bank at the time of delivery of the card.

     

    Citibank Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Fee

    Cash advance fee is the charge levied for every cash withdrawal made using a credit card. Everytime you withdraw cash using your credit card, you will be charged with a transaction fee which will be added to your next month billing cycle.

    Citibank collects a credit card cash advance fee of 2.5% of the withdrawn amount or Rs.500, whichever is higher. If you withdraw twice a day, you will be charged for both the transactions based on the billed amount. Further, the cash advance fee also attracts finance charges equal to the charges levied on the withdrawn amount. And the interest will be charged from the date of transaction till the amount is repaid in full.

     

    Interest Charges On Citibank Cash Withdrawal

    Just like the regular credit card transactions, credit card cash advances also attract finance charges or interest charges. However, the only difference between the two transactions is that while card transactions have interest free period, cash transactions are not eligible for any such period. All the cash withdrawals will be charged with interest as applicable from the date of transaction till the due is cleared in full.

    Citibank charges a different interest rate on cash advances for each credit card. It also reviews the rates periodically after analysing certain performance parameters including the usage of the card, total spends, repayment pattern, default payments, if any, and other credit information received from the credit bureaus.

    • For first time credit card users, except for the Citi Ultima Credit Card users, the bank charges an initial interest rate of 3.25% per month or 39% per annum.
    • For other Citibank credit cards, the interest rate may vary from 3.1% p.m. to 3.40% p.m. or 37.2% p.a. to 40.80% p.a. The rate is applicable only when the account is in good standing and all the outstanding dues are cleared on time.
    • For default payments, that is for those who fail to pay even the minimum amount due, Citibank charges interest of up to 3.5% p.m. or 42% p.a.

    The interest will be charged from the date of transaction till the amount is paid back in full. Hence, there is no interest free period for cash advance transactions.

     

    How To Withdraw Cash Using A Citibank Credit Card?

    Withdrawing cash using a Citibank Credit Card is almost similar to withdrawing cash using a debit card. All you need to do is visit any of Citibank ATM kiosks, insert your credit card in the card slot and follow the instructions for cash withdrawal. Step-by-step process is provided below.

    • Visit Citibank ATM kiosk
    • Insert your credit card and enter the PIN, the same PIN which you use for credit card transactions
    • Select ‘Cash withdrawal’ from the menu
    • Enter the amount and press ‘ok’

    Once the cash is dispensed, you will receive a message on your registered mobile number. The amount will be debited from the total cash limit and credited to the total outstanding on the card. Before withdrawing the cash using the credit card, you need to check the available cash limit on the card to prevent over withdrawal.
