Citi Retail Services and CITGO Petroleum Corporation today announced a multi-year renewal of their long-standing U.S. private label credit card relationship. This extension is the latest in a series of new and renewed partnerships between the recently rebranded Citi Retail Services and leading retailers, such as CITGO, across the country.
“CITGO is one of the leading providers of petroleum products in the United States, and we are thrilled to extend our successful partnership with the company,” said Leslie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Partnership Management, Citi Retail Services. “We are committed to providing top-tier products and services - both now and with exciting new products in the future - and our renewal with CITGO is the latest affirmation that we are living up to that commitment.”
Citi has provided branded payment products to CITGO since 1995. These payment cards not only allow CITGO retail locations to quickly and efficiently process purchases, but they also give customers added convenience and flexibility when buying fuel and convenience store items.
