Avoiding Citibank Monthly Banking Fees

However, you can avoid the Basic Banking account monthly fee by making 1 direct deposit and 1 bill payment per statement period.
Citigold Account Package – Monthly service fee is waived if you maintain a combined average monthly balance of $50,000 in deposits and retirement balances OR $100,000 in combined average monthly balances in deposits, retirement, investments, credit cards, and loans/lines of credit excluding first mortgage, otherwise a $30 monthly service fee is applied. Effective November 1, 2016, the $30 monthly service fee will be eliminated for customers in The Citigold Account Package. If you do not maintain a minimum combined average monthly balance of $200,000 in eligible deposits, retirement accounts and investment balances, your Citigold Account Package will be converted to a different banking package and your accounts will be subject to the terms and conditions then in effect for that package.
