It's impolite to use a foreign language in the presence (virtual or otherwise) of others who don't know the language.

ETA: I've never had a hard inquiry opening a Citibank checking or savings account. Others have reported hard credit inquiries, most with online applications. A Citi CSR told me that they use ChexSystems and use Equifax just for identity verification -- a soft credit inquiry. YMMV.

Just applied, & accepted but had to open an E-Z Checking Account & keep $1500 in them both. Scumbags.

That's only online. If you don't want the checking, open it with a rep over the phone.

Or because you didn't do it properly. I opened an ultimate savings without checking online. If you call they'll just try to make more sales pitches.

I did it properly.

It's "default" on the app, no way out of it, I also called a rep, over the phone they said the same thing.

checking doesn't even show up in my account. Odd.

"You must apply online at citibank.com or by phone to open a Citibank® Ultimate Savings Account in one of the following qualifying relationship packages: Citibank® EZ Checking, Citibank Account, Citibank Everything Counts ®, or Citigold® Account. Applicant must be a citizen or resident alien of the United States (U.S.) who is at least 18 years old with a valid U.S. taxpayer identification number. All accounts are subject to approval. Deposits are subject to Citibank's standard funds availability schedule.

**No monthly maintenance fee applies when held as a stand-alone account in the Citibank® EZ Checking relationship package. Other account charges may apply."

I think you're fine. As indicated in the **, the account does not have a monthly fee when held as a stand-alone account in the EZ checking relationship package. That's how mine is setup. My confirmation e-mail said:
"Citibank would like to take this opportunity to thank you for opening Citibank® EZ Checking with the following product(s):
Citibank® Ultimate Savings Account"
The wording is confusing but that does NOT mean I have a checking account. I am confident of this fact because everytime I make a deposit to my ultimate savings account in a branch, they bug me to open a checking account.

thanks!
