Ah, should have known:

After extolling its new features, Citibank's Simplicity card offer warns that late payments could trigger an increase in the interest rate charged on balances as well as a negative credit report. Such reports often cause other lenders to boost interest rates on a consumer's other outstanding debts.

So they are after the ones that habitually pay late, but do pay, so they can kick the rate. But they can do that anyway...

Bottom feeders.
