Just Approved Citibank Double Cash

I was on CK looking around and worked up the nerve to do the app for DC. After 60 seconds got a message to call a 866 number to give more information to complete approval process. I called and CSR was cool. All I did was confirm my name and birthdate and 5 minutes later she told me I was approved for $1700. Should get the card in 7-10 days. I already knew the SL would be rather low from what I have read here in the forums. Will use often once I get it and and work the cli's every 6 months going forward. Build it and they will come.
If you build it, they will come.

Re: Just Approved Citibank Double Cash

Rumor has it, Citi are known to grant CLI on brand new DCs.  You might want to give that a shot if you can take another HP to EQ and EX.


I pulled the trigger on mine the day it arrived.  Got it bumped from $4500 to $6K (requested $10K).


Going forward I'll probably wait until the CLI request screen looks like it'll just do a SP.

Re: Just Approved Citibank Double Cash

Yep, they are known for low SLs, soft pull CLIs and APR reductions. So you take the good, you take the bad...  And if you want to take a HP go for a higher CL. Welcome to Citi. I got it cause I needed a Citi card for certain concert presales.
