Whooo hoooo my first "big boy limit"

So im supposed to be in the Garden for the next few months but i have really been wanting to apply for the Citi Forward due to the amount of money i spend on eating out and the 5% the forward gives for that. I was actually planning on waiting until Jan. to apply but i decided to go a Drapping tonight, seeing as how im on vacation leave from work and have been Extremly Bored and Patron got the best of me!! INSTANTLY APPROVED! I Was praying that Citi would pull EX, as it is my best report but much to my suprise they Pulled EQ, which is my worst report. But,nonetheless, I was Approved!!!! and not only that, but for a $6,000 CL!!!!!! My highest CL by FAR!!! almost doubling my current high CL!!! Im Completely Blown Away! Seeing as how Citi is Inq sensitive, its kind of crazy. just a little info in my EQ report, i have 18 inq's and 5 new accounts in the last 6months, but no baddies. CITI listed my EQ score as a 699 on a scale of 250 to 900? Holy Crap, Im in complete Shock right now! I finally broke the 5k barrier! Citi ROCKS!!!

 

Does anyone know if you can get a Visa Siggy version of the Forward?



Starting Score: EQ 609, EX 633(Fako), TU 700
Current Score: EQ 699, EX 758, TU 733
