25 Years Citi $124,300 Limit Card & Store Cards

This is an update to my old post.

You can read it HERE.

http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Cards/25-Years-52K-Limit-Citi-Prestige-150K-Total-Citi/td-p/2...

 

Thought I would make a new post so I could show all the new images.

Please also keep in mind it took 25 years to get this kind of a limit with Citi.

 

 

Yesterday I applied for a Citi Prestige card and got approved right away. Then after a lot of thinking and talking with some people I called to combine the limits of my two main Citi cards. My 25 year old Dividend World Master card and the new Prestige card. After about an hour on the phone and talking to about 5 people it was all said and done. They combined the limits and I got approved for all the CLI’s.  

 

 

I got my 25 year old card changed from the Dividend World Master card to the new Prestige card with the combined limits so I will not need to close that card and can keep going hopefully anything 25 years.

 

 

I was asked by the last people I talked to how much would I like on my other cards. I said $40,000.00 as recommended on here. Then how much money did I make and have in the bank and if I would be willing to provide proof if needed. I said yes I would. He said Thank You and after about 20 more minutes all was done can I can use my old card until the new one comes in but both will still work until the old one expires. Ill post updated photos below.  

 

 

Needless to say I think I'm done asking for things from Citi for now. I guess this just goes to show that if you stay with somebody for a long time they will give you what you want.

 

 

All I can say is Thank You Citi!

Also thanks for all the help and advice with my last post!

Holy crap... 124,300 I fell off my chair no joke... 

 

This is crazy... If you dont mind me asking what is your income level.

 

Also what is the most usage you have ever had. I also have multiple cards with one bank not citi, but the reason why i wouldnt combine them is that what if 5 years down the road they see you never use so much credit. And to decrease their exposure to you they decrease your limit ???
