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!

I love that you called one place for your prestige and citi went and got "the other places" on the phone to cli the co branded cards... Glad I through out the $40k number... Amazing yet odd that they couldn't just give $40k but I mean those are really close and not on 1 but all!!!
And I keep looking at the 1 combined prestige over and over and still can't believe it!!

Super congrats to you!
