Re: Applied for citi,should I recon?

I would wait it out and see what they say. They may want to verify some information. Personally, I would call the application status number and ask if they needed any additional information.

What's your credit look like? And congrats on the new car too

Thanks for the congrats on my auto lease. My scores before today's two inquiries was about a 705.EQ-FICO. You think I should call and ask if they need additional info for Citi card?

I would def call in. They may want to verify an address or something small. If they say you just need to wait... then wait and hope for the best.

Just called the credit recon number.Rep told me that the application was not denied or approved and simply needed manual processing.Will wait and see I guess. Tempted to app for American Express.

I'm on the ole so special list.........the blacklist!! But, spoke to someone in another department and was told that based on my previous pay history with American Express I would be a good fit for another card ONCE I pay my prior bill off.Glad I applied because now I know what must be done. Must say they were very pleasant and there was NOT a hard pull.

Thinking about going after Barclays or discover.Which is easier?

Barclays, as long as your not heavy on INQ's with TU but they are easy to recon.

Than you LS

Will have to go for the Barclays and try my score/luck. I will wait till after my CC payment hits on the 31th of this month.Should be down to 3% utlization. Was kinda fun trying for credit been a while since I did this. If I get just one additional card will then be heading to the garden and wait for march 2013 when my collection should fall off.
