Approved for Citiforward Card

Does anyone else have this card. I applied Friday had to fax them some documentation they approved my application today well that's what the automated system just told me. How can I find out what my CL is?

Re: Approved for Citiforward Card

I applied and got Forward in August 09 with a starting CL of 4000.  They didn't ask for any documentation for me, however this was before the CARD act.  I am still (technically) a student by the way.

 

At about the five-month mark, the CLI option appeared and they upped me from 4000 to 5500.

 

While the card doesn't have the best in terms of average reward points, if you use it exclusively for restaurants and movies (5x points) it's great.  Using 5x points and then redeeming for statement credits yields a little over 3% back, assuming of course you pay in full.

 

They also gave me 6 months intro 0% interest, however I didn't utilize this.

Current Cards:
American Express Blue Cash Preferred - March 2007 - CL $10,000
Citi Forward Visa Signature - September 2009 - CL $6,500
Chase Freedom - March 2011 - CL $15,000
Chase Sapphire Preferred - May 2013 - CL $12,500
Discover It - November 2013 - $5,000
Barclay Arrival - January 2014 - $10,000

They pulled EQ which is funny cause in the past every citi card i have always applied they always have pulled EX. I had a collection fall off my reports last week my EQ fico score jumped to 710 no baddies like 15 inquiries.

Re: Approved for Citiforward Card

I had a product change from Citi Dividend Platinum to Citi Forward. All the benefits except for intro 0% rate apply.

 

This is my favourite card because of 5x points for restaurants, movies, and books.
