My DS just got approved last week for the Citi Thank You World MC - initial CL $2,600. He received the card today - activated it online - and then called the number on the back to request CLI - and after speaking with an analyst - they increased his initial CL to $8,000. (He asked for $10,000 and they countered). I would say it's definitely worth calling when you receive the card.

Citi is pretty good with CLIs but they almost always will HP you. My Citi card initally was approved at 3.5k. After having the card a few months, I requested a CLI to 8k and was approved with a HP. I requested it online but still had to call in.

Also with Citi, they only let you request CLIs 6 months from the last request. So right now, I'm not eligible for a CLI because I just recently had one and it hasn't been 6 months yet.

OP: PM me and I'll give you the real executive office contact for Citi's credit division.
