Citi BT and CLI offer


Well, CITI is still offering some people CLIs...


Conversation with my wife just now:


Me: "This is addressed to you, dunno what it is but the only folks in South Dakota who send us mail are credit card companies [see this]"


Her: "It's a balance transfer offer from Citibank [she and I both have individual Citi cards], and it comes with a $2300 increase in my credit limit.  I have no balance to transfer, but it says I can also deposit it in my checking account.  Should I do it to get the credit increase, then next month pay the balance in full?"


Me: "What's your limit on that card now?"


Her: "$15K."


Me: "Not worth it, $15K is plenty."

Re: Citi BT and CLI offer

I have been trying to see if there is something out there that I could do a balance transfer but I don't know if I could be approved due to my credit scores.  EQ -668; TU 678 EXP 640 2/09.   Now I have EQ 645, TU 692 and EXP 675 according to Experian site.  I have approximately 5000 in credit card debt and would like to see if I could do a balance transfer for a good interest rate and get this taken care of.  I don't know who would give me this.  Would appreciate any information you coould send me.

Re: Citi BT and CLI offer

Approval for CC isn't based solely on scores. might want to start a new thread here asking your may be read by more people with an answer for you that way.
