Citi CLI question- UPDATE

[ Edited ]

What is the best way to ask Citi for a CLI to get only a SP? 

 

phone? online? 

 

Will they counter offer or do you need to be conservative in what you ask for?

Re: Citi CLI question

I did mine online and it was a SP. They will counter if its too high and if you dont accept then it becomes a HP. I always request what I think makes sense, but request what you want. If they cant do it then accept the counter Smiley Happy

Re: Citi CLI question

Over the phone, they'll be able to tell you if its a SP or HP. 

 

Online, you won't know until its too late IIRC.

Re: Citi CLI question- UPDATE

I ran $6000 though mr citi card in six months. Always PIF. I had a cl of $1500. At the sixth month mark I asked for a CLI. It was a HP & denied. No one at citi would help me out & I tried to recon with no success. Let's just say I was not happy.
I put a BT on the card & it's sat in my draw & that's where it will stay.

My score had not dropped. A few more inquiries but due to auto refinance. Couldn't understand it. Was gutted.

Sometimes there is no logic...had a citi secured card opened in sept 2009 with a CL of 200.00

charged 14k on it over 18 months, when it unsecured I did not get an increse and it has been a year and a half  since unsecured and PIF and never late and never a single charge over 200 and still no increase...I will just keep the card open, use it PIF and wait...

No, I lied. I callled DISCOVER and they said no.  I'm not going to call Citi until after I hit 6 months, which will be on the 21st.  I can be a ditz sometimes.   LOL

Discover isn't known for great CLIs. Hope you have better luck with Citi! Smiley Happy

I got a CLI with discover from 2500 to 9100. But I use it heavily! went from not using a lot to using it a lot for months and they bumped it automaically 3 months after I got a 1500 cli requested because I was maxing it out and PIF.

Re: Citi CLI question- UPDATE

How often can you request a CLI from CITI? I requested one online about 4 months ago. The system countered with a slightly lower increase and I took it.
