I recently closed a Cap1 account due to a high APR and low limit. So i decided to apply for the Citi Forward card hoping for a decent credit limit. I wasn't expecting to get approved but I was. My limit is $4,000 which is my highest limit to date. I'm done applying for a year now.

 

Snier :smileyhappy:


Congrats on the card and the new high limit! 

 

Funny how it works sometimes, you expect an easy approval and you get shot down.  Or, you expect to be declined and you get a really nice surprise instead!

 

I'm glad Citi came through for you, snier!  Must feel good!

Re: Citi Card

By the way, Citi pulled TU for me.  I'm in CT. 

 

Looks like I'm the only one with a TU pull.

I don't know if I dare to apply then, because I don't know what my ex score is.  Did Citi tell you your score when they pulled ex?

 

Citi is sensitive to recent inquiries and new accounts.

That's good to know since I have new inq. on tu none on eq.  I also have a couple of new accounts.  I just got my eq and tu over the 700 mark so I will save any more credit hunting until next year.

Re: Citi Card

Since I was just approved is it possible to call Citi and found out what my credit score was when they pulled it?

Starting Score: 641
Current Score: 712
Goal Score: 780

        Look for a CLI button online after your fourth month. I believe mine appeared the same day my fourth payment posted. Automatic CLI from $4k to  

        $6K.
