Re: Citi Diamond Preferred Card "credit score" for approval

I'd want to wait to apply until I had about 675+ on TU or EQ with low util.

I think they consider more than Credit Score.   I was declined for this card because I have a paid chargeoff on my report.

I just approved for the Diamond Preferred Rewards MasterC...

I just approved for the Diamond Preferred Rewards MasterCard a few weeks ago. I would assume it is similar in requirements.

My scores are listed below. They pulled EQ in my case.

I do have to say that I'm not overly impressed with the card so far.
4/25: TU 793, EQ 791, EX ?

Citi Diamond Preferred Card (What "credit score" would get an approval on this card???)

Thank you for the very quick advise!!!
 
My EQ score is 637 right now..........it should go up a few points (10-30) within the next month as I have lowered my UTI but I wanted to check.
 
I do have some charges off that have yet to come off my credit report (with within the next two years) so that would probably hurt me.
 
Also, my TU score isn't as good as EQ as I have to school loans that were a payment after charge off (so they say) and were supposed to be removed from all three of the Credit Bureau's but was only removed from EQ.........so my score with is around 600!  =(
 
Mainly, I am just trying to get my credit better so I can finally get a good credit card (low interest, higher then 1K limit)!  I am sure it will happne one day............

They pull EQ almost exclusively.  I got the Citi Platinum Select M/C when my score was around 620 with virtually no credit history.  Started at 500 limit.  Citi hates inquiries, lates, high util and BK.  So if you are clean in those departments you should be good to go.

Well my UTI is pretty hight right now............I am not over on any cards but it is still high so if they don't like that I won't do good right now with them!  =(
 
I have several accounts (car loan & 2 short term loans - one paid off last year and one in good standing) already with Citi though does that account for anything with them???

They just denied my CLI request because of High balance to limit on one or more cards.
