Has anyone been approved for this card lately and is willing to share their credit profile? I'm planning on applying for this card in the future (post garden!), but think it may be a tough card to get. Citi isn't the biggest fan of mine but I currently have one citi card which I hope will improve my chances. Just curious where it ranks on the difficulty scale compared to other cards.
For short term gratification and backdating goodness I chose the Hilton Surpass card $75 AF but 40,000 pts first purchase and 20,000 after 3k spend enough for two nights at a level 3 property, and 12pts at hiltonds, 6pts on gas, groceries, and 3pts everywhere else and Instant gold status for the first year. After the first year you can get the Citi Hilton HHonors card that gets you 2 weekend stays and gold status for life but doesn't pay as well.
