Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve

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.



Chase Sapphire Preferred $12k | Chase Freedom $7k | Chase United MileagePlus Explorer $15k | Chase Hyatt Visa $11.8k | Chase Amazon Visa $3k | Citi TY Premier $8.5k | Amex SPG $13.5k | Amex HHonors $5k | Discover IT $9k | BofA Cash Rewards $6k | BofA BB Rewards $2.7k | Banana Republic Visa $3k

Re: Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve

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.



Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Sally Mae5k Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
