Citi Home Depot card

 Does a Citibank Home Depot card appear on a credit report simply as a Citibank credit card? Would it be easier to get than the other straight up Citi cards? I am interested in developing a relationship with Citi but am afraid I don't have the credit reports to get approved. However, getting approved for Home Depot may be easier. Then later, I could apply for another Citi card once I have a relationship with the firm. Someone from another website gave me the idea so i wish to credit them here. Anyway, any opinions? I am not going to do this now as i am in the garden. But hypothetically? Maybe the best thing to do would be to try for a Citi dividend card and if denied apply for citi home depot? Or apply for home depot first? Can anyone help me figure this out?

I'm considering this or Lowes for business purposes. The underwriting may be less because its a co-branded card....However 

 

BTW....hypothetically speaking the garden has upgraded equipment for repeated offenders Lol

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
