Citi Thank You Preferred Offer in the mail

I received a offer from citi today that I was really shocked to see. Here is a background on my credit file. I filled BK this year in january and in march I was discharged, I have had a cap 1 secured card since january, a credit one since june and recently a merrick bank in august all of this year. I have a age of account of 4 years. I have one car loan through santander.

 

Since BK I have never been late on anything. But i'm thinking that this citi offer is a bit premature for me to approved for. What does everyone else think? I don't thnk I should apply for it but it sure is nice to see offers like this coming in.

Seems like Citi likes throwing marketing money away then.

Re: Citi Thank You Preferred Offer in the mail

I wouldn't waste the inquiry.  Your BK is way too new for an approval.  Sounds like Citi's pre-approval guidelines need to be fixed!!!
