Citi ThankYou Preferred Approved

[ Edited ]

So I finally gave in to the pre-approved mailing that I've been getting from Citi about the ThankYou Preferred and I applied.

 

I got the 7-10 day message with a phone number to call for instant decision. I called immediately and was told that I was approved for a CL of $2,000 with 11.99% APR and the reason I was asked to call was so they could offer to move upto $2,500 of my current $12,000 CL on my Forward card to my new ThankYou card.

 

So I moved $1,500 from the Forward to the ThankYou, so $3,500 CL on ThankYou and $10,500 CL on Forward.

 

Not ideal but this is now my lowest APR card. I just hope they pulled EQ instead of EX like they normally do for me.

Congrats! I just got Citi Dividend and am looking at Forward for a possible PC. I can see why you have 2 of them. Citi's rewards are so different among the different cards!
