Well you took the "hit", so you might as well give them a call.. They are not that good with re-cons.

 

I would call... Good luck!

Between the BK and the high util., I don't think you really have a chance...but if you really want the card, it can't hurt (as long as you make sure they don't pull your credit again).

It's hard to justify hard util, I tried with chase in february to no avail. But you did take the HP already, I would recon and see if you get a break.

If you really want a Citi product, just get a secured card.  I did that when they turned me down for a reg card.  I gave them 2k and in 18 months will unseucre then can do a PC to the card I want.

If you go that route make sure you put down enough of a deposit to get the card you want to PC charge to.
