Citi card question

So I've decided to apply for a Platinum Select card. One of my current cards is Key Bank MC issued by Citi. Will this have any impact on my new Citi account? I'm worried that they may give me a smaller line because I already have enough credit with their Co-branded Key Bank MC. Will it matter? Or a co-branded bank is a totally different account and it will not influence my new card? Thank you

Re: Citi card question

You can still  get approve for another Citi back card.  I have the Citi Platinum Select with a $4000 CL. Two months later, I apped for a Sears Citi backed card.  I got approved for $3600 on it.  Good luck!

Re: Citi card question

Thanks, but the question was a little different. I know they will approve me, I want to know if the existing CL with them will influence my new line. Is it a different CL for each card as that would be with different banks or is it more like ammount of credit with 1 particular lending institution? I know some people have 3-4 Citi cards and all of them have decent CL... Amex just put a on my Gold Card which was supposed to be no pre-set and ajust to my spending habits and payment history blah blah blah just because I raised my limit on their Blue Cash card... I wonder how Citi treats their multiple card owners

They may match your existing CL if you're approved.
