Citi: combining cards--effect on CLI's

I currently have 3 Citi cards; 2 are the DPR and DP cards.  DPR has a $1500 limit and DP has a $7600 limit; DPR is older.  If I combine the 2 cards (putting the DPR limit to $9100), will this affect my chances of getting a CLI on this card? 
 
I'm thinking that if it does, I'll wait until I get a CLI, then I'll combine.  If it doesn't, then I'll combine now. 
 
Any thoughts?

I don't know exactly how it would work, but I personally would get my CLIs before combining.

Re: Citi: combining cards--effect on CLI's

I have 2 Citi cards and love them both. A Cash Returns, and a plain ole vanilla D.P. card. I've considered combining them as well, but not sure I want to as both are at $7,500 cl's.

I agree with other poster. Go for the cli first, THEN do the combining. Smiley Wink

I'm in love with the new payment tags. Only problem is they all look the same.

I believe it will affect the CLIs. I combined my Citi mtvU visa and Platinum MC. I pressed the luv button online and was told that I needed to wait 6 months because of my recent CLI. Of course, YMMV, but that has been my experience with Citi. As others have stated, I would go for the CLIs, then combine.

Couldn't get a CLI on my 7 month old Pro card but they had no problem giving me a 5K DP last week. Citi likes to hit me with EX pulls. Smiley Happy
