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'm in the 700 club now! :smileyhappy:

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

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. :smileywink:

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. :smileyhappy:
