Perhaps they know you are sensitive to saving trees. They may be doing this, so you get their card, just to save the trees.

Re: Citi will not leave me alone....................

Everybody always gets the good offers :smileytongue: my citi one is for the TYP, but seems to be a preselected since it gives a variable rate of 12.99%-22.99% "based on creditworthiness".


No points, just a 0% for 18 months offer on purchases and balance transfers :/ don't plan on biting for new cards anyway, but c'mon, give me some good sign up bonuses if you want to tempt me :smileywink:

Yeah, but your shredder probably doesn't like the sticky glue they like to use in their mailings.

That's my second annoyance with these things, after the identity theft issue.

Re: Citi will not leave me alone....................

Citi bombs my mailbox too...but only for preapprovals for the Diamond Preferred, which is worthless to me.  The only way they can get my attention is if they send me a really awesome AAdvantage offer.  I wanna see at least 50k miles! :-p

Re: Citi will not leave me alone....................

I know how you feel.

I get on average two invites for the B.O.A. 1-2-3 card every week. . .

I would never do business with them for multiple reasons so it's rather annoying to open the mailbox and find them.
Amex B.C.E. - $2.5k - N.C.F.C.U.M.C. - $5k - Amex Gold - NPSL/35k P.O.T. - Discover More - $12k - Sam's Club M.C. - $10k -
Walmart M.C. - $7.5k - Citi T.Y.P. - $10k- Chase Freedom - $5k -

Re: Citi will not leave me alone....................

I don't understand Citi. I been getting all these good offers lately with rewards and sign up bonuses, but Citi still always just sends me the same lame offer over and over. No rewards or sign up bonuses just a basic CC. Back when I actually wanted a Citi card, they didn't want anything to do with me (=
AMEX BCE $7,100 eBay MasterCard $5,000 SallieMae MasterCard $1,100 Emigrant Direct $4,500 Wells Fargo Platinum $1,500
Belk Rewards $1,700 Amazon Rewards $3,000 WalMart Discover $1,200 Barclay's Rewards $1,000 Discover More $2,800

What's in your wallet? : D
