Citibank Closed Inactive Account - Merge with other Citi product?

Citi closed an old ConocoPhillips Mastercard I had for inactivity. It was a small account, but one of my older ones.

 

I know Citi is hellbent on not re-activating these accounts, but I wonder if it's a crazy idea to ask them to merge this old account with another Citi card I currently use.

 

Any input?

 

Thanks,

 

Jesse

My bet is Citi wont re-open a closed acct just to combine,But if you decide to call and try post a follow up.

I'm sure they will pull your report if you ask them to re-open your account.

From my experiences with re-opening closed accounts, creditors have asked me if I give them the permission to pull my reports in order for them to even consider opening my account and I said "no thanks".
