Well, on the upside you were able to get the CLI on your BB MC which is stil good.  Technically, although Citibank is the parent entity, Citi Retail Services is a little more lenient in U/W policies than it's sibling, Citi Cards.

You got dat straight.  Thanks, Fin.  Your notes have been great and a big motivator for me doing on here what I've been doing.  And following the advice, I've literally raised the collective Credit Limits from $24K to $48.5K ... a whopping 49.8% increase; and the balances are around $2500 ... And I've gotten my AMEX back; and now a Chase Freedom ... this site and you all were a GOD send.

I'm glad to hear the opportunities have opened up for you.  There's all kinds of great information on this site and lots of great folks who share their experiences and insight.  So, overall a commendable achievement on your part including re-establishing your AMEX relationship.
