Citibank Tiers

Does anybody know the tier levels on Citi cards. Which cards are harder to obtain in there little universe known as Citibank. I dont think anybody has ever broken this down or it may be impossible because nobody actually knows the underwriting requirements for there cards.

Re: Citibank Tiers

The Forward used to be their general "entry-level" card, but it probably got too popular and is now only open to students. The sad part is that it was/is one of Citi's most desirable cards.
EX: 758 (10/12), TU: ???, EQ: ???

Re: Citibank Tiers

thanks for the response, I know that my AAdvantage was very difficult to obtain and on the acceptance letter the score was 720 and I had to recon to get that card through the exectutive office,

Their top tier card used to be The Chairman, but it was discontinued fairly recently.  It was another of those "by invitation" high AF-type cards.  It's since been replaced by "the New Citi Prestige Card" with the attendant $400 AF for the price of admission.  It is, however, a card that one can apply for on line, not a "by invitation only" card.  

 

Citi Executive/AA Advantage World Elite MasterCard is another of their high end cards with a $450 AF.  Again, a card that one can apply for on line.  

 

They have several cards with AF ranging from $95-125, and then cards with AF in the $50 ballpark.  Last but not least are the no fee cards.

 

I think that, with Citi, the price of admission (AF) determines how difficult a particular card is to get.  Certainly a no AF card would (likely) be easier to get than one of the $400-$450 AF cards. 

 

Not really certain if they have that "pecking order" thing going on as much as some other card issuers such as Chase or AMEX. 

Diners Club Premier MasterCard $50K / AMEX Gold NPSL / AMEX Zync NPSL / AMEX Blue Cash Preferred $14K / Bank of America Cash Rewards Signature Visa $15K / Merrill Lynch Plus Signature Visa $15K / Wells Fargo Propel 365 $15K / Chase Sapphire Preferred Signature Visa $10K / J P Morgan Select Signature Visa $10K / Chase Slate Visa $6K / CITI Diamond Preferred MasterCard $13.2K / Discover IT $10.5K / IberiaBank Select Visa $8K / 1st Command Bank Platinum Visa $7.5K // Home Depot $9.7K / Lowes $10K

EX = 799 EQ = 812 TU = 811 - 11/2014

Re: Citibank Tiers

Thanks for putting the words in my mouth exactly what I wanted to say what is the pecking order. I think that the AF cards are more difficult to get.
