Check recent inputs because credit has drastically changed the last 6 months.

As far as I can remember the scors needs to be 680 or above with no recent collections. This may have changed recently and it wouldnt surprise me if the score needed is not in the low to mid 700's now.

Re: Credit Score for Airline Miles Cards

When I apped for Citi AAdvantage last March my EQ was 690+ and TU was 703 it was not an instant approval as I have a fraud alert on my credit.  I was approved after talking to a credit analyst for $3k - she said that she cannot give me more than $3k is because I opened another Citi Card last January with a higher limit.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!
