Re: Easiest Citi AA card?

I'm not aware of any difference in approval criteria between the Citi AA cards.  But you could fill a book with the things I'm not aware of without even trying.


Starting Score: ~500 (12/01/2008)
Current Score: EQ 681 (04/05/13); TU 98 728 (01/06/12), TU 08? 760 (provided by Barclay 1/2/14), TU 04 728 (lender pull 01/12/12); EX 742 (lender pull 01/12/12)
Goal Score: 720

That (at least the first bit!) would be my response, between the MC/Visa/Amex.   Of course, they come in different versions, Platinum Select/World Elite/Gold etc, and there will probably be some differences there

Yes, that was what I was wondering, which was the easiest out of the Plat Select / World Elite / Gold etc. This is the only credit card I want as I fly AA all the time!

The gold is going to be easier than the Plat Select, but also check the reward structure makes sense.

Re: Easiest Citi AA card?

I have the Plat select  visa signature @ the platinum level and was instantly approved. Just some background though I had an existing relationship with Citi and got several offers to apply through mail. Wasn't really going to apply but fly AA quite a bit so I just went for it with all the extra bonus miles.
