FIRST pre-approved offer EVER!

I don't know - kind of an exciting moment for me when I got my mail and noticed my first ever pre-approval letter. It was for the Citi Simplicity card. I was interested in a Citi card because you can often get concert/events tix pre-sales and have a chance to get better seats.............. but I think I've done enough damage the past few months and will ignore it.... but it was still nice to get! Smiley Happy
