Got accepted twice for CC

Last night I signed up for a citi diamond preferred card, I got approved and received a $3,000 limit. Today I received their verification emails, but I received two each with different ending account numbers and both approved for $3,000. What should I do? I had no intention to open two accounts as I only plan on using one since I already have a discover card I can use. Will Citi detect this and cancel one or? I don't even know how I made this mistake, I will just assume I double clicked or refreshed some how.
