I absolutely LOVE this forum

Because of this forum, I've been able to learn about discussions with underwriters. I've also acquired two cards from all that I've learned here; namely, I was approved for the Travelocity Amex w/ a $6.5k limit on recon, and then the Chase Freedom Visa Siggy on recon with a $5k limit. Believe it or not, these two cards attained on recon have improved my credit substantially, and my other lenders have taken notice and increased most of my limits competitively. :-)

Citi is tough, even on recon. Depends on what your AAoA is, and whether you have baddies. I wouldnt app for Citi in your case. Try a Barclay's card
