I fell off the wagon yesterday & apped for a Citi card.  Got the denial just now.  :smileysad:

Would the backdoor Citi # be the way to go here?  I had a car loan they took over a few years ago & was NEVER late!  That should count for something!!!  



One question....I went to that Alliant CU website...what score is that that they give you??  That's not a FICO is it??

It gets worse...I tried the backdoor # & got absolutely NO offer for another type card!


She basically read what was already in the email & told me I can get  my CR from Experian...bla bla. Then I can tell them if any thing is wrong.


I told her the only thing wrong is their scoring system.
