Pre-Approved for the Citi TY Preferred.

[ Edited ]

Okay I got a pre-approval in the mail for the Citi TY preferred card.  I know very little about Citi only that they do the points.  Now the rate they want to give me is 11.99 for this card and -0- financing for 18 Months but that does not impress me much because I don't carry a balance.   Anyone tell me if the TY preferred is worth a hard pull to get?

CreditKarma score = 785, CreditSesame score = 773, Vantage = 903

Re: Pre-Approved for the Citi TY Preferred.

It depends on your needs, but there is no real rewards structure to speak of, and EVERYONE has been getting preapprovals for them IIRC. 

 

Is there a gap in your credit profile you are looking to fill?


In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $22.200, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Chase CSP (4/14) $12,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600, Chase Freedom (12/12) $5,000

Re: Pre-Approved for the Citi TY Preferred.

I reciently apped for the CY Preferred. My scores were within a few points of yours, and I was approved instantly for 6.5k.  At the time my next highest limit was a 1k CapOne card.  It was a welcome credit line w/ flexible limit showing on my CR's. As stated above, there isn't a great reward structure but it helps with utilization. If you want cash or rewards there's better out there.

Thanks for the input sounds a lot like the Wellsfargo points credit card.
