Well, it may be too late. I don't see the regular citi forward avail on Citi's site anymore. Just the college version... 

FICO: EX: 743 (10/14); TU: 758 (9/14); EQ 721 (9/14)

In My Wallet: Amex X 5 | Barclays X 3 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 3 | Citi X 7 | DCU X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 1 | Macys X 1 | PenFed X 1 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1 = 36 Cards

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!

Re: Should I or should I not????? Citi forward.....

My guess I they're taking it off the market for a few days while they revamp the card. A lot of us have gotten messages that they're sending us a new card. After calling, some are finding out they're being upgraded to Visa Sig, and others are finding out they're getting a global chip...neither of which have been offered for the Forward before. I think this is about to be made into a "higher level" card for Citi.



What's in my wallet:



Left to right:
NPSL ($10k approved)
$5k (EMV - Chip & PIN)
$7k (Visa Sig + EMV)
$7.5k (WEMC)

Transunion FICO: 709 (8/13/12) -> 740 (9/24/12)
Credit Karma: 772 (11/24/13)
Credit Sesame: 755 (11/5/13)
