When you got the 1k increase on Citi is that what you asked for or the counter?


Congrats on it all though.

It was a counter offer. I went for broke and asked for $6K and the computer said it can be instantly increased by 1K. I accepted the 1K and there was a another button at the bottom that said "ask for more" so I did and they tried to do a HP but my report was frozen so that went nowhere. Smiley Tongue

Re: The Big Banks LOVE ME!!!

The larger banks have been kind to me as well. It's good to know that others have the same experience.
