Minimum 6 months from open date.  HP or SP will depend on the elegibility of your account at the time you request the CLI.

 

If you use the online CLI feature, once you provide an amount and personal information, if the next window displays a message along the lines of "By submitting this form you authorize Citibank, NA to check your credit history" it is likely going to result in a HP - at which point you can cancel the form.  If an HP is no issue for you then proceed as usual.

 

Optionally, you can contact them directly and as you proceed with the request, you will need to ask the CSR whether it will be treated as SP or HP.  They should be able to let you know (hopefully - this is Citi we're dealing with) so as to give you the option to cancel before the HP is done.

My husband got a CLI on his Citi Simplicity at the 6-month mark.  His limit went from $7,400 to $11,500 and only a SP.  As everyone else has stated, YMMV.

Re: What's min. time from open to first CLI on Citi

An American CSR mgr recently told me they re evaluated their cli policy and are allowing them prior to the 6 month mark.
He specifically said you do not have to wait six months any more. Now..take that for what it is... Lol I have only bad experiences with Citi anywho.

Looks like a HP form to me. Enter income, then the next screen comfirms the info entered plus authorizes a credit pull. 

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Correct - this is the HP form.  Since you are closely watching your HPs, I'd say "cancel".

Re: What's min. time from open to first CLI on Citi

I got my Diamond Prefered in March of 2012 and waited until the 7th statement to cut, that way I was sure to get past 6 months, first statement sometimes can be a partial month.

 

I started at 8.3k, asked for 3k, got 2k, approved online with only a SP.

 

But, I tried agian in Dec 2012 and got denied due to not being another 6 months.  Had a chat with CSR and was told CLI every six months from requesting, so, since I was denied in Dec, I have to wait a full 6 months from then.

 

Now I know better.

About 400k in Credit Lines
CSP 29.9k, Citi DP 42.5k, Chase Marriott 12k, Chase IHG 6.5k, Sams MC 20k, Amex Hilton Surpass 356k, Hawaii Air 26k, Discover More 50k, Chase SWA 3.5k, WF PLOC 30k, B of A Visa 43.8k, Wells Plat Visa 8.3k, RC Willey 5k, Pen Fed Visa 43.7k, Pen Fed PLOC 25k, Lowes 25k, CSR 28.8k
