Will Citi convert a Staples credit card?

[ Edited ]

I apped for this card on a whim, got the 7 to 10 day message. I assumed I was declined, today the card shows up in the mail. I don't want it anymore. Will it affect my credit if I close it right away or can citi convert it to another type of card?

 

Edit: By the way they approved me for a credit limit of $651, what is with the $1

GOOD QUESTION BUT DO YOU MEAN LIKE IF YOU CAN DO A PRODUCT CHANGE TO ANOTHER CITI CARD?????

Closing all of these credit card accounts once paid off for a fresh start.

I think you'll need to ask Citi directly on this; however, I would suspect they won't though I could easily be wrong.

 

Store cards are typically different than co-branded cards and PCing between them generally isn't possible is my understanding of it from the majority of lenders.

FYI, you get free shipping on ALL phone/online orders when paying with a Staples credit card.

Have no idea at all about the $1...but if you've already received the card, don't close it.  Keep it.  Maybe use it a few times, and pay it off in full each and every month, on time.

 

Citi backs a large number of store cards, and in my experience, a good record on an existing store card gives you an automatic pass to acquire others.

 

They will not convert your Staples card to another card.

 

Good luck with everything!
