Re: citi and credit line Increases

Citi makes you wait at least 6 months before you can request CLI.

However, they did up my limit from 6k to 7.5k on my third statement.
Here we go again...

Re: citi and credit line Increases

I just got my 4th Citi card last month and it was the 1st time I was able to grab a small increase in the credit limit upon activation. They won't give me a CLI on my 8 month old Pro card but they seem like they will approve me for any number of cards I wish to apply for. I've only been with them a year though and have no complaints. They treat me a lot better than Chase has.

Re: citi and credit line Increases

I just received my second citi card, while activating I asked that they match the credit line on my first card (+10k), which they did within minutes.
 
If this is your first card, I would wait at least 3-4 months min; if you have addt'l accounts, just call the credit department (or customer service) and request the increase.
